When you get the news that you are going to have to make a drastic diet change (and it’s not by choice), it can be devastating!
And then when you realize that cutting dairy and soy from your diet is A LOT more involved than you at first believed, it can feel like the end of the world. Especially if you like sweets and desserts. Thankfully, there are a lot of dairy and soy free desserts for breastfeeding moms, and I’m going to share some of my favorites with you today.
Both of my babies had a dairy milk allergy, and so I’ve been through this on two separate occasions.
I know what it’s like to feel like you are starving, like nothing is appealing, or quenching your hunger for something comforting. Or dessert-y. (I love that being a blogger allows me to make up words.)
Are you struggling on this diet? Barely hanging on? Get this 7-day meal plan full of delicious, good for you and your milk supply recipes.
Before I realized that there were desserts that I could make super quickly and easily, I ate WAY too many Oreos (they are MSPI-safe).
Like, I’m not even going to tell you how many bags of Oreos I ate. Enough that I may never want to eat another Oreo again.
I’ve also included some recipes that would work great around the holidays, because that was always the hardest for me. I actually prepared my own turkey dinner and took a pre-prepared plate with me to the three different Thanksgiving dinners that I attended one year.
Just remember that you are eating a healthier diet these days, so a little dairy and soy free indulgence is quite all right.
If you’re just starting out and don’t really know what you’re doing, check out my beginner’s guide to MSPI and nursing.
The following recipes:
- are quick to make
- are simple
- don’t include any specialty ingredients
- are safe and delicious (of course!)
