#859717 18M Old - With Genetics Against Her

Its so ironic, I did WW for several years and gravitate towards food items with 'added fiber' and 'protein' type bars, but come to find out that the added protein is typically added soy!!?


I guess my baking and cooking skills will be back in full use! Luckily I enjoy baking and experimenting.


Hubs didn't comment on a carb-free dinner last night. ha.He looked around the table, but didn't ask.

I normally would have made biscuits or rolls to go with the fish and vegetables, but last night we all ate the same foods.

Grilled trout, mashed potatoes and sauteed peppers and mushrooms.


He ended up making himself some popcorn after dinner for a snack since he wasn't full.


Its a good first step for him.

Screening out soy is worse, IMO, than gluten. When my son was an infant he seemed to have issues with milk and soy formulas so I dropped both from my diet.


Thank you!!


My mother and husband both were like 'oh thats great, soy is an easy fix, no more soy milk.' Neither of them realized that I switched her off of soy six months ago.


To prove my point I told them both to blindly go and grab any box from the pantry.

Husband's random item had a 'contains wheat, soy, and milk'

Mother's random item had 'contains: soy, wheat'


Neither of them had any idea how prominent soy is in any packaged food item.  I myself didn't realize until the last two grocery trips when I started really reading labels on everything.


We eat whole foods and clean for dinner, but snacks and treats are typically available in the pantry.


anyone realize that even the gummy fruit snacks have soy leticin? ugh.


I ended up making some gluten-free, DF muffins for the house for everyone snack on or have for breakfast.

I personally have not taken celiac off the table yet.

I suspect the immunologist will run the IgG and another RAST.
Because soy and gluten both are in everything I've resorted to mostly gluten lite dinners, at least removing the soy.

I can't get pushy with daycare until I get an action plan and official allergy statement. She doesn't eat much of their food, but their snacks are my concern.

Today was saltines and soy butter.
So she ate a crap load of saltines. Course now I need to Google their nutritional info for soy content.

The label reading is making me cross eyed already.
