  1. Thank you all very much for your replies. Daughter broke out worse last night and the nurse practioner that saw her this morning isn't convinced it's soy (even though it's worse when I eat soy, it's worst right after she eats, and she does the arching back in pain thing....). We have her 6 mo regular appointment on Monday, so I'll bring it up again. Also - I was able to find the soy free earth balance at our Whole Foods. I'm very excited to try it - my baked potato with olive oil just wasn't the same last night. I'm going to try some of the other oils posted here. Thanks again for all of your help!
  2. Hi all. I do not have celiac, but a dear friend does and she recommended this site to me for my current food restriction difficulties. I do hope that you indulge me and don't vote me immediately off the island. I am allergic to all sorts of things, including dairy. I am breastfeeding my 6mo old daughter, and recently discovered that she is allergic/sensitive to soy (rash, arched back after feeding, etc). Now, since I'm allergic to dairy, I've got a lot of soy in my diet and I'm trying to figure out how to replace it all. I've discovered a great appreciation of almond milk for most of my milk substitutions and know that rice milk ice cream is really not so bad. Other things will be easy. The thing I'm struggling most to replace is butter. I've been using Earth Balance, but now that is obviously out. Any thoughts? Do they make a rice milk based butter? I live in a city that doesn't have many vegan friendly grocery stores, but I do have a Whole Foods that should be handy. Thanks in advance for any help/guidance!
