I've only just started THM this week, and I'm already discouraged. I'm a nursing (exclusively) mom. My baby is SUPER sensitive to dairy. I tried to test it again this week, and he's reacted badly. . Bye bye dairy & "fat". I've noticed soooo many recipes (especially snacks and desserts) are based primarily on dairy foods. How much coconut oil can a person consume without gagging? I've also never been much of a "from scratch" kind of cook, and I'm feeling waaay overwhelmed. I thought I was going to do well with this, until I realized I was going to be very limited...and I've always had an aversion to salmon. Bleh. Ideas?
Unfortunately there is a lot of dairy...lets think of some DF options. Kale chips? Sprouted bread with a little fruit jam? Macaroons made with unsweetened coconut and dipped in skinny chocolate? Veggies and salsa? Nuts? Rotisserie chicken? Steak fajitas? Meatloaf made from either ground turkey, chicken, or beef? Gluccie puddings made with almond milk? Hummus made from beans and garlic and a little oil with plan-approved crackers or veggies? Almond milk and berry smoothies? Almond flour pancakes? Joseph's pitas topped with pizza sauce and meat and your fave veggies? No sugar added pickles? Sprouted bread dipped in egg whites for french toast? Do you like tuna or tilapia? Depending on your purism standards, some hotdogs are ok for S. Sloppy joes made E style and served over E bread? Just a few ideas....hopefully something will stand out!

Ho hum... I've really enjoyed the book, and I learned a lot. My limits because of nursing make staying on this plan very difficult. My little guy is also sensitive to tomato sauce. We also try to eat only organic animal products, so those recipes that call for egg whites are just too wasteful for us. (I haven't found organic egg whites in a carton.) I think I'm just going to try to incorporate things (watch my carb intake and avoid wheat) where I can. Maybe I can be a "die hard" when my little guy is no longer nursing. Thank you for your help.
I am doing the plan dairy & egg free. Although it is a challenge and I am suffering from diet fatigue from eating the same things there are some plans. The Joy of Gluten Free Baking is a really good S baking cook book that you can easily substitute almond milk in with good results. Their blueberry muffins and pancakes turn out well compared to the THM ones. You have to take cheese out of everything - and just do what you can. Yes, it is hard - sounds like we have similar limitations and I agree - doesn't make it easy -but it's working - slowly -but working. I eat a lot of salmon with non starchy veggies & a lot of chicken breast on salad for fuel pull or with veggies for whatever it ends up being S or Fuel Pull. I try to throw an E in - like Quinoa soup or something - I can send you some of my recipes for dairy free - just IM me.
stacylynn: I agree, Steffanie, on both thoughts!

steffanie3: Hmm, I haven't seen it missyhi, I will look a bit though because that sounds great Can you type it in your address bar on your computer? Sometimes when I start typing it will remember titles on sites I have been on and be enough to pull it up.

steffanie3: I think it is called Lily Pie, if you look at them it should say in the corner or search for "weightloss tickers"

justbeachy6: I got mine at Lily Slim. You go to there sight and create a customized "ticker". Then they give you a bunch of links--one of which will work for this forum--I don't remember which one it was, but it took me a few tries. Copy the link then come...

Avonlea: I'm a fairly new THM...started only about 3 months ago. I've lost about 13 pounds but lately my body has just quit. I've even gained back a couple pounds. I'm losing inspiration because it seems to have quit working and I can feel myself wanting to cave
