My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Finding a Diary-Free AND Soy-Free yogurt for my yogurt lover, Alysa - PRICELESS!

A big thank you to Alisa at Go Dairy Free for letting us all know about this. The biggest down side of taking Alysa off soy for her intolerance was the soy yogurt. We can't give her real yogurt because of Kayla and Alysa LOVED her yogurt. It was also a great extra source of fat, protein and calcium that she would definitely eat every day! So I was excited to learn that Turtle Mountain, makers of soy yogurts and ice creams has not only added coconut milk based ice cream to it's line of products, but coconut milk based yogurts. They are dairy AND soy free. I knew they were coming out in early July, but as of last week Whole Foods did not have them yet. I called last night and was told I needed to talk to the dairy manager today to find out if and when they'd be getting them. Imagine my wonderous surpise when he said they came in THIS morning! I rushed over before lunch to pick up the new yogurts as well as some other necessities, like ice cream for the girls. ;) I was able to test it out for lunch - blueberry. I didn't know what to expect, but it's really good. Kayla ate half of hers which is typical - she was never into the fruit flavors, but Alysa devoured hers. I'm glad to see she still likes yogurt. The protein content is less than typical yogurt, but the fat and calcium is good. Here they are with their yogurt.

Alysa couldn't let any drop go uneaten.

And thank you Janeen for finding the dairy-free ranch dressing. Now I just hope it tastes good.
