shopping for milk-free food

In spite of feeling crappy last night because of my cold, I headed out to the grocery store to get some food. I know my cold will only get worse so I had better head on out before we get incapacitated and starve over the weekend (hubby is sicker than I am).

It seemed like I all I did was to read labels looking for anything that doesn't have any milk products. And what I learned is that almost everything I have been given the girls have milk in them. I was looking forward to going home with tons of safe food for the girls, instead I came home with even less stuff. Even some of the baby food I give them has milk.

It's not going to be easy. Here is a list we have to now live by. (We are going to buy a small laminated list to put in our wallets from The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network )

Can you have your groceries delivered ? It might be easier since you can see all the labels online before you buy. Also, if you're sick, it's a whole lot less stressful than going to the store and looking for food. I don't know if they have a delivery service in your area though. A lot of grocery stores in Cali deliver now. It's great especially if you buy a lot of heavy stuff like detergents and water.

I trully wish there was a groceries that delivers. Would be useful for the amount of diapers and milk we get!!!
