I have a blog that may help. It is designed to provide recipes and information for those suffering with or caring for those suffering with one to all of the top 8 allergens. There's even an alternative names for soy and soy-free foods list page and a list of allergy-friendly stocks, broths and bullions page. All the recipes on there are soy-free as well. The link to the main page is: http://naturalandfree.blogspot.com/
Also, another good place to go is http://realfoodallergyfree.com/, especially the Allergy Free Wednesdays page.
Hope this helps some! Feel free to message me at any time. I'm more than happy to help. :) Best of luck to you.

I am really struggling with this too. My 14 mo daughter was just diagnosed with a soy allergy. FYI- soy can even be in rice milk... I figured that would be safe, but no such luck. Kirkland (Costco) Rice Milk is by far the best I have found (no sugar added). Happy Tots (Happy Baby) brand products are great, Enjoy Life brand is wonderful, most noodles are soy free. Kirkland Marinara or Prego Heart Smart seem to have no soy, or it is not listed on the label. Oh, and I found a soy-free boxed rice mix!! Lundberg Risotto does have dairy, so hopefully dairy isn't a problem. My daughter is just lactose intolerant, not allergic. I thought I was going to have a breakdown the first time I went to the store and started reading labels. It might just be a coincidence, but a lot of the gluten-free products I have looked at do not contain soy in the ingredient list. Hope this helps! Maybe you have discovered some soy-free foods since your post?

It is amazing how many things have soy in it. My nephew is allergic to soy along with other things. It is very hard to go to the grocery store and read every single label. I really enjoy rice milk as an alternative.

I had to avoid it with nursing my 3rd and still avoid it with him at 15 months even though he's weaned. Bread was the hardest thing for me - if you have an Aldi's nearby, I finally found some hogie style rolls there that do not have soy in them! There were a couple of name brands that didn't, but I didn't like them as well - Earth Grains I think? Just read the labels, like I'm sure you already do! I'm kind of drawing a blank now on what else I could have - OH Cherry Pop Tarts were a treat. LOL
