Ladies, the MSPI diet is very difficult (but worth it). Can anyone help me find commercial foods that are Milk and soy free? Like brands for cereals, chicken broths, deli meats, soups... I'm getting tired of always making everything from scratch. Help!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

hi momma's,
I know this post is really old, but I was just told I have to cut dairy and all soy out. I feel like I'm going to starve. I'm such a lazy eater and so incredibly overwhelmed. Keep the lists coming!! :)

Thanks for the great response! So funny my husband just bought the chicken broth you specified from Costco just the other day! Gotta love him for reading labels for me! I live in Canada (quebec) so some foods are not available here (Like Earth's margarine). I actually had to import the soy-free buttery spread from the states! And Target doesn't exist here. I'm gonna have to make a canadian list of brands available here and eventually post it to expand our selection. Thanks a zillion!

I am so sorry, I just noticed this question. Here is a very long reply :) I still always double check! (my daughter does not tolerate Soy Lecithin, so my choices are even more limited) I hope this still helps!

Pacific Natural foods organic broths (come in 4 pack of 1 cup size containers or in Qt size) my daughter loves couscous cooked in vegetable broth
Bisquick Heart smart mix to make biscuits, pancakes!
Multigrain cheerios!
Kashi Cinnamon Harvest shredded wheat
Annies bunnies honey Graham crackers
Earth's Best Elmo graham strips
Earth's Best Alphabet cookies
apple & Pretzel sticks with PB&honey
Manwich- my family loves the stuff
1 brand (Colossal) of rotisserie chicken
Applegate Farms organic frozen chicken strips-(not nuggets)
Earth's best frozen organic Elmo Pasta
Target brand Cod fish sticks in bag not box (they have many kinds so check lable) I serve with frozen Sweet potato fries)

I carry a Kroger brand can of Franks and Beans or microwave Chicken and Dumplings when we are out & about in case she gets hungry.

I make Mac n Cheese (easy) from Ditalini noodles & melt a piece of Rice Vegan "cheese" slices with rice milk & Earth Balance soy free margerine

here is a list I am keeping of responses people sent me when I asked what to feed my daughter on the MSPI message board.

Plain Lay's Stax, (plain) Fritos,
Chex,
Watermelon
fresh blueberries,
fresh apple or
pear slices
Fresh grapes, cut in half
Craisins
peeled broccoli stalk (slice the insides into little sticks).
Bake sweet potatoes or yams, peel and dice.
sweet potatoe fries or baked,
cashews
plain shredded wheat cereal soaked in "milk" (almond).

Hormel Naturals lunch meat, especially the oven-roasted turkey.
applegate farms cold cuts
Even prosciutto and figs!
Also, diced fresh meat. I buy a (free range) turkey once every two weeks or so, roast that sucker, and we eat from it for a week.
boneless pork chops, sear both sides, then reduce with apple juice or safe chicken broth and simmer 8 minutes, serve with applesauce or mango chutney


I make a batch of muffins http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/flax-an...

I make my own french toast
with safe raisin bread from Trader Joe's and freeze it so I can pop some in the toaster oven and they can eat it
