UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.
One of the hardest things when going dairy soy free is to do the research on what brands make dairy soy free foods. Not just brands that everything they make is dairy soy free, like Udis & Enjoy Life, but brands you use to eat that have dairy soy free foods. In this post I'm going to let you benefit from my research and give you some snacks and meals that I have found to be dairy soy free. As always please double check the ingredients to make sure they are still dairy soy free (sometimes ingredients change).
Sugary cereals are not good for you, but if you just got to have some here are a few to get you started. Believe it or not these have no dairy or soy. Reese's Puffs, Rice Chex, Apple Cinnamon Chex, Cinnamon Chex, Cherrios, Fruity Cherrios, & Cocoa Puffs. I'm sure there are more but these are some we buy regularly that I have checked many times.
For spaghetti you just needs a few items (unfortunately one of those items is not parmesan cheese, go ahead and say goodbye to cheese now, treat it like a cheating ex-boyfriend and kick it to the curb). You can probably use your favorite spaghetti. So far I have not found any dry pasta that uses dairy or soy so they are pretty safe. Now the sauce can be tricky. Either use homemade sauce or try to find a natural sauce (but still read ingredients even natural sauces sometimes have soy). My go to is Prego 100% Natural Sauces (I love the roasted garlic & herb). Then add ground beef or turkey if you wish.
