Beans are high in protein & and when teamed with whole grains complete the amino acids need to be 'complete'. They are high in fiber and exercellent sources of nutriets.
Consider egg whites as a protein source too. They are very healthy without the yolk and can be made into delicious omeletes loaded with veggies for a great start to the day.
I hope this helps open some options for you

Hi, Audra Marie:
Your pediatrician should be able to hook you up with a nutritionist who can help you plan your diet so that it doesn't negatively impact your baby's system. I'm lactose intolerant, plus have trouble with soy, and had to be careful about what I ate while nursing my kids, too; they needed to go on supplementary formula.
Here are some SP articles that might help:

I look forward to getting out of the initial sugar withdrawal faze and reaping the results of better eating. :)
Thanks for the encouragement.

Congratulations on your choice. Eating healthy does take some research in the beginning and giving up things you are accustom to eating. Before long your body adjust and you do not want to go back to the old style. There are many protein foods that are not dairy,--eggs---dried beans (many to choose from) lean meats, (preferrably natural and not harmone laced meats). Hubby and I have changed our eating habits and we are feeling better and enjoy the foods that we eat.
Keep on track
I set a goal to not eat sugary foods (cakes, cookies, etc.) in 2008 unless it was for a special occasion. I need to slowly transition the rest of my eating over to healthier food choices.
Any suggestions for protein rich foods that don't include dairy? I nurse my toddler and she doesn't do well if I have dairy.
Great to be here!
