Given you are a fan of Saturated fat and are wanting more, have you thought about using Coconut Oil; Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream? Coconut is high in Saturated Fat.

I’m a 72 year old senior and within the last several years I’ve come to be allergic to dairy. The proteins in cows milk. It is in everything! Well that’s an exaggeration, but it seems to be. It can be in soups, cereals, bars, etc. you must begin reading labels. Under the ingredients manufacturers must list allergens in bold print. I’ll try to upload a photo.

The good news is your baby will most likely outgrow it, but I however probably won’t. Kudos to you for breast feeding.

Have you looked at Hemp Seed? or Avocado?? Both have healthy fats, and are great additions to salads. I also mix the Hemp Seed with flaxseed and add it to cereals, yogurt, etc.

Thank you. That's helpful food for thought. I was using dairy to maintain my fats more than proteins and find it difficult to get as much fat elsewhere. I am a fan of saturated fat so trying to fit dripping in where I can. I eat a lot of meat fried and roasted. Any tips on increasing fats short of drinking spoonfuls of nut oil?

If you have an allergy, you do need to be reading labels. Companies do not decide to change their recipe, notify databases and then change their product. They change their product and it is up to you to catch it before you eat it.

Using nuts, seeds and oils would be an easy, dairy free way to add calories. Asian recipes may be a great familiar starting place. Check out some cookbooks from the library (I am very partial to Robin Robertson as she usually offers common grocery store substitutions for specialty ingredients. Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen is another book of common options).

As far as straight calorie swaps, again, you are going to want to monitor how the foods that you like stack up against your calorie ranges. If you find rice milk is your favorite milk alternative that will be a lower calorie and protein option than cow's milk or even soy milk. If you were relying on dairy for your protein needs, the swap to rice milk is going to leave you under. In that instance using tofu, nuts or lentils to make up the remaining calories would be the most beneficial swap. If you are eating chicken and beef and just using rice milk for cow's milk, you likely won't need the extra protein boost so the remaining calories would best be used boosting whatever you are low in.

-google first. ask questions later.

If the calories are a little more, I would imagine that it doesn't matter given that you want to maintain/gain weight.

Have you thought about using Savoury Yeast? (AKA Nutritional Yeast) - it has a cheesy flavour and is an excellent source of other essential nutrients you would otherwise possibly miss out on. It is great with soy milk used for cheese sauce and on pastas in place of cheese, too:

You could make your own hummus and add it to that, to make a healthy 'cheese spread'

My grandson has serious allergies, including to dairy, however his blood results came down enough that he HAS to have a little every day so that he doesn't suffer anaphylaxis. He also has serious allergies to all nuts and kiwifruit, and egg, as well. There are loads of alternatives available.

I don't know if you can get these where you are. They are sold in many countries. I frequently use the Alpro Custard and others haven't known it wasn't the 'normal' custard.

In some countries it is known as Belsoy.

Thanks. I'm still learning but it seems that even a trace of dairy is enough to trigger so I'm using vegan alternatives but I don't think the cheeses are a calorie match?

Substitutes for dairy via SP menus isn't an option, however they are easily substituted. I have a dairy intolerance , altho' I can eat cheese and yoghurt o.k. I use Soy Milk myself, which has pretty much the most comparable nutrient base to dairy, out of the substitutes. If you use some other alternative, ensure that it is a good source of protein and calcium.

I hope that helps.
