|Henry's first pizza -- vegan cheese.|
Until recently, I had held off on giving Henry dairy alternatives. I had no good reason for not offering them, I honestly just didn't know much about them.
But it became apparent, we needed to give up waiting, and go on with our lives. So after some research, we have settled on Henry having a combination of almond milk, coconut milk, and breastmilk. As we wean, he gets more of the first two -- coconut milk for the excellent fats, and almond milk for the protein.
We've also been exploring more with other dairy alternatives including almond milk yogurt and vegan cheese. Both have been huge successes!
I still miss dairy, but I too am learning to cope. Vegan cheese is no mozzarella, but any pizza is better than no pizza. And I think Hen agrees.
