Today is waffle day. I good day to be an A in my house. I make millet, sweet rice flour waffles, and they taste great. Problem is, I have a hard time not eating more than one. Today I only had one and a half squares (my waffle maker does two squares, so I count each square as a waffle) and I had 2 eggs, so more eggs than waffles...barely. But, my As love that I make waffles again.
I finally found a brand of soy yogurt that my son loves. Stonyfield Farms O'Soy. It comes in 6 packs of the smaller 4 oz size, and he ate two of them yesterday! For him to eat two whole anythings is banner news. I usually taste things before feeding them to the baby, just a nibble. These taste almost like real yogurt, most soy yogurt tastes like mylanta jello, especially the kinds with gums and thickeners in them. O'Soy has inulin, a natural fiber that helps calcium absorption, according to the label. I've heard other good things about inulin. Then it has real fruit puree, and is colored with beet juice or pumpkin juice concentrates, in the flavors I've bought, and as an added bonus, it has five or six different culture critters. I used to buy that brand's cow milk yogurt at Costco for my husband, who is also very picky, but they seem to have stopped carrying it...drat. I don't know that he'll ever try soy yogurt.
I also orderd a soymilk maker, one that can also make rice milk and others (most brands don't really say you can make rice milk with them). Once I get it I'll blog about how it goes. Don't know if I'll be able to make soymilk that's up to snuff for my picky As, but for an O nonsecretor, homemade rice milk is pretty much all we can have. Millet milk sounds interesting. I probably won't use it for nut milks, with all the food allergies in my family, I tend to keep nuts separate from other foods and cooking equipment.
