My Favorite MSPI Friendly Recipes

Milk soy protein intolerance (MSPI) is a temporary inability to digest the proteins found in cow’s milk and soy products. Learn more here about MSPI!

I while back I told you that my baby boy was diagnosed with MSPI. To learn more about what it is and our journey read this post here What is MSPI.

At first I thought it would be hard to eat and find foods that are safe for him because I’m nursing. But once I learned what to avoid I realized that most of those foods are either dairy, soy or processed foods that I’m anyways not consuming that often.

I enjoy eating fresh fruits and vegetables, I already get organic produce and meats. I’m not that crazy about gluten myself, quiet honestly I love zoodles and spaghetti squash in place of same old pasta. I also love smoothies, salads and meatless meals. For a while I was avoiding meat, gluten, nuts, peanuts, beans, rice, seafood and eggs. I know it seems like a lot, but I enjoy quinoa and potatoes (all kinds), veggies and fruits,water and coffee too.

Now that he is six and half months and starting to enjoy solid foods as well (avocado, banana, applesauce, sweet potato, butternut squash, zucchini, Quinoa Baby Cereal from NurturMe). I’m also slowly adding foods to my diet like eggs, chicken, pork (with them we had success). The foods that are still out for sure are seafood (fish we didn’t try shellfish) and rice. Others we are slowly testing.

But for a while this is how my meals looked like… Lots of green, red, yellow and all fresh and super yummy!
