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!

A 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!

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast

Make it a Perfect Breakfast or Lunch!

French toast, also known as eggy bread or gypsy toast, is a dish of bread soaked in beaten eggs and then fried.

When French toast is served as a sweet dish, milk, sugar, vanilla or cinnamon are also commonly added before pan-frying, and then it may be topped with sugar (often powdered sugar), butter, fruit, or syrup. When it is a savory dish, it is generally fried with a pinch of salt, and can then be served with a sauce such as ketchup or mayonnaise.

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons sunflower oil

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

10 slices of bread (makes 5 servings, 2 slices per serving)

1/2 cup raisins (for serving)

Maple Syrup (for serving)

Directions:

In a large bowl whisk eggs with sugar and vanilla extract. After the eggs are well beaten add in milk. Whisk until well combined.

In a 10 inch or 12 inch skillet, add 1 tablespoon sunflower oil and heat it over medium heat. Dip bread in egg mixture. Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side.

Depending on your skillet and bread slices you may have 2 batches. After the first batch is done, lower the heat and add remaining tablespoon of oil and repeat the process by dipping the bread in egg and frying it until golden brown on both sides. Divide French Toast in serving plates.

In a small saucepan heat maple syrup and raisins over low heat. You don’t want the syrup to bubble, but rather get warm and less thick. When heated pour the syrup and raisins over the French Toast and enjoy right away with milk, coffee or drink of choice.

Like mentioned above, this recipe makes 5 servings (2 slices per serving).
