Hello there! Due to Kallen’s possible dairy allergy, his pediatrician recommended that I cut dairy from my diet when he was 3 1/2 weeks old. We’re still not totally sure if he has a dairy allergy, but better to be safe than sorry! He’s been reacting much better to my breast milk since I’ve eliminated it, so that’s a good sign and totally worth the sacrifice!

Anyway…when I began living dairy free, I realized just how hard it was! Also, I’ve been relying on dairy for protein and snacks, so I knew I needed to get a bit more creative.

One quick snack idea that’s also high in protein? An egg white, turkey bacon, avocado bowl. This literally takes less than five minutes to prepare and inhale, has lots of protein and good fats (great for breast feeding).


1/3 cup liquid egg whites

2 slices Applegate Farms turkey bacon

1/3 avocado


Grab a microwave safe bowl. Pour your egg whites in and nuke on high for 1 minute 15 seconds. Tear your turkey bacon* into bite size pieces and add on top. Slice an avocado into chunks or slices. Voila!

* I pre-cook my turkey bacon and then keep it in the fridge in a Ziploc bag to grab as needed.

I make this during the afternoon or evening between meals. It’s so yummy, easy and healthy. Win win!
