High Fat – Dairy Free Foods
I’ve had a few people get in touch recently as they are struggling to get their little one’s to eat enough calories and are wanting suggestions of high fat foods which don’t contain dairy.
So here it is, my list of ten high fat dairy free foods…
1. Avocado – Avocados are a great source of fat, potassium and fiber. Check out this recipe for a chocolate avocado mousse which is dairy free, soya free and egg free.
2. Dark Chocolate – Dark chocolate is high in fat, just be sure to check the ingredients before you buy as some manufacturers add dairy and soya. 70% cocoa or above is best, I usually buy Lindt dark chocolate 70% but it is a may contain. I also use pure organic cacao powder in my baking as it’s high fat and full of antioxidants.
3. Eggs – Eggs are high in fat and also contain lots of other beneficial nutrients. Omelettes are a great way to get lots of nutrients in one meal, you can add any meat or vegetables into your omelettes.
4. Fish – Fatty fish is best like salmon, mackerel or sardines. I used to buy my son this salmon and cucumber sandwhich from Tesco’s while we were out shopping.
5. Nuts – Nuts are a great source of healthy fat. These almond biscuits are delicious and these chocolate cupcakes are made with almond flour, eggs and cocoa powder so they are great for getting high fats in your diet.
6. Extra virgin olive oil – Another healthy fat, this can be used for all cooking and contains vitamins E and K.
7. Coconut – Coconuts are high in fat but healthy, coconut milk can be used in lots of recipes in place of dairy and it makes a delicious ice cream. This chocolate cake recipe is great as it contains coconut flour, coconut milk, almond flour, eggs and cocoa.
8. Black olives – Are high in fat, some research suggests that olive extracts function as anti-histamines and help lessen an allergic reaction – Source
10. Beef – Not the lean cuts of course but beef is high in fat and also a great source of iron.
