Struggling with Lyme disease

What do you do about margarine in recipes?


So… what do you do about margarine in recipes?  The non-dairy margarine that I had found and had been using, contains a potato based ingredient (vitamin A palmitate).  sigh.  I can’t use real butter yet because I’m not well enough to challenge it.  And, since I don’t have my daughter on the diet yet, I’m still keeping her at the non-dairy point.  It would be cruel for me to make things with real butter only to turn around and tell her she can’t have it. 

I wonder if Earth Balance sticks have potato?  I stopped using them because they really didn’t taste very good.  But, if I just use them for baking, maybe it won’t be as noticable?  Here are the ingredients for the Buttery Sticks:

Expeller-pressed natural oil blend (soybean, palm fruit, canola and olive oils), filtered water, pure salt, natural flavor (derived from corn, no MSG, no alcohol, no gluten), soy protein, soy lecithin, lactic acid (non-dairy, derived from sugar beets), colored with beta-carotene from natural sources. Contains soy.

It looks okay?  Has anyone super sensitive to nightshades tried it and reacted to it?
