Yes: There are many options for meal replacement/supplementation. Key elements to look for in a dietary meal replacement would be 1) a balance of protein to carbohydrate - look for a better than 1:3 ratio 2) quality ingredients (many are soy or whey based - you would look for soy to avoid dairy. There are many brands so you many want to sample a few. Consider some research into the glycemic index.
