Need some cooking ideas, please?

Hey, so I’ve just be diagnosed with a stomach condition that means I have problems eating certain foods. I can eat very lit spicy food but nothing to greasy or fatty.

The best thing I can eat is fish, a small amount of chicken occasionally or turkey but that’s it. No red meat and no diary.
I can get all salad, potatoes, and veg. Plus pasta and anything wheat based. With such a narrow diet for meals I’d like some ideas for different dishes I can make with lots of flavour.

Thank you

    Um… How about wholegrain pasta with a kind of ratatouille sauce using courgettes, aubergines, yellow peppers, tomatoes, basil, onion and garlic. Yum!

    Or grilled salmon with capers, yellow rice, lemons and asparagus.

    I know it’s hard having to limit so many things out of your diet, but by doing this, you can try new things too! Have fun and eat well!

    What about spaghetti with different types of sources like carbonara etc. 🙂

    I have a similar problem.

    Thankfully, there are still many, many tasty things you can eat. Listed below are more than 200,000 possibilities; each with a nutrition panel to help you see how much fat is in each recipe. In spicy recipes, scale down the spice. Surely, with so many possibilities you can find something you like that works for you.

    Asian food is a particularly good fit for your dietary restrictions, as it typically uses little meat and has a high vegetable content. To make stir-fry lower in fat, steam the vegetables and meat instead of stir-frying them.

    have you tried using lentils instead of meat – you can cook up a good chili con carne with puy lentils and red kidney beans plus fresh chilli – amount according to taste? might suit your stomach for the little spicy food. in addition turkey and chicken drumsticks can be marinated into tandoori and turkey mince makes neat burgers and moussaka. you’re not really very restricted.
