I am not sure if anyone can help me, but I am desperate for a few new recipes. I have been diagnosed with fructose malabsorption and so have a ton of dietary restrictions. Basically what I CAN have is plain meat (ham and bacon are usually sugar cured), potatoes, rice, spinach, lemon, mushrooms, garlic, and dairy. I CANNOT have wheat, onions, soy, beans, sugar in almost any form (including artificial sugars and natural sugars- I can have dextrose/glucose), fruit, and almost no vegetables (only a few greens are OK). I also have to watch corn in certain forms. Like I can have degermed cornmeal and cornstarch, but not plain corn. Anybody have any ideas? It has been terribly expensive buying gluten free, sugar free things and trying to still not eat the same 5 meals. My staples right now are alfredo with rice noodles, potato soup, mushroom soup, plain hamburgers, plain roast, and chicken and rice. I have a family of five and would like to only have to cook one meal at night. Just hoping someone might have new ideas to try. Thank you in advance for anything.

Day Two on Whole 30 went pretty smooth. I think it helps that I’ve been pretty busy all week so far. I’m still struggling with the whole “eating breakfast as soon as you get up” thing. I’m not ready for food until after I had my coffee and had time to think about what I […]
Tracy and I decided over the weekend to give the Whole 30 program a try. I talked more about it here, but basically we’re eating clean and cutting out sugar, grains, dairy and legumes for the next 30 days and see how we feel. I started playing around over the weekend eating most of my […]
I had such high hopes in January that this would be the year when I finally get healthy and lose a bunch of weight. Fast forward a few short weeks and I was back on my old unhealthy eating schedule. I was too busy, eating healthy was too expensive, the list of excuses could go […]
