Posted by: 971 (Guest), Sunday, May 13, 2007, 10:41pm
I am really sick,and in allot of pain,my back is bothering me a great deal and I cant move around much,I need some ideas for low carb meals that are quick and easy as I cannot stand for long and cook due to extreme back pain and weakness.Anyway My brain is also foggy headed because i have fibromyolgia and chronic fatigue....so its hard for me to plan what to buy and cooking is a big challenge too.I need help here guys!!!!!! Someone is going to the store for me since I cant sit for long periods of time and I need to know what to tell them to buy.suggestions?

A little back ground first,I have digestive problems so I cant have raw vegetables,and im allergic to almonds and walnuts and sunflower seeds,as well as eggs,yeast,soy,peas and gluten.I am also an ex-vegan.I am just starting diet changes....

I had a doc appointment with a doctor who specializes in bio-identical hormones since I have severe PCOS.And she told me I am way low in progesterone and my testosterone is high.  and suggested due to my insulin sensitivity to really cut back  ON CARBS and increase proteins.She told me to avoid grains too.She wanted me to go as low as 44 grams of carbs per day temporarily to get my insulin under control.I will be happy if I can just get off the beans and grains and get on the proteins

Get plenty of beef and turkey broth. Lots of beneficial vegetables--broccoli, kale or collards, sweet potatoes or canned pumpkin, onions (the yellow ones are fairly mild), some neutrals like zucchini and carrots. For fruit try bananas, they are easy to digest, low on the glycemic index and beneficial for Os.

If you can handle it, get some hamburger or a chuck roast, and some turkey cutlets. If not, don't worry about the meat right now. I know you're still adjusting to eating meat. If you can handle meat, use it in the vegetable soup. It's an easy and simple way to get meat into your diet without eating it all by itself.

You might try making up some small hamburger patties. If eating beef alone really bothers you, try making beef-turkey patties, with half hamburger and half ground turkey. They are very light and delicious hot or cold.  

Make up a batch of beef veggie soup and keep it in a thermos by your bed. Whenever you can, have some. If you get tired of beef, switch over to turkey veggie soup. Bananas are good for when you're taking meds or supplements and need something more substantial to eat. Hope this helps :)

have you done your secretor test yet?
Inflammatory foods:
wheat and dairy(cheese, sour cream, yogurt, milk, buttermilk, etc)(all prev allowed cheeses - feta, mozarella, goat, farmer - go to neutral infrequents - 1 to 2 times a month)  are your most harmful foods.  they provoke inflammation - I can personally attest to the wheat part of that. dairy is terrible for O's where sinus is concerned as well.
here are more:
corn and corn-by-products - avoid HFCS like the plague (high fructose corn syrup)
potatoes, tomatoes and tomato products, bell peppers, eggplant - all nightshades
corn, cottonseed, peanut and safflower oils
lentil beans
kiwi, oranges, tangerines
food additives
processed sugars
coffee (reg and decaf)      acid is the problem here.

I know it's tough to move to eating meat when you've been vegan for a while. I was strict macro for several years, and it took me a while to be able to eat beef again. Once I started though I knew it was beneficial for me--I felt so much better afterwards! :)

Be gentle with yourself and remember, one step at a time. A good rule for Os is: when in doubt, eat protein and beneficial vegetables. If protein is not available, eat plenty of beneficial veggies. This has served me well. :)

Isn't tomato neutral for O's ?

You could cook beef and veal as we do in Italy : very slow in the oven.
You put a  a joint of beef with some onions, carrots, celery, sweet potatoes, ghee or olive oil and salt tin a large casserole the lid on, in your oven at a very low temperature ( 120° celsius degrees) and you forgot it for 3 hours.
It's delicious, tasty and very soft. You can stock it for 3/4 day in fridge, and put some mayonnaise on if you want to eat it cold with green salad.

Yes, it is Daniela, but if you have inflammatory issues (arthritis) it is best to stay away from them as it is in the nightshade category along with potatoes, bell peppers and eggplant.

Homemade mayonnaise right...if not, watch for any avoids. ;)

You may want to include a diverse range of neutral and beneficial starchy vegetables into your meal plans to substitute for the allergic food items that are bothersome for you.

If you have a slow cooker and are up for eating some beef, you could try a pot roast. It's really simple. Put some washed baby carrots or chopped parsnips in the bottom of the slow cooker, and add some onion slices. I usually put in a couple of garlic cloves. Add in about a half cup of beef broth or stock and put the pot roast on top. (If you have some burgundy or merlot in the fridge, add a little to the stock--it gives your au jus gravy a wonderful rich taste.) Chuck roast is the best kind of cut to start with--you have to work really hard to ruin a chuck roast! :) Sprinkle the top of the roast with a pinch of sea salt if you like, and lay some fresh thyme sprigs over the meat (or sprinkle some dried thyme over the meat, about a half teaspoon or so). A clove or two of garlic is nice too--nothing like a good garlicky pot roast to cure whatever ails an O! :)

Now, if you are home during the day when the roast is cooking, start it off on the HIGH setting for an hour, then turn down to LOW and let cook for 6 hours or so. If you will be away all day, just use the LOW setting and cook for 6-8 hours. When you come home you've got instant dinner and plenty of leftovers! Add some sauteed spinach or kale, serve up with the au jus gravy, and bob's yer uncle :)

Sure !
Put an egg, yolk and white, room temp. in the mixer bowl.
Add a good pinch of salt, 1 tsp of english mustard and start mixing slow speed.
After 30 sec. add a good quality organic olive oil (NOT exatra vergin oil, it's too strong), veeery slowly, and when mayo begin be tick, you can go faster. So put 1 lemon juice and 1 tbsp apple vinegar. Add about 2/2,5 dl olive oil per egg.
You can now put in fridge for 3 days max.
You can also add at the end some chopped flat persil, garlic, basil, chillies or, the best, you can mix some canned tuna and capers, it's nice on fish or even on meat and hard boiled eggs.
I would give you also the "rouille" recipe, it's a french sauce : put a pinch of safran in 1 tbsp hot water, then in a mortar crush an half garlic, 1 hot chilly and 2 pinches sea salt with the pestle and add 1 egg yolk. Always with the pestle mix in 1 dl extra vergin olive oil, when thicks, put the safron and hot water in. At the and add 1 tbsp vinegar.
Put it on bruschetta (grilled bread) and if it's not an avoid, some gruyère
Eat with a fish or pumpikin soup.
