Before my emergency ileostomy I had several food intolerances. I've been home from the hospital for one month. I find myself eating many of the same meals that I did before the surgery. I'm about to hit the 6 week mark and am skeptical about trying anything I previously stayed away from. This included..dairy, soy, legumes, cruciferous veggies, pitted fruits, pineapple, pork or processed wheat. I just ordered bone broth protein powder 2 days ago in an effort to increase my protein. I'd love to share my recipes and am considering writing a book of them.
My diet is consisting of brown rice pasta, free-range eggs, grass fed beef, ground turkey, steak tips, stew beef, chicken, lamb, salmon, smoked salmon, tuna, sourdough bread, avocado, potatoes, sweet potatoes, canned green beans, carrots canned or frozen, coconut yogurt (plain or lime), coconut water (great hydration), diluted water with pure cranberry or apple juice, Follow Your Heart parmesan, mozzerella, cheddar and mayo. Primal kitchen marinades, cream of wheat, peeled apples, Birch Benders pancake mix, banana, marshmallow fluff, oat milk, cacao powder, chicken stock, vegetable stock, natural applesauce, grape jelly, orange marmalade, olive oil, PAM coconut oil, Earth Balance butter, Violife cream cheese, V8, real maple syrup, organic pizza dough, tomato sauce, bone broth, almond butter, Bob's Red Mill mashed potatoes, Carolina organic rice, cantelope, mandarin oranges (pre-packaged).
These are my go to ingredients. I'm happy to provide recipes for my beef stew, dairy free mac & cheese, dairy free chocolate chip cookies, air fryer chicken thighs/breasts, breakfast ideas, lunch ideas, dairy free potato leek soup, dairy free pizza, pasta w/meat sauce, and more.....
I miss not having fresh veggies and fruits. I miss lettuce, olives, peppers...will try to re-introduced these slowly. I did order some salmon sashimi, egg drop soup and steamed shrimp shumai recently and that went well!!! I love sushi I use coconut aminos in place of soy, read the label first!
I hope that this was helpful to someone!!
