    Recipe ideas for gastritis

    Thu Jan 03, 2013 4:24 pm Groupie
    My husband is in the midst of a 10 day bland diet for gastritis that is not associated with h. pylori. He is also coughing up a storm foollowing a terrible sore throat.

    I am look for ideas that align with a diet for gastritis. Seems everything I know how to do uses at least one of the ingedients that is forbidden.

    Here is the list of things to avoid:
    •Fatty dairy foods, such as whipped cream or high-fat ice cream
    •Strong cheeses, such as bleu or Roquefort
    •Raw vegetables
    •Vegetables that make you gassy, such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, green peppers, and corn
    •Fresh berries and other fresh fruit
    •Dried fruit
    •Whole-grain or bran cereals
    •Whole-grain breads, crackers, or pasta
    •Pickles, sauerkraut, and similar foods
    •Spices, such as hot pepper and garlic
    •Foods with a lot of sugar or honey in them
    •Seeds and nuts
    •Highly seasoned cured or smoked meats and fish
    •Fried foods

    Citrus and chocolate were also on his doctor's list and I have seen onions and the list, as well.

    So, please share your most creative and flavorful recipes and modifications that might help us. Even ideas that aren't that flavorful would be great.

    PaNik, my sister was just recently told she has gastritis and all they told her to stay away from was spicey foods. Appears that any meat would be OK, as long as you don't add a lot of spices to it. You could bake a pork or beef roast and fix mashed potoatoes, Bake fish or chicken and just pick out some side dishes that he is allowed.

    Thanks for stopping by and stop by any time, maybe someone else will come along with recipes but all that comes to my mind is to bake food with a little salt and pepper (if allowed) for flavor. Mac and Cheese would also be bland enough for him.

    Gosh, that's a challenge - double check on the onions, they would help improve the flavor if don't have to omit them.

    Green Split Pea and Bacon Soup - omit bacon
    Roasted Beet and Potato Soup - use low fat evaporated milk
    Mushroom and Barley Soup (Belarus)
    Moldovan Cream of Potato Soup
    Apple Butternut Squash Soup
    Beef, Barley, and Mushroom Soup - omit garlic
    Cauliflower-Cheddar Soup - omit garlic and mustard
    Scandinavian Chicken Soup
    Rapido Meatball Soup - omit garlic, if Parmesan is considered strong, use mozarella or monterey jack
    Zuppa Di Porcini (Porcini Mushrooms Soup) - same issue with parmesan - I think this would be good without it
    Cream of Mushroom Soup- for Grown-Ups!
    "Cream" of Spinach Soup
    Andersen's Split Pea Soup (Crock Pot Version) Copycat
    Herb Crusted Fish Fillets - I think this could be just baked, omit pine nuts
    Creamy Fish and Mushroom Pie

    gosh it is hard to avoid all that stuff. The spices can be omitted, and it will be bland, a bit boring, but hopefully appropriate and not a problem

    Paul Harvey's Wild Rice Soup
    Chinese Egg Flower Soup (Ww)
    Chinese Egg Flower Soup (Ww)
    Creamy Breakfast Oatmeal (Rice Cooker) omit dried fruit
    Chicken and Dumplings for Two
    Lithuanian Mixed Vegetable Salad (Darzoviu Misraine)
    Brazilian Cheese Puffs - Pao De Queijo (Gluten Free)
    Mushroom Sauce for Pasta (Low-Sodium)
    Turkey Meatballs With Cheese and Apple (Slow Cooker, Gluten-Free omit cranberries and no-salt seasoning
    Turkey Croquettes omit lemon juice
    Kheer - Indian Rice Pudding (Slow Cooker)

    Thank you for putting so much effort into your reply! My juices are flowing looking at the list. The ideas are perfect for the rest of the bland diet and I'll be trying many of them after, as well!

    Thanks again,

    You made our weekend! Thank you again and again! My husband chose the moldovan potato soup and the turkey meatballs with apple. I made the soup with one quart of veggie broth to sub for some of the onion flavor and other seasonings. It turned out brown, but was still perfect as it was.

    For the meatballs, I only used salt with a dash of onion, garlic, and pepper and they were moist, slightly browned, and delicious. I have no idea where all of the yumminess came from, but I am happy to say that the "bland" diet ends this evening, but it has been anything but bland. I don't think the small touches of flavor that I added hurt his belly at all.

    I think I will make the soup and meatballs again before reviewing them, but they were absolutely worth 5 stars just as they were. I can't wait to keep working through the list.
