Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Creamy Chicken Casserole

Creamy Chicken Casserole3__NoSugarlessGum

I gave up dairy a while ago for my health (except occasionally some butter) and it has been really hard!  It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve had a good creamy recipe.  This one really satisfies that craving.  I was worried it might be a little bland, but I think it was just the colors psyching me out.  It was actually really flavorful!  This recipe may take a bit of planning if you don’t have all the ingredients on hand, so make sure you have enough time.  It’s a great recipe to make early on and cook later too.

Hi, everyone!  I hope you had a lovely holiday season!  I know it’s tough resisting all the goodies this time of year (or tough dealing with the aftermath of eating said goodies, depending on what route you choose!).

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Ginger Chicken Soup with Rainbow Carrots

Ginger Chicken Soup with Rainbow Carrots__No Sugarless Gum

Since being diagnosed with SIBO, this has become one of my favorite meals.  It’s packed with delicious chicken, vegetables, healing ginger and turmeric.  The shredded chicken helps trick my brain into thinking there’s some sort of noodle situation happening, and the vegetables are well cooked for easy digestion!

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: The Cheapest Soup For Lunch All Week

Cheapest Soup2__No Sugarless Gum

When it comes to my lunch every week, I like it simple and easy.  Thankfully what I’ve come up with is delicious and good for you too!  I pair up my romaine salad with an easy-to-make soup that costs very little money and makes enough for the whole week.  What you need to find to make this soup is the package of chicken parts that’s put together after all the “good meat” has been taken out.  You’ll probably have to go to a co-op or a butcher to find it, but you can pick up a bunch and put them in the freezer if it’s not a convenient trip.  And the best part is they usually cost under $4!  What more could you want?!

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Gut-Healing Bone Broth

Gut-Healing Bone Broth3__No Sugarless Gum

It has begun!  Yet another new diet!

I’m three days into my low-FODMAP autoimmune Paleo diet.  Ugh.  Right now I must be in withdrawal because I’m just a wee bit cranky and dreaming about peanut M&Ms.

I was going to go more in-depth today but I sliced my thumb open cutting sweet potato french fries and it hurts to type, so I’ll be brief.

What better way to start off a brand new diet to heal my gut than with a recipe for gut-healing bone broth?!  The purposes of this broth is to break down all the bones you throw into it so that the gelatin (among other things) is released, which is very very healing.  Gelatin can help improve joint pain and even skin elasticity!  It also inhibits infection, fights inflammation, and (very importantly) supports digestion.

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Pepper-Stuffed Bacon-Wrapped Chicken

Don’t let this picture turn you off to this recipe.  I had forgotten to take a picture when I first made this so all I had to use was my leftover reject chicken.  Still delicious though. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Easy Recipes: Homemade Ramen

Homemade Ramen3__No Sugarless Gum

I absolutely love chicken ramen.  And I don’t mean the authentic stuff, I mean the crappy 50¢ stuff you eat every day in college.  That little foil package though, sadly, is filled with things I can no longer eat, so I wanted to try to make something close to it.

For this to be an easy recipe, you need to have your chicken carcass stock and chicken already made.  Even better would be just purchasing some, but it’s hard to find stock/broth without garlic and onions. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Hot Chicken Salad

Hot Chicken Salad3__No Sugarless Gum

When I got married my grandmother–who is a stellar cook–gave me a cookbook she had filled with many of her recipes.  It’s a wonderful gift and I will treasure it forever, but as I flipped through it I began to realize there weren’t any recipes I could have!  Very depressing. Continue reading

You know that feeling you get when you realize you have nothing you want for dinner?  And you get all depressed and even kind of dread when the time to eat rolls around, knowing you’ll either have to choose something lame or starve?  This recipe is the cure!!!  I’ve been eating these for the past 3 weeks and loving it.

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Chicken Pizza with White Sauce

Chicken Pizza with White Sauce2__No Sugarless Gum

Amazing?  Life changing?  Unbelievable?

It’s hard to decide on the right way to describe this pizza and why choose?  I think all of the above options are fitting.

This was one I didn’t have a lot of faith in.  I tried gluten-free pizza before at a nice restaurant (when I thought I just needed to avoid gluten) and after a few bites, I wanted to cry.  It was just gross.

But a few years have passed since then, and after finding success with cinnamon rolls, my courage was renewed.  I combined a recipe for gluten-free pizza crust from Food Network’s website and I used a recipe from The Best Blog Recipes blog as a guide for the toppings. Continue reading
