I’m stubborn as can be, so when I first was given the ok to eat solid foods, I was crazy ambitious, especially considering my complete lack of energy. I was determined to make fried green tomatoes gastroparesis-friendly; I tested fate with small bites of steak.
Guess who ended up right back on a liquid diet?
Considering what I know now, I actually feel lucky I didn’t end up right back in the hospital.
I love food. Food to be me is interesting, exciting, and one of the most basic but enjoyable pleasures life can offer.
And then suddenly, out of no where, I was stuck on a liquid diet (and then, later, a very restricted one). I was determined to find or come up with recipes for gastroparesis that could still be delicious, full of flavor, and exciting, even if it all had to go into a blender.
I’m excited about eating again, which I need to be, considering the general lack of appetite we all know about. I’ve come up with a laundry list of recipes for gastroparesis diets that I’m looking forward to sharing.
The best part: these recipes are delicious whether you have gastroparesis or not, so your family and friends will love them, too.
