As my name says it, I can not even feel what you all are feeling, but I know what my mother looks like right now after one of the biggest flairups ever.  Finally she is being treated appropriatly, but refuses to believe she has a problem.  I need help to create meals for her.  Her MD is a natural Gastro guy so flour and sugar is strickly forbidden.  ANY suggestions from this point.  SHe is in week 5 of a reintroduction from elimination diet.

Welcome,I am sorry that your mother is having to deal with all of this and your mother is very lucky to have a daughter that cares very much about her.We are all different and what one might be able to eat fruit another one might not be able to.I cannot tolierate any dairy or any typ of fruit and leavy veggis like letuce is a no no for me.Since I can not drink milk I found a product called Dream Rice and se it in placew of milk when I cook as well and it tast pretty good.This can be found in you grocery store in the organic section of the store.The book that teddy told you about I have that book as well and worth checking out.I hope that your mother get's to feeling better,and please do continue to post.

the most popular diets on this site appear to be the maker's diet and the specific carbohydrate diet. both books come with a lot of recipes and tips for how to introduce the diet into your lifestyle. scd has a huge on line resource so i believe you may be able to get some recipes there w/o buying the book. both diets eschew sugar and white flour, so they should fit right in with your doc. another cookbook that may be worth checking out is "nourishing traditions" by sally fallon.
