Here are examples of what I am eating until i feel ready for more (my cough is better). I get a lot of stuff at Whole Foods and buy gluten free whenever i see it. I am trying to figure out something very low acid to eat along with chicken breast so it's not dry (stuff can be added later but i'm still in bad shape so i'm being careful and sticking to this for now). Maybe this will give you some ideas I'm not an expert! but how much I eat affects me as much as what i eat and i need a looooong time to digest my dinner so i eat super early and don't get into bed unless I feel a lightness in my stomach.


HALF a whole grain bagel with fat free or low fat cottage cheese (I use the lactaid kind)

omelette (1 egg and 2 egg whites) with mushrooms, baby spinach (comes prewashed super easy) or any green veggies you have in the fridge and a light sprinkling of low fat cheddar cheese on top.

Rice/Millet cereal with low fat milk (I use lactaid) or light soy milk (i also drink Rice milk)

Smoothie: Banana, apple (not green) 3 tablespoons of low fat yoghurt, ice

Oatmeal (i like the frozen ancient grains they sell at Whole Foods)

Scrambled Tofu (I can give you recipe)


Gluten and wheat Free bread, just a tiny bit of light Mayo, fresh turkey breast and lettuce.
Should be a small sandwich and if it's not eat half and save half for later.

Green Salad with red bell pepper (just one a week), cucumber, two tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese and 1 tablespoon of vinaigrette

Rice and beans (tip, cook the rice in chicken stock which is allowed for more flavor)

Canned white fish tuna (packed in water) on whole grain pita bread. (should be small)


Wheat free pasta tossed in tablespoon of oil, herbs and salt and fresh wild salmon

Chicken breast with rice (cooked in chicken broth/stock) or baked yam

home made soup: Carrot ginger or mushroom barley and salad

Sushi! Just beware of rolls that have vinegar in them!

Snacks. I know these meals are small (and the smaller the better) so you need to keep going in between. Here are the snacks I eat:

Watermelon or honey dew melon

Celery sprinkled with salt

Saltines or whole grain cracker with honey

Pear, apple (not green) or Banana (all ripe)

popcorn tossed in 1 tablespoonf olive oil and salt

What keeps me going if I'm STILL hungry is warm water with raw honey. It fills me, gets rid of my sweet tooth and it's very soothing.

Gum after meals (sugar free and look for citrus and min flavorings and make sure you don't chew that, if it has sodium bicarbonate even better).

Beverages: ideally alkaline water, watered down pure apple juice, camomile, hot water with honey

This is only for a few weeks and i think the hardest part is not getting full...5 small meals. I miss the feeling of being full! But i have a setback EVERY time i do it!

You would feel more full if you increased your proteins, reducing some of the carbs.

Thanks Sun. I feel like those carbs are necessary to keep me from becoming constipated. Thoughts?

Carbs can be difficult to digest. You are more likely to be less constipated, I think. Try it for a couple of days and you will find out.
