Recipes, Food Tips, Healthy Eating & More

Posted by Debbra Williams, Alumna Mentor @debbraw, Feb 22, 2019

Some of the members of the Gratitude Discussion Group were interested in having a place to share recipes and food ideas. I’m hoping that we can use this thread as a place to have that kind of discussion. I’d love to hear your ideas for quick meals, comfort food, healthy snacks, and more.

Personally, I’ve just been through a bad reaction to one of my medications that left me with a very queasy stomach. I would love to hear ideas – or recipes – that might be used when you need to get something on your stomach, but don’t want to overdo it.

Hopefully, this thread will even be a place where we can share recipes for special treats and yummy rewards. It doesn’t always have to be healthy!

I’d love to hear from members who have been part of other discussions AND from new members who have good ideas, recipes and food tips to share. I’m excited to see who might start us off here with an awesome food suggestion!

Ah, St. Patrick's Day! A great day for all those calorie and sodium laden foods. Corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, Irish cream. All things not renal diet friendly, so off my menu. Perhaps chicken for dinner. Apple with red pepper hummus for breakfast, yummy!

@gingerw There are so many holidays to celebrate and they mostly involve indulgence of some kind. I did bake sugar cookies in the shape of shamrocks with a powdered sugar glaze and green sprinkles. The neighbors were thrilled as no one does anything much for St. Patrick’s Day. I arrived with cookies and placed smiles on faces. A nice way to celebrate an honored saint.

@parus I will be doing the same thing later this week when my daughter and her husband visit. She LOVES my sugar cookies. Of course it makes a lot so I will bring some across the street to some great neighbors. They have three children, and are such a nice family.

Hey y’all, I made cauliflower pizza crust. Loved it and will do thus again. I purchased a 1 lb bag already riced, cooked it in the bag, mixed in grated Parmesan cheese and an egg. Add
Toppings of your choice after baking the crust and back in the oven.
This crust it easier than regular pizza dough (unless you buy it made). I will do this again!!

@parus sou d's yummy What temp and how long did you leave in oven ?

REPLY

@lioness 400 degrees for 20 minutes. You bake the crust first then add toppings. And return to oven for 10. I think I used the one on wholesomeyum.com

Well I’m off to the store to pay for my groceries I got Fri afternoon. I got really dizzy, lost my vision and collapsed in a heap. Oh the joy of shopping. Probably passed out thinking of all things that needed cooked. Hope they still have my junk.
