Recipes, Food Tips, Healthy Eating & More
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!

I always have canned salmon in the pantry. I use it tossed over salad or as salmon salad with plenty of seasoning and have made salmon patties with one can. You can get 2 patties from one can but you need a filler like some Panko bread crumbs to keep it together. They are okay but the best way to make patties is to use fresh salmon….lots of recipes out there. My favorite way is to take half an avocado, peel the skin off, season the avocado and stuff it with salmon salad.
I adore sardines…could eat an entire can. Always check the brands to see the source.
“I adore sardines”
NATURALLY, just like any other disgusting thing, guts and all. Well you grossed me out AGAIN. You certainly can have my share but why not leave them for the seals, dolphins, whales, penguins & Birdies? They have to eat too!!!
@jakedduck1 🤣 My thoughts exactly, Jake! @imallears is so very brave in the culinary field. I like the taste of sardines, but not the idea of eating the entire thing! Haven't tried them for years. A Cuban friend in Arizona ate them every day, marinated in canned tomatoes. I know they're high on nutrition, but…
@jakedduck1 Ooh, that looks delicious! I'll have to check it out, although is it ok for Diabetics, Jake? What's the sugar content, if you don't mind?
@mockingbird I've read that canned salmon is actually better nutritionally than fresh, I believe because of the calcium content in "bone in".
Doesn’t look to me like it would be the best thing for someone with diabetes to eat but then I am far from knowledgeable on diabetes.
here’s a picture of the nutrition facts.
@imallers I have a soup recipe for salmon. In it add little water cook till boiling .Remove from heat add milk/cream to it butter then season if needed heat up again
Oooh – I'm with Jake in this camp. Will eat salmon patties if well-filled with breadcrumbs, egg, etc – a relic from meatless Fridays, but sardines put me off completely – along with oysters. I just have to get my nutrition a different way. Like pickled herring – in brine, mustard or cream sauce with lots of onion…
@sueinmn Yuk pickled herring I can't do any of these that Fl.Mary eats I do like the salmon patties, and 🍲 My husband liked the sardines mustared
I've never purchased salmon in a can, I'll have to try some of these recipe ideas. I eat salmon filets , from a frozen bag, delivered to my home. I thaw them and heat them for just a few minutes with lemon and dill.
