Dietary Shift

Out of the hospital long enough to look in on 4:45 Mass, hit the grocery store and make dinner for the young miss and myself.

How much of this food will the patient* be able to consume upon her return home? Let’s see …

  • Ground pork grilled with paprika, corander, and cumin. (non-red meats are approved)
  • Cherry peppers. (probably not–no seeds allowed)
  • Basmati rice mix with corn, garlic, turmeric, pepper, and olive oil. (white rice okay)

For years, I’ve been trying to create meals with more fiber for my family. Now I’m told that a low fiber diet will be needed for awhile.

* A family member slightly alarmed that I’ve facebooked about the operation and recovery (and that people around the world are sending good wishes) doesn’t wish to be splashed all over the internet. Said family member shall go unnamed on this blog.
