We would agree that speaking with a dietitian would be helpful if your dad didn't already receive some education and information regarding foods to limit or avoid. If you do have a list of foods -- you can use SparkRecipes to look for the foods he should be eating and find recipes there.

I would agree about the Dietician. They are probably going to be your best resource!

Also ask his doctor for a referrel to a dietician(not nutritionist) for a diet specific to his needs

Hello! We found out last summer that my dad had blood clots in his lungs, and now he's on a very strict diet. It's a low sodium healthy diet, but he also has to be careful about his vitamin k. If he has anything with vitamin k, he has to have it a couple days in a row. As an example of how strict this diet is, he can only have a couple slices of turkey a day. He can't have certain lettuces, either. It's been really hard trying to come up with decent recipes to make so that it doesn't become tedious, and my parents are already starting to stray from the diet.

Anyone out there have any suggestions or recipes that I can make to help my dad stick to his diet? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
