I have tried a soup similar to this in a greek restaurant nearby. I'm so excited to have the recipe, thank you so much! It sounds warm and delicious and soothing to your stomach, to me.

Reposting the recipe I posted in my blog today; this is GP friendly if you can tolerate eggs and chicken.

This is a new recipe I tried over the weekend; it was very good!
I found this recipe at TheLemonBowl.com.

GREEK EGG LEMON SOUP

6 cups low sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup uncooked white rice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 TBSP cornstarch
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 eggs- whisked in small bowl
8 oz. cooked chicken breast, shredded
thinly sliced scallions (optional garnish)

In large bowl, bring chicken broth to a boil. Add rice, salt, and pepper and simmer til rice is tender, about 15 minutes.
Remove 1 cup of the broth from the pot and pour into a medium bowl. Add corn starch and whisk til dissolved. Pour in lemon juice and whisk once more.
To temper the eggs, slowly add the whisked eggs to the broth/cornstarch/lemon juice mixture. Whisk constantly so that the eggs gradually come to temperature. Continue til all of the eggs are fully incorporated.
Pour the warmed egg/broth mixture back into the large soup pot and stir til the mixture begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.

Add shredded chicken and cook til heated through. Check for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
Serve with sliced scallions if you wish.

Makes 4 servings.

CROCK POT APPLESAUCE

I made this yesterday, and it was so yummy and so easy!
I made mine with Granny Smith apples.
I did not have a lemon so I used 3 TBSP lemon juice instead.
4 large apples, skinned, cored, and cut into quarters
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBSP brown sugar
1/4 cup water

Place the apple pieces into crockpot. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir.
Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours. When the apples are super tender, mash with a potato masher or a large fork.

Makes about 4 servings.

I found this recipe on a blog called Crockpot365.

CHICKEN COOKED IN FOIL
This is an easy and flavorful way to bake chicken. It's also easy to cut the recipe down to make just one or two servings. If you leave the garlic out, (which I do because of my gastoparesis), it's a good recipe if you have a delicate stomach. I found this recipe on Food.com

I also cooked my chicken a little longer, 60 minutes instead of 40.

This is the original recipe:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut 4 10 inch squares of heavy-duty foil.
Pour 1 TBSP on each sheet of foil; spread to cover the foil.
Place chicken on foil squares.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Fold and seal foil.
Place foil packs on cookie sheet.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Serve chicken from foil packets.
Be careful when opening; steam is trapped inside.

Looks good. Maybe I should try making it some day. Though I'm not patient, so it will be hard to wait hours for it to cook. haha

I made the Slow Cooker Cream of Chicken and Rice Soup yesterday from Spark Recipes. It was good! I can't tolerate brown rice so I used white, and since I don't like mushrooms, I just added an extra cup of carrots. I also used regular 2% milk, since I didn't realize til it was time to add it that I forgot to buy the evaporated milk last time I was at the store.

Those both sound good!
I like trying different kinds of cheeses for grilled cheese sandwiches too, other than the usual American cheese. I have used bacon bits in grilled cheese sandwiches; something my mom use to do when I was little.

We were talking about Bacon Salt before and I finally was able to get some to try. It is pretty potent and doesn't taste incredibly like bacon alone, but if you mix it in foods you do think you're tasting just a bit of bacon. I've tried it with a few things and it is pretty good. I tried this and really like it:

2 slices bread (whatever type works for you)
1/2 tsp bacon salt (more or less for your taste)
2 slices provolone cheese
4 thin slices of low fat lunchmeat (white turkey is good)

Sprinkle the bacon salt on each slice of bread then cover each slice with the cheese. Pop it in the toaster oven and heat it just until the cheese shines. Pull it out, put 2 slices of lunchmeat on each side and put back in the toaster oven until the cheese is melty but before the bread burns. (Keep an eye on it). Take it out, put it together, and enjoy it. It's along the idea of a ham and cheese and bacon sandwich, but with healthier choices.

There is also Baconnaise Lite, bacon flavored low fat mayo. It is interesting. I found a great use for it that is interesting and easy.

1 small chicken breast, butterflied (slice it horizontally most of the way through so it can flap open like a butterfly, but keep it folded together)
1 tsp baconnaise lite (or try mixing a little bacon salt into light, low fat, or nonfat mayo)
1 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese

Turn on your oven to high broil. Get out your broiling pan and line it with aluminum foil (I fold up the sides to keep the juices in so I don't have to wash the pan every time). Lightly spray the foil with olive oil (the chicken will stick without it) and set in the butterflied chicken breast. Broil it for about 6-7 minutes (depending on the thickness of the meat) and pull it out of the oven. Flip the breast over then let it cool for 1-2 minutes. Using a butter knife, spread the baconnaise inside the slit in the meat then stuff in the cheese. Really stuff it in there to minimize how much it oozes out when cooking. Put it back in the oven for another 5-6 minutes. When it's done take it out of the pan pretty quickly so the cheese stops running out.

I made these for breakfast, and they did not upset my tummy! (Ginger is actually a good remedy for nausea). I used the "Heart Smart" Bisquick in mine instead of the Original. I used the cooking spray on my pancake griddle.
Recipe is from BettyCrocker.com

GINGERBREAD PANCAKES

2 1/2 cups Original Bisquick
1 cup milk
3/4 cup apple butter
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Heat griddle over medium high heat or electric griddle to 375F, grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening.
Stir all ingredients til blended. Spoon batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle.
Cook til edges are dry. Turn; cook until brown.

Makes 18 pancakes.

Today I tried Butternut Squash Rissoto from a GP cook book I have.

I put 1 1/4 cup uncooked rice in my rice cooker with 2 1/2 cups fat free, low sodium chicken broth.

After that was cooked, I heated up a 12 oz. package of frozen, pureed butternut squash in the microwave; I mixed that with the rice along with a dash of salt and pepper, and 6 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese; it was pretty good!

I almost had a "messy" bowl of my snack mix last night. I was sitting with my heating pad on my stomach, and eating a bowl of it, when I noticed some of the peanut butter chips were melted; I had part of the bowl right against the heating pad, lol!

All great ideas!
I would love to see what you come up with for the puppy chow, I have not had that since before I was diagnosed with my GP.

Sounds good. I bet you could even add a little bit of powdered sugar (like 1/4 cup to dust it), or a few drizzles of chocolate sauce to a single serving to make a 'messy' dessert. Or I wonder if you could add a little honey and form it into trail mix bars. As long as what is being added is mainly carbs, it shouldn't slow down the tummy.

You've got me thinking here! Thanks! Lately I've been craving puppy chow (the chex/chocolate/peanut butter/powered sugar dessert) and I wonder if I could make a version of it with some of these ideas... something to think about for this weekend.

Last week I was watching the Hungry Girl cooking show on the Food Network. She made a sweet and salty trail mix with popcorn, which looked good, but of course, with GP, popcorn is a no-no, as is nuts and granola. Well, I experimented and came up with my own version of a sweet and salty mix.

I mixed 2 cups of cocoa puffs cereal (check the labels, the original Cocoa Puffs contain too much fiber for me, but I found some Meijer store brand with no fiber)

About 5-6 cups hulless popcorn

1/2 cup peanut butter baking chips (you could also use Reeces pieces)

It was hard mixing it up, because the the chips and cocoa puffs kept sinking to the bottom of the bowl, and the popcorn stayed on top, but I finally put it in one of those oversized zipper food bags and just shook it. It tasted really good, and totally satisfied my sweet/salty craving.

I found a recipe for some banana muffins that are GP friendly; at least they are for me.
I make mine into mini muffins; a regular size muffin is just a little bit too big for me.
I also used Splenda in place of the sugar in this recipe.

The tough part of GP is that it is different for everyone. Sometimes it is a matter of hit-and-miss; start out with easy to digest foods and/or a liquid only diet, then try a new food and if you have problems a few hours to a day later, you should probably avoid it. If you get several foods you're okay with, then randomly start having flares, start the process again.

Of course, the general rule is avoid foods that are hard to digest: high fiber and high fat foods slow down the digestive system. Be sure to check all food labels - companies are now adding fake fiber to products because one of the big stories right now is how people don't get enough fiber. Fake fiber seems to be even more problematic than natural fiber (some people even have allergic reactions to it). Find information here:

I'm kind of new to having GP and wasnt really given a lot of information by my doctor so I don't know what foods are 'GP friendly' and what foods aren't. But some of these recipes sound really tasty and I am looking forward to giving them a try. Also I would definitely visit your website if you made one for recipes. I think its an awesome idea!

HI!
I posted a blog about 2 weeks ago w/ smoothie & shake recipes from my nutritionist.
Some of them are really yummy :)
Check them out if you're in the mood or if you need to switch to liquids during a flare.

Here is a Spark recipe for a chicken soup with pasta, made in the crock pot, that I found to be GP friendly; I have made it twice so far. I leave the celery and onion out of mine, and I use orzo for the pasta. recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai

Potato Pizza

I made this for lunch today, it's friendly both for my GP and my Gerd. I got the idea from a similar recipe I found in an acid reflux cookbook.

Brush olive oil on a 7" prebaked pizza crust. Top with diced cooked potatoes. Sprinkle with a little Italian seasoning and top with shredded mozzerella cheese. Bake at 400F about 8 minutes. Makes 2 servings, 1/2 pizza each.

I think onions would be good on this too if you can tolerate them.

Very simple dessert recipe - Ice Cream Sandwich

graham crackers
fat free cool whip

Split 1 large graham cracker into 2 squares. Spread 1-2 tbsp cool whip on 1 square and top with the other. Freeze until cool whip hardens and enjoy.

Can't get much easier than this. emoticon

NO-TOMATO PIZZA

This recipe is from the book Tell Me What to Eat If I Have Acid Reflux by Elaine Magee.
I made this for lunch today and it was very good! Also, the ingredients are all ones I can tolerate with both my acid reflux and gastroparesis.

I found Hidden Valley Ranch mix which comes in a jar, very handy if you need to use only a little bit at a time vs. a whole packet.
I topped mine with cooked lean ground beef and peeled and sliced zucchini.

1 small packaged (ready to bake) pizza crust (5.5oz.) such as Boboli or another brand.

2 TBSP fat free or light sour cream blended with 1/2 tsp. Hidden Valley Ranch Dip powder

1/2 cup grated reduced fat cheese (mozzarella, sharp cheddar, Jack, or a blend)

1/2 cup of pizza toppings you know you can tolerate

Preheat oven to 400°F
Place pizza crust on cookie sheet. Spread ranch sauce evenly over crust. Top evenly with grated cheese then the toppings of your choice.
Bake 8-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust lightly browned. Cut pizza in half.

Makes 2 servings, 1/2 a small pizza each.

That sounds good! I printed it out and plan to give it a try one of these days.

Being a foodie with GP stinks, but I am starting to come up with food solutions that are both tasty and digestible. I'm thinking of putting together a website, but I'd love more recipes to include!

Here's one I made last night:

Carrot, Fennel & Leek soup
(note -- fennel is not only tasty, but it is a known digestive aid as well!)

1 lb carrots
1 fennel bulb
1 large leek (1-1.5 inch diameter)
1 can chicken broth
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp salt

-Chop carrots, fennel, and leek into ~1/2 inch pieces
-Heat olive oil over medium heat, add veggies and salt, stir
-Cover, sweat for 7-10 minutes or until fennel and leek become semi-translucent and water is noticeably coming out of the veggies
-add chicken broth
-let simmer for 30-45 minutes or until veggies are nice and soft
-puree with a blender (you might want to let it cool a bit first!)

Yield: ~4 cups

"Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your thoughts, unguarded.
But once mastered,
No one can help you as much."
-The Dhammapada
