Wow, lots of ideas! Thanks! I think I was so overwhelmed with the list of everything she said no too and everything else I could think of was unhealthy I got really frustrated really quickly. I'll definitely give some of these a try! :)

No go on the domperidone yet :( We're still working on it.

You might try blenderizing some of the food you want to try (thin them with either broth, milk, water or juice), or even baby foods can give you some variety before going from liquids straight to solid foods. You can find baby food in a good variety of flavors and without a lot of additives, preservatives and other junk.

For protein I'm using the Syntrax whey protein drinks. You can mix them with water, milk or juice and they come in some great flavors. They taste a lot better than boost/ensure!

Can you eat cream of wheat? Grits? Jello? I know this is going to be hard, but hang in there!

Have you tried Domeperidone yet? I am finally able to eat soft-scrambled eggs because I'm using it. It's worth a try.

Life's an adventure ... take it one step at a time and don't underestimate yourself! You're capable of more than you think you are! How do I know this? You're still here aren't you? That means you haven't given up!

What about Egg Beaters? Maybe with mozzerella cheese or other white cheese? Low fat string cheese works well for me. Toasted white bread with low fat flavored cream cheese? Gogurt? What about puddings? Croissants? Noodle soups with just the broth and noodles? White rice made with broth? Peanut butter captain crunch (only kind of peanut buttery). Hopefully one of those suggestions will work?

Alright I've been on liquid meals like ensure/boost etc for about a month and we're going to try going back to regular meals but no fruits, vegetables, fiber/complex carbs, lean meats, fish, potatoes, peanut butter, or nuts.

Anyone have suggestions for anything left I can have that's healthy?

There's a low carb/high protein yogurt and a high protein powerbar I tolerate well but other than those everything else I can think of isn't "healthy".
