Running out of recipe
September 25, 2012 12:26pm CST
A week ago, I was diagnosed with a heart ailment and The Doctor advised me to avoid pork,beef and fatty foods, so at the most, I cook fish and vegetables for myself every meal. As days gone by I suddenly realized that I am eating a same recipe over and over again. It is always steamed, grilled or making a fish soup.. Now I've been craving for a fried dishes,burgers, fries. I hope some of you can suggest a different style of cooking my fish and veggies.

You need to get some ideas from Indian and other Asian cooking.Hearty stews are featured prominently on many Indian buffets.Potatoes are very versatile and can be easily made into spicy stews,and wraps can be made with Indian stews and veggies,and with fish too.

I'm sorry for your health ailment..Although your doctor told you to avoid pork, beef, and fatty food..you can still enjoy these food just by cutting back the portion..You can add a little bit of beef or pork on your stir fry..you can experiment with spices or the things you have in your fridge..You can use garlic, onion, tomatoes , and long beans vegetable for example and maybe add a little bit of coconut in it.. You can buy beef just make sure it's lean and cut them into burger size..It's better that way and you're cutting back the amount of fat in it..it's healhier that way..instead of buying them through drive thru in Mcdonalds or wendys..

Hi jaraan, sorry to hear about your heart ailment hope your doing fine right now. Avoiding fatty foods and high sodium will help to your condition, i understand what your going through right, grilling, steaming and fish soup are good for your health and heart. You can still eat fries but make sure to cook it using olive oil and with limitations, burgers in fast food chains are quite fatty and not good for your but you can still eat it in a small amount just to satisfy your cravings or you cam make your own patty for your burger using vegetables like banana blossom, broccoli and cauliflower or using fish meat to make more healthy and fat free. Have a nice day!

It is hard when you start trying to eat healthier for whatever reason, but the good news is that there are things that you can do. Even if you want to eat certain meats then the only thing you need to do is to make sure that you cut off the fat from the meat that you use. If you like frying things then you can use low fat oil, and make sure that you wipe the excess oil off the food before you eat it. You probably don't have to go on a zero fat diet, just a low fat diet, so I am sure that you would be able to enjoy some of the foods that you have in the past.
