I’ve hard time to create high calories meals.
I cannot handle too big meals at one sitting as well( due to my digestion which is in healing proccess), and I cannot eat gluten so far, and no PUFA( no fried food in vegetable oils).
So basically I would like to create healthy meals high calories meals.
I want to gain weight.
Any ideas and sugesstion are welcome.
Thank you,June 3, 2016 at 7:37 pm #17851
I love to fry potatoes in coconut oil, then add grated cheese and maybe some sausage. No PUFAs, high in calories, and delicious. :)August 5, 2016 at 3:43 pm #17866positivelyParticipant
Thanks Potato :)
What cheese and how much?August 5, 2016 at 4:03 pm #17867
As much cheese as I can stand. :) I usually use either cheddar or pepper jack, depending on my mood.August 15, 2016 at 1:59 pm #17869
Fettuccine Alfredo (made with heavy cream) and beef stroganoff (made with full fat sour cream) using gluten free noodles if you can’t tolerate gluten yet are both filling meals. This company makes the best replacement for regular egg noodles that I’ve found so far-August 16, 2016 at 11:02 pm #17870
Yummy! I have discovered that I can’t really tolerate any starches, except for potatoes occasionally, so I will need to use zucchini noodles. Thanks!August 17, 2016 at 3:58 pm #17871
You’re welcome Potato. I tried and tried eating gluten again but it didn’t work out in the end. I kept getting these very painful rashes and finally went to the dermatologist because the pain would wake me up at night and it was determined that I have dermatitis herpetiformis which is caused by gluten. I was sad that I had to go back to gluten free because I did that during ED but this time around it has been much better. I’ve found replacements for everything including ramen noodles believe it or not.
I understand we need to challenge ourselves and branch out in our eating but I honestly think I did more harm than good forcing myself to eat gluten when there were clear signs that it didn’t agree with me. I read on youreatopia that it can sometimes take the digestive system years to fully heal. I guess the only option is to find foods we tolerate well and be sure to keep eating.
I hope you enjoy those dishes with the zucchini noodles! Do you make them yourself from fresh zucchini?
Another filling dish I like is shepherd’s pie.August 17, 2016 at 4:26 pm #17872
I am concerned about getting too restrictive with my diet, so I keep trying things after a while, to see if it has improved. I feel like I am pretty balanced now in choosing food based on a desire to truly nourish myself, so it’s just a matter of doing what works. Thanks for the input! I don’t even cook the zucchini noodles; I just use them fresh and raw most of the time. I recently had some zucchini noodles with homemade pesto, grated cheese, and some leftover cooked chicken. It was really good!August 18, 2016 at 4:55 pm #17873
Yum Potato. That sounds delicious. I’m going to have to try your zucchini noodles. I’ve actually started enjoying more vegetables again lately.
