Tummy Troubles

My recent post on Cooking Kama Sutras:

Since this is a cooking and thus food based blog, I shall spare the details. But be warned that my future recipes, at least for the next month, will be citrus free. This includes no tomatoes, limes, lemons, onions (I can only have them if they are well cooked), and I'm also supposed to avoid chocolate and caffeine...hah! One list at at time folks.

I must say I didn't realize that tomatoes are in practically every pre-cooked fast-food at the grocery store so this will be a challenge. This leaves out most foods where I get my natural vitamin C plus most Mexican and Italian dishes - my favorite kinds! Alas, I will be challenged in my tiny-kitchen to come up with non-tummy-abrasive dishes that are still tasty.

Stay tuned!

I've also begun to realize that I can't have heavily tomato-based things for dinner. Awful heart burn. I never used to have it, but now I do. Go figure. I could blame the kids but something tells me I'd be facing it about now even without them ... sigh. I love chili, pizza, spaghetti, etc. ...

I'm sorry your having tummy troubles.
Try looking at asian recipes, or soy or bean based recipes. Jen and I just found a couple of lentil dishes that were wonderful. I will see if I can dig up the recipes for you. Take care.
