gout "meat" suggestions
 
I really, really need tasty suggestions for DM ....

she can't have red meat, poultry, and only some fish (no shell fish either)


does anyone know if ostrich is low fat?


yummy tofu recipes that taste like meat?


the only way DM can stand Boca "burger" is if its made into chili/pasta

... oh yeah ... and she has to limit her dried beans (so no lentil soup)

What are you going for? :confused: Protein? Or just main course entrees?


What about dairy based foods such as stuffed shells or yogurts? Eggs? What about using the veggie burger patties in lasagna?

My DH has gout...we tend to have pasta's alot...and in place of meat he is able to eat mushrooms so we add those to the sauce...alot of cheese ravioli or tortellini...egg plant parm...as well as in lasagna. The fish we find he can eat no problem is salmon and talpia. Now I have made fish tacos, fish for the meat in stir fry, fish enchiladas, fish burritos, for a main dish alternative we do stuffed acorn squash... we have been able to have stew with beef if the beef was grilled well done...and then cooked forever the next day to get tender again. DH read that cooking the meat well done assists in taking some of the purine count out of the food. For an entire pot of stew I only used one sirloin steak so the serving of beef is low but you still feel like you get beef. I began looking at vegetarian diet meals to help us out. Hope this helps alittle. Good luck. a Gout diet is challenging. I have read that tart red cherries (20) daily assist a gout patient in lowering purines in the body. When he wants a burger-ish meal we can do salmon burgers or portabelle mushrooms.

thanks.... mom knows about cherries (thank you for sharing, I'm glad to hear some positive things)

kaykay - I'm looking for protein ... mom is really missing meat (I'm also looking to alternatives for Turkey day)


we're both a little :( because there is so much she has to watch for in food (has heart issues, blood sugar issues, and now gout .... plus she's under weight)

Is she under the care of a hospital (or specialist) nutritionist? - Sounds like she really needs that professional advise and monitoring.

Re: gout "meat" suggestions
 
I agree, but I don't think she's been able to see someone who knows about gout. :( When she's asked various doctors, etc... according to mom the responses have been some variation of "there's a diet for gout?"

Mayo clinic handouts/on-line articles have been more useful.


Could you ask a dietitian there if ostrich is allowed? Well, is ostrich meat common? (I've had ostrich before, but people here look at me like I'm nuts. I'm going to try several calling several dietitians next week - but as ostrich isn't common, I doubt they'll know)

Ostrich meat here is really expensive. :( Are you sure your mom likes it?

Re: gout "meat" suggestions
 
I think it has to be part of an over-all diet plan? That was the only reason i'm suggesting a nutritionist is because they will be able to make sure it all fits right.

Professional nutritionists aren't cheap, but are trained to look at diets for problems like this. If you ring them, would it be worth asking if they are will to take on a new client? :)

Excellent idea, Mrs. X. Many insurance plans cover nutritionists and most of the doctor's offices around here have one on staff.
