What I am Traveling Through...Suggestion
s For Food Flavorings

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

OKay, here is what I am currently traveling through:
Doc put me on a 5mg blood pressure med. For a month I took them. Since then I have had severe diarrhea, throwing up and loss of appetite. At first they said I had a virus, gave me nausea med and told me to take Imodium. After a month of this I went back to the doctor. My Doc not available so the other Doc and my Doc talked and decided I was having a reaction to the BP med. (I have lost 13 lbs from this) (Not mad about the weight loss).

So now I am off BP med for a week and will start a new 2 1/2 mg one next Monday.

Doc says a soft diet with no salt or butter!!!

There is no way I could eat grits without salt or margarine. I remember I had an ulcer 30 years back and I was finally allowed to have a baked potato with nothing but some water on it. That was a good potato.

The soft diet is temporary, and so is the no salt and butter. I use very little salt normally and I don't use much margarine anyway. Also, I NEVER fry any foods.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to flavor my food? (Allergic to cheese).
Hopefully I can get some good suggestions that I can keep for my daily meals.

Blessings to all.

    Try butter buds, taste like butter but in powder form, has same flavor but not the fat. It's in the spice area of the grocery store.
