Low everything diet

Preparing a meal which is low in salt, sugar, cholesterol, protein can be mind buggling. My father-in-law recently lost his kidney that is why he observes a low protein and low salt diet. He is also diabetic that is why no sugar for him. He also has cardio-vascular problem that is why no fats for him too.

The taste of his food is close to tasteless and he only eats vegetables, fish and chicken sometimes.

He is getting used to it. He loves “utan bisaya” vegetable stew. We also served fish tinola. He already adjusted to his diet and sometimes he really wanted to taste the regular food especially if mama is not around.

One special discovery Papa had is the ampalaya (bitter melon)-carrot juice.

Here are the ingredients:

2 cups sliced ampalaya
2 cups diced carrots
1 cup water
artificial sugar and low fat milk to taste

mixed all the ingredients in an osterizer and liquify it for about 5 minutes or until all the chunks are liquified.
