I have found that the IBS recipes take such a long time and I have trouble keeping up with all the ingredients because there alot that I don't have.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to quickly stock my cupboards with new ingredients? Also - any quick meal ideas? (IE: Thyme, and those types of ingredients - because I think soon I will have tons of these little ingredients and not use them very often)

I work two jobs and don't get home until later and my husband only knows how to make hamburger helper or fried eggs and bacon lol.

Any suggestions would help...I just find it so difficult to experiment with new meal ideas because I find these meals in the cookbook to take so long and because I don't want to find something else to make if it doesn't turn out lol.

I am 24 years old and have never really had to cook meals before because I was always able to buy the quick meals.

Quick easy meals I like - baked potatoes (microwave or stick 'em in the oven and forget them for an hour), pasta ( 10 minutes to cook or 2 minutes in the microwave if you can get the pre-cooked packs), potato gnocchi with a tin of tuna and a quick soy milk sauce thickened with cornstarch.
Check out previous posts - perhaps some stuff you could experiment with on the weekend then get your hubby to reheat.

Do you have Heather's book "The First Year"? There is a section in there about re-stocking your shelves. It's a wonder!!

I have the book on order, but they still haven't called me that it's in...I have the IBS Cookbook. I will have to call the people there and see what's up because that will be so helpful.

Thank you,

Hopefully you get the book soon. I ordered mine from Heather's website and it arrived very quickly. If you've ordered it from a bookstore, keep calling them. You never know - it may be in a pile somewhere with your name on it!!

Anyway, when you do get it, as I said before, the re-stocking your shelves section is very helpful. I took my book to the grocery store and stocked up (I didn't even need a list as Heather already made it for me in the book!) My menu options varied immensely since I did this. (plain old oatmeal really isn't all that exciting after a while - although necessary during a flare-up!!)

Hopefully this helps and happy shopping!

I love this recipe. It came from Quick Cooking. I only had to substitute ground turkey for the ground beef. You can put all the other ingrediants in a bag, spices in a plastic bag and store it in the cupboard and then just get it out with the meat and you will have dinner in about 30 min.

1 Pound of ground turkey
2 cans (14-1/2 oz) stewed tomatoes
1/4 cup dried onion (I usually use reg. onions and cook with turkey)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni

In a skillet, brown turkey; drain. Add tomatoes and seasonings: bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 min. Uncover; simmer until macaroni is tender and sauce it thickend. Makes 4 servings.

That sounds wonderful - my gosh - my mouth is watering. I will have to give it a try - I have printed it off.

Where do you get ground turkey anyways - I go to a supermarket and have not been able to find it in the meat aisle. Can you tell me what it looks like.

That and soy products. I have alot of trouble finding those. I can find soy milk, but as for the cheese and creams and everything. NO WAY!

Thanks

I don't know if I have ever seen them before, I really have to start taking more time to go grocery shopping and look for these new items.

I go with my husband and all he does is whine about how long I taking in the aisle or else he takes off and I have to spend the next 10 minutes hunting for him (I usually find him in the junk food aisle carrying diet coke and chips - ironic in itself LOL)

Heidi - My Mom (bless her soul) used to make this for us when we were kids (a very long time ago, it was) and called it Creamette Ravioli (because she used Creamette's elbow macaroni and I think she got the recipe from one of the boxes). But she used ground beef way, way back then. They didn't have ground turkey in the old days. Us kids, and my Dad too, just loved it.

There have been a lot of past posts about this - it's a brand in Canada, and seems to be fairly widely available (and people like it). Might do a board search for the brand to find those threads.

Also, check your grocery store in the produce section, not the dairy section. For some reason they hide the soy cheese by the tofu and bean sprouts.

Lana Marie - ground turkey looks like ground beef, just much lighter in color.

The soy cheeses are in the coolers with the milk products. They usually are by themselves and all together. Everything from soy sour cream to soy cheese, to soy yogurt. If the store doesn't have ground turkey, maybe they have turkey breasts or chicken breasts that they can grind for you minus the skin and bones, of course!

You can get them to do that for you? Grind while you wait?

Because I have not been able to find that. Is there anyway I could do that at home and then re-freeze the chicken breasts?

Also - are the any Canadian's here who shop at Superstore. I used to be a Safeway girl all the way, but they just don't seem to have the selection that Superstore does. I am just wondering because then maybe you others can let me know if you have found these types of things there.

Lana Marie - buy a slow cooker/crock pot and search this forum for slow cooker/crock pot recipes. It basically is just dumping everything in the crockpot in the morning before work, turning it on, and coming home to a cooked meal.

I have a slow cooker, but for some reason it makes the food taste like plastic. We got it as a wedding gift and have only used it twice because it gives our food a funny taste.

I have yet to find anything to take away the taste. I tried cooking just vinegar and water all day in it. Hoping it would cure it or something, but it never helped.

Lana Marie - yes, they should do that while you wait. Or you can do it at home.

Re: Freezing - the rule of thumb is you can freeze meats once when they're raw and then again after they're cooked. I wouldn't freeze any meats twice while still raw. It pays to be careful, especially with poultry.

Some food processors have grinding attachments or you can just buy a meat grinder and do it yourself. At least that way you know what's in it.

When and if you do it at the grocery store, tell them not to put any fat or skin in the grinder with the turkey. You never know what those butchers do!!

It has a removable crock and it's white. I think it might be ceramic almost. It feels like floor tile to be honest LOL. I don't know the brand name off the top of my head because I am at work and the pot is at home.

I can check tonight if you want?

I will absa-tootly have to give that a try then. My goodness I thought grocery shopping would be so easy, but we IBS-ers can't just pick stuff off the shelves and head on home, huh?

Noted about the twice freezing poultry...my goodness you people are gonna make a chef out of me yet - whether I want to or not ....I am learning so much here!

LM - I don't think the brand makes a difference. I just can't figure out why the food has a funny taste. What did you make in it that had the funny taste--everything or just specific foods? BTW, what does plastic taste like????

I have such good luck (most of the time) with my slow cooker. I find that most foods get done quicker than the recipe says, tho.

Come on Sharon Honey be honest - you never ate a piece of plastic as a kid and got in trouble for it LOL!
Just Joking!
I only cooked a roast with potatoes and carrots and onions in it. Nothing out of the normal! And it just made the whole meal taste terrible.

Geez - I don't know wht to say except that maybe at the time your cooking skills needed honing maybe!????!!

Why don't you try one of the recipes for crockpots on this forum and see how it comes out. If it tastes terribly like plastic, then something's drastically wrong with that machine. Are you willing to give it a go???

I thought you were at work, so why aren't you working???

We have the same problem. Speaking of men in snack aisle, my girls and I went to a birthday party last week with a bunch my friends and their kids. My friend told us about a dream she had just had, she was pregnant and she went grocery shopping with her husband. She went into labor and couldn't find her husband. They paged him and he was in the snack food area. We were all laughing about it. I can so see that happening to her too. Her last baby she didn't even know she was in labor and ended up at the hospital before it started. She was eight cm. dialated at that point. Needless to say she had her son minutes later. He will be two tomorrow.

Don't know where in Canada you are, but Zehrs markets carry them as does A and P. Check with the other specialty cheeses. The website is okcheese.com

That's ok Lana_Marie, just having issues with a ginger cat that seems to use our garden as a bathroom at the moment, so probably came over a bit rough. Also prob. jealous for your conversation with Sharon, I never seem on at the same time as anyone else because of the time difference. Poor me! Time to stop moaning...

go to your grocery store and look in the canned soup aisle for "potato leek" soup. It is usually low in fat and dairy
free and perfect for an ibs sufferer, but check the back label to be sure. Baxters makes a great "potato garden leek"
soup. a bowl of that and a french demi-baguette and you've got heaven in 10 minutes.
also some angel hair pasta and a little prego sauce with french bread never hurt anyone either.

Sarah - We used to have that problem in Fremont. I think about 6 cats used my front flower bed for a toilet. I tried everything--red pepper, black pepper, stuff from the hardware store they said would work. Nothing worked. My husband decided to try to capture the culprit and he did it. But after a while the cats got wise to the traps and stayed away. I don't know what else to suggest--Maybe one of those water spray things that have a motion sensor. Whenever an animal comes around and triggers the sensor, it starts to shoot off water like a sprinkler. And, cats don't like water.

What's a mother to do????

There is a website www.allrecipes.com You are able to have them send you the recipe of the day or search recipes for different things. I have tried 2-3 with chicken that were awesome and fast!!!! You are ble to see the calories etc.. as well, plus if the recipe is for 6 servings and you only have 4 chicken pieces you can ask that the recipe be scaled to meet what you have. Hope this will help

Lana Marie - I was using a box of instant potatoes tonight and read the recipes on the box. These look really good and I thought you'd like them cuz they're quick and easy.

CRISPY HERB BAKED CHICKEN

2/3 c instant mashed potato flakes (Hungry Jack)
1/3 grated soy parmesan
2 tsp parsley flakes
3/4 to 1 tsp garlic powder
3 lb skinned chicken breasts

Combine potato flakes, parmesan, parsley and garlic in med bowl. Spray chicken w/spray I can;t believe it's not butter and then roll in potato flake mixture to coat. Place in cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 375 for 45-60 min or until breasts are fork tender and juices run clear.

Here's another:

EASY SEASONED CHICKEN

boneless skinless chicken/turkey breast halves
bottled FF Italian salad dressing
Hungry Jack mashed potato flakes

1. Dip chicken in dressing; coat with potato flakes.

2. Brown coated chicken in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray 3 to 4 min on each side.

3. Cover and cook over low heat about 10 to 15 min or until chicken is no longer pink inside and juices run clear.

Viola.

Let us know if anyone tries this.

I'm on here most of the time during the day because I check the boards while I am at work....especially right now because of this network being down.

P.S. My cat doesn't go outside so it's not mine peeing in your garden LOL. I hate people who let their pets roam around the city...I couldn't imagine being ok letting my cat do that because I would be worried he "wouldn't be coming home"

I know - we Canadians seemed to be getting jipped. We don't get alot of the good things that these American's do.

I think I am gonna check out Nutters (a health food store here) and see what they have to offer. Maybe that will be helpful. Because I am finding Superstore to not be so super in stocking all the foods we IBS-ers need LOL

Sharon,
I made the crispy herb baked chicken last night for dinner. We had our pastor and his wife for dinner. Talk about stress, my husband told them I was a gread cook. I made a few changes I didn't have parsley flakes so I used some dry basil and I added some salt. This is definatley better than the recipe I had with all the butter and it turned out so good. They said it was great. So thank you. BTW I am eating a little bit right now. Nothing like cold chicken for breakfast, Right?

Heidi - I thought I was the only one who made new recipes for dinner guests??? Glad it turned out good. And, there's nothing wrong with a little cold chicken for breakfast--my bro used to eat soup for breakfast when we were kids (and I think he still does!) Guess I'll have to try it. ! So many recipes, so little time

Karen - The box of potato flakes is gone now but I have Betty Crocker Potato Buds and the ingr are:

Dried Idaho Potatoes, mono and diglycerides (to improve texture), freshness protected by sodium bisulfite and BHT.

Next time you go to the store, read the box on the potato flakes.

If they're instant, they shouldn't have milk or whey in them yet.

I have found that the IBS recipes take such a long time and I have trouble keeping up with all the ingredients because there alot that I don't have.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to quickly stock my cupboards with new ingredients? Also - any quick meal ideas? (IE: Thyme, and those types of ingredients - because I think soon I will have tons of these little ingredients and not use them very often)

I work two jobs and don't get home until later and my husband only knows how to make hamburger helper or fried eggs and bacon lol.

Any suggestions would help...I just find it so difficult to experiment with new meal ideas because I find these meals in the cookbook to take so long and because I don't want to find something else to make if it doesn't turn out lol.

I am 24 years old and have never really had to cook meals before because I was always able to buy the quick meals.

Hi Lana-Marie,

Yes...I feel the same. One thing that I have started doing though is to take advantage during the weekends, and make an extra couple of portions to freeze down and re-heat. Eventually you build up quite a stock-pile.

All the best

Bring tomatoes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 min. Stir in macaroni: cover and simmer for 15 min. Uncover and simmer until macaroni is tender and sauce it thickened.

If you are still looking for quick meal ideas, I stock my freezer with basic frozen veggies. In my local grocery store they sell diced peppers and diced onions, as well as frozen potatoes (hash browns/diced). The potatoes are not processed and find it is much easier to get a meal together if you do not have to chop everything up. If I do need to chop veggies, I usually buy more and chop up a bunch and put in serving size freezer bags. I also back double batches of different breads and freeze them too.
I noticed you had a lot of herbs (assuming dried). If you have parsley/rosemary/oregano/basil you can dip chicken in and bake or put on a george forman grill. I have a whole bunch of different blends and just sprinkle on and cook chicken and pork. In addition I try and make a bunch of stuff on days off, like an egg beater quiche, with no crust. So long as I have enough left overs in my fridge, my husband can figure out how to put on a plate and reheat in the microwave. Amazing how men seem to skip out of this! Feel for you on the busy with work, and hubby not able/willing to cook....same at my house

Re: My old heading I have, since the day I posted this, just learnt I have to cook. I was used to being able to open a can of Ravioli or Hamburger Helper or grilled cheese and soup etc.

Honestly - Since I have posted this I have started to love cooking and baking and am learning how to cope with the diet alot better.

Grocery shopping for the "new" foods then was so difficult because I was checking every label. Now I am able to breeze through the aisle and find exactly what I need.

As for the spices....rather than my buying all the spices at once I make a list of all the spices Heather mentioned and I don't have then each time I got I choose one or two and pick them up. I have tons and tons of spices and extras that I would never have but it has opened alot of spicy doors for me lol.

I have learnt to marinate, sautee, etc etc all thanks to our Heather. I am still no Martha Stewart - I would put me at a Debra from Everyone Loves Raymond. LOL

I was so excited - I went for groceries yesterday and was able to find turkey ground and turkey breakfast sausages and was able to make meatloaf. I used to have to use Ground Beef and Pork/Beef Breakfast Sausage so I haven't had it in over 9 months. I was so excited and made it for supper last night. It was so wonderful and completely safe I am sure because I never had any attacks at all.

Thanks for all your suggestions everyone! I appreciate it.
Just thought I should update you all. There are some wonderful suggestions on here - I have to get busy and try more and more of them!

Lana, I remember when you first posted on the boards, and you were really at a loss as to how to change your diet because it seemed so overwhelming. (Did you have a frequent buyer card at Burger King? I think that was you...)

Everything you had been eating you suddenly couldn't, and everything you were now supposed to be eating you were unfamiliar with. Plus you hadn't cooked much, and that was another huge obstacle to overcome. You were really discouraged and frustrated, but you were also determined to help yourself.

I've watched you go from a struggling newbie with constant questions to an old pro on the board. Now when you post, you're much more likely to be welcoming new folks yourself, and answering questions that you yourself were asking just a little while ago. It's been delightful to watch this transition, and I've seen other folks on the board make this change too. I always wish I could give hugs in person when this happens instead of just posting a message. You really should be so incredibly proud of all that you've accomplished!

And thanks especially for this message. I'm sure you've just encouraged a lot of people who are trying to change their lives the way you changed yours, and your suggestions are incredibly helpful. You've made great points about how people can gradually shop for new things, and try new foods, and maybe even become great cooks and bakers without ever really planning to. I am just overjoyed when someone finds that what started out as frustrating work becomes something they not only grow to like but to find rewarding. That's always one of my biggest hopes with IBS recipes - that someone will try something new, be happily surprised, and be inspired to continue on that path. It is so wonderful to see that change so that what used to just be all a bunch of negatives (I can't eat hamburgers! I have to bake these muffins from scratch?!) turns into positives (I love these turkey burgers! I baked fabulous bread all by myself and my family loved it too!).

You just made my day. I hope you're giving yourself one helluva big pat on the back - you deserve it.

Much love,
H

Wow - aren't you sweet... And yes, I had a discount card a BK. I have only eat the veggie burger there now, but its maybe once a month MAYBE!

I guess this diet has forced me to do whatever I have to do to live a better life. You were a wonderful help to me and I appreciate your book. You are to give up your jobs etc to help strangers. You are so special.

I have been fortunate enough to have a supportive husband and family and friends as well as everyone on here. And I also realized that I am the only one who can make myself better.

I truly understand the struggle people go through to make a diet change. I had a family wedding a few weekends ago and people were asking me why I had to bring my own kabobs. (Everyone else had burgers and I just didn't want someone to accidentally take my burger and then I have to eat the wrong burgers) So I explained to them, as briefly over a dinner table, as I could. The only thing was that people wanted my kabobs and leave their burgers on the BBQ. LOL

It is a very difficult life change. You wouldn't think food affects a person so much, but it truly does.

Thank you for everything you do Heather and thank you for teaching me how to make the necessary changes.

AND thank you to everyone on the board who has helped me change my diet and answering all my questions. I hope to be able to give back some of the wisdom to some newbies as you had all blessed me with previously.

I still have a long ways to go yet...I need to learn how to make all those dishes in your book. There are some that are quite foreign to me - I guess I will have to post some of my questions so I could a) track down the ingredient and b) clear up and questions I may have.

Right now I stick with the pretty basic recipes, but have worn out the baking section of my book.

Thanks again, Heather

Both hubby & I liked it.... the only thing that was different was the feeling in your mouth...because you bite in to the piece of chicken with this breading on it.... but part of it is crispy and part of it is soft (mashed potatoes) on top! LOL Putting the lid over the pan is what makes it not stay crispy...but oh, it was some moist chicken!! I just served it with plain white rice w/a little I can't believe it's not butter spray and a can for green beans.

Hubby wants me to try it with BBQ sauce in place of the Italian dressing next time.....

Quote:

EASY SEASONED CHICKEN

boneless skinless chicken/turkey breast halves
bottled FF Italian salad dressing
Hungry Jack mashed potato flakes

1. Dip chicken in dressing; coat with potato flakes.

2. Brown coated chicken in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray 3 to 4 min on each side.

3. Cover and cook over low heat about 10 to 15 min or until chicken is no longer pink inside and juices run clear.

Viola.

Let us know if anyone tries this.

I made this tonight, and hubby and I couldn't get over how much it's like my "MOI" that I made when we were first married. Back in '64, when I was single, my neighbor served it to me and I liked it so much she taught me how she made it. "MOI" stands for "My Own Idea;" it was her made-up recipe. The only difference between Torbetta's and my old neighbor's is the following additions:

Much more chili powder
Chili sauce
Mexican-style canned corn

(All of which I added.) YUM!

BIG thumbs up here.....

Is this the same as onion powder or minced onion or something?

Which do you think would be easier to tolerate? The real onion cooked with the turkey? Or the dried onion?

You can find them in the spice isle, they are very common.

Quote:



onion flakes = dried minced onion = dehydrated onion flakes Notes: These are onions that have been chopped and then dehydrated. They lack much of the pungency of fresh onions, but they're convenient and great for backpacking. Equivalents: 1 small onion = 1/3 cup = 1 teaspoon onion powder = 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes Substitutes: onion powder (1 teaspoon onion powder = 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes) OR onion (1/3 cup chopped fresh onion = 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes)

There are stewed tomatoes and there are stewed Italian tomatoes... the Italian one, has all the ingredients YOU ( I personally do fine with them ) are not wanting....the other is usually just tomatoes, salt, & maybe pepper and sugar.

I'll try to remember next time I go to the store to look at them closer and see what I find.

I would be really interested in what brand you use! I would have no idea how to stew tomatoes.

I couldn't find dried onion either...so this may be a ditched recipe attempt!

Where did you look for stewed tomatoes? In the canned vegetable aisle? I've also found them near the canned beans and/or near the pasta sauces.

Can you ask someone at your grocery store to help you find the items or see if they can order them for you? These are really common items used in many recipes so I'm surprised they don't carry them.

Stewed tomatoes is fairly simple to make:

Peel the tomatoes by soaking them in boiling water for
one minute. Gently pull away the skin. Place tomatoes in a large pot and add any ingredients or seasoning you want. Cover and boil gently for 15 minutes, until tomatoes are tender.

I think Del Monte's low sodium one doesn't have that other stuff. S&W also has a plain one. Actually, I don't care for the taste of canned stewed tomatoes that much; so I probably shouldn't even be helping with this topic. Lol!
