Hmmm, how do you feel about beans? I eat a lot of chicken with black beans and rice, salads with hard boiled egg whites and kidney beansl black beans or chick peas! Anything with quinoa.  That way you’re still getting protein so you’re not quite as miserable.

Im pretty sure my colleague’s boyfriend has gallbladder issues… I know he has weekly Dr appointments but not sure about surgery.  I’ll ask her tomorrow what his eating plan is.

Really lean ground beef, fat free/low fat sour cream, shredded lettuce, fat-free cheese,  salsa etc mixed in some type of bowl or like a low-fat tortilla?

Smoothies using fatfree milk, ice, fat free yogurt and any fruits you guys like?

I second the beans deal, rice and or quinoa! Add a bunch of spices .

Baked beans are typically fat free ( get the vegetarian type) 

maybe scout out the vegetarian/vegan section for fake meats ( fat free hotdogs etc)

We should trade husbands for a few weeks :). Mine will only tolerate beans in Mexican food – I could eat them daily! 

Id go with different marinades for chicken, and serve it with different things so he still feels like he’s eating normally, and things with creamy textures so he doesn’t miss the fat.  Redpotatoes when they’re boiled are yummy, even without butter.  

Pastas with tomato based sauces should be good, my brain isn’t coming up with much else right now, but I blame the baby 😉

🙁  That sounds really tough.  I know that when you take out the yummy fat, you have to learn to use spices to sort of trick your mouth, so to say.  Darling Husband tricks chicken into being good with garlic, basil, thyme, oregano, and SALT and pepper.  It can make a huge difference.  You might want to check out http://www.christinacooks.com/ she is all about substituting and I have watched her show and found it useful.

I like munching on sugar snap peas, to me they’re a fair bit sweet and they satisfy that “need to much and snack” craving.

Do you like fish?  There’s a lot you can do to change it up and different types have different amounts of fat.

Stir fries with tamari/soya sauce based sauces.

Salsa on anything, even different types like mango.

Ground chicken breast, make it into a chili, so it is very low calorie.

Stir fry’s with chicken breast, and use just a little bit of teriyaki sauce, or even sodium light soya sauce.

Baked white fish, with lemon and served with rice and salad.

Lots of different spices, yum!

Basically alot of chicken breast. Does it matter what kind of fats you are eating? Like salmon can be fatty but it is riddled with the healthy fats, vs a cheeseburger.

Darling Husband also uses nonfat yogurt and greek yogurt in a lot of things for me- yum, add salt and cucumber and dill= tzatziki sauce!  It makes everything better.  I also like peppered turkey from the deli.  Hm… he also uses plain yogurt for pasta dishes as a base instead of butter… adds some chicken or fish and veggies.

Also, I am not sure what fats he can have- but I love Annie’s Cowgirl Ranch.  It is so good.  I toss carrots and walnuts in it- it made me love salads because I used to hate them!  I also saute’ garlic, onions, mushrooms for fatfree flavor… you can use chicken broth instead of butter or oil.
