We do lots of proteins and fats to keep our weight in check. don’t know enough about the gallbladder to know if that’s okay.  I also don’t do elaborate meals. We make a big thing of chili on the weekends and freeze it and have chili 2 times a week. I love Cobb salad and would pre-prepare parts for the week and actually be open to eating the “salad” minus the leafy greens. Tuna salad is super easy (I eat with no bread or open face high fiber bread).

If you don’t like chicken then I would try to stick to other lean proteins like fish and turkey.  As for salads I prefer my salads without leafy greens.  The Greek salad that I make almost weekly includes cucumber, tomatoes, onion, kalamata olives, red wine vinegar and evo.

LittleButtons :  That’s such a bummer! Well, no basil then, but you can totally get rid of that and mabye swap out the beans for corn, or something else that you do enjoy instead. There are plenty of ways to get that salad feel without the leaves! Wishing you lots of luck 🙂

LittleButtons :  I just had a great “salad” for lunch today. It was couscous, avocado, roasted brussel sprouts, and cucumbers. For a dressing, I mixed hummus and apple cider vinegar. 

I’m so sorry you can’t eat greens anymore- I don’t know what I would do. 🙁 I know it’s summertime, but there are some great healthy soups that you could make. I use skinnytaste.com a lot.

LittleButtons :  Try black beans, corn, red onions, tomatoes, and Mexican spices together. Oh, and cilantro, if you like it — it tastes like soap to me, but everyone else around me loves it!

No real advice, but I’m glad you posted this. I’ve been wondering this for ages! I’m with you: No leafy greens for me (along with a slew of other things, sadly, because of multiple chronic digestive issues)! Let me just tell you that I’m with you! One of the very few things I rarely have an issue with are carbs (bread, pasta, etc; allbland because I have intolerances to any spices or yumminess), so that’s not very good for trying to eat well! 

Good luck! I’m interested to see more responses!
