I have made a comprehensive list of all the foods that are good for me and not good for me after I have the gallbladder removed. I also have to be careful of my carb intake because of the diabetes. So it is going to be a tough fucking road for this chica. There are not many veggies on this list but I will slowly work my way up on some of them. I dislike that onions are on the NO list but I understand it. I can use shallots instead. So here it is....take a lookie loo.
Positive Gallbladder foods: Lean meats in moderation, skinless chicken, fish, brown rice, beets/beet powder, apples, lemon water, olive oil, flax oil, Ginger/Turmeric, whole grain, melons, grapes, berries, pears, tomatoes, carrots, all dark and leafy greens, vinegar, cucumber, whey protein powder, and soy.
Negative Gallbladder foods: Beef, Pork, processed foods, trans fats, saturated fats, greasy/fried foods, dairy, cold cuts, bacon, coffee/soda/black tea, Nuts, onions, alcohol, chocolate, sugar, white flour/pasta, oranges/grapefruit, legumes, cauliflower/broccoli, and corn.
Now it says to avoid legumes but then it says that lentils are okay. I have seen that in quite a few listings. I know that there are lentils that become mushier as you cook them, like the red ones so I will try those. I will not go for the black lentils, those might hurt me. I will proceed with caution. Some places said lean lean meats and then others said no beef and no pork at all. Others said skinless chicken and others said no chicken at all. It has to do with the person. I am listing things I have to watch out for so that I do not end up in the toilet all weekend.
Going to be very interesting if I can give up the caffeine without killing anybody.
