Do you know the proper diet after gallbladder removal? I didn’t. So, when Charlie had to have his gallbladder taken out, I did an online search and here’s what I found:
- low fat but not NO fat
- lean meat only
- little to no red meat
- lots of fruit
- lots of veg
I said, “Charlie, you’ll have to worsen your eating habits to meet these goals.” He eats NO red meat and next-to-none of any kind.
The hospital, in spite of being told he was almost entirely vegetarian, ate no red meat, and had just had his gallbladder removed, brought him meat at every meal but breakfast, beef half the time. Yeah, that’s what I said.
So I got him home and cooked him some GOOD scrambled eggs, then made him these:
Clear soup of white, portabella, and reconstituted morel mushrooms, celery, and veg broth.Fruit salad! Cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, watermelon, blueberries, bing cherries, and peaches.I also made him a smoothie of banana, peanut butter, coconut soy cream, and almond milk.
Special diet, schmecial diet. Good food.
