Andrew’s Food Posts
June 30, 2020: High fiber/high protein lentil pasta, organic marinara, two small pieces of flank steak, mini heirloom tomatoes and garden basil. And my go-to blueberry, avocado, cacao, banana smoothie.
There is easily 50+ grams of protein and 20+ grams of fiber in this meal from both plants and animals.
I’ve started more intensely engaging in strength training again, and getting enough protein is tricky business in IBD. I personally don’t believe in protein powders albeit rare circumstances – I think all of our protein and calories should come from whole food sources. And yet, some of you will undoubtedly freak-out by the two modest pieces flank steak on the plate, and I think this is the first time I’ve posted about eating red meat. There are reasons to avoid eating too much red meat or animal products in IBD, especially given the high concentration of sulfur-containing amino acids which can lead to the over productions of hydrogen sulfide, however, in moderation animal protein is exceptionally nutrient-dense and high in protein.
Lentil pasta is near-orders-of-magnitude higher in fiber and protein than normal pasta and along with my go-to-blueberry-avo-bananna smoothie there is more than enough fiber in this meal to feed my butyrate producers.
And did I mention its freaking delicious?
The whole idea that you have to eat bland, tasteless food to keep inflammation down is certainly not true.
Get back to the kitchen and get cookin’, your body and tastebuds will thank you!
Sweet potato, water, oat flour, eggs, baking powder, ghee, blueberries, cinnamon, vanilla, salt. Done.
“Andrew Kornfeld is a food god.
Egg baked in an avocado half sprinkled with prosciutto and doused in (somehow dairy-free) hollandaise, with tomato and basil and dope balsamic vinegar… On Austin ‘s gluten free sourdough magic.
And some mythical blueberry/banana/cacao smoothie what-have-you…
And it’s IBD-friendly? Hellooo Sunday 🌞 I’m spoiled rotton”
