Food Glorious Food

As promised here are some of the meals I’ve been eating. Some have foods on the so called not allowed list but I’m eating with caution (except the quinoa I ate way more of that than I should in one go at least as I don’t digest that very well. So in future small amounts of that for me! Especially when they caused a bit of a leak due to pancaking – pancaking is where the output doesn’t fall down into the bag but stays around the stoma.

I really like food and have been trying really hard to find ways of incorporating my favourite things to eat to be stoma friendly meals.


Starting top left:
● ham tortellini in a homemade veg sauce
● chorizo and quinoa enchiladas
● bacon, egg and toast
● bacon, black pudding and scrambled egg with cheese sandwich
● jacket potato (no skin) mixed with ham, cheese and roasted peppers
● chicken, chorizo and mozzarella with quinoa
● hunters chicken with sweet potato fries


In this from top left:
● Mexican pizza (bolognese, peppers, jalapeño, stuffed crust)
● cheese omlette
● sweet potato and chickpea curry with rice and homemade naan
● potato and chorizo hash with peppers and asparagus
● peanut chicken stir fry

If anyone wants any of the recipes I’ve cooked so far just drop a comment and I will post the recipe. The curry was particularly good! I can say that as long as you either wait the 6 weeks or you do similar to me and introduce slowly (ie one or two new items a meal) you will get through this!

I want to be able to eat vegetables and foods similar if not the same as before surgery, partly due to laziness as I know what I like to eat but I don’t want the ileostomy to control my life when it comes to eating out or going to friends houses for meals.
