Can anyone share some recipes for gout sufferers?

Asked by Zone36 (413points) November 24th, 2010

I googled ‘gout recipes’ and all I got was mainly salads and soups.

I want a little more variety out there and main dishes.

” * Milk and milk products are excellent food options in the low purine diet for gout. Ensure that low fat dairy products are incorporated in the regular diet plan.
* Plain yogurt and sweetened yogurt are good to lower uric acid levels in the blood. So, have one or more servings of yogurt daily to combat gout pain.
* Drink lots of water and healthy fluid (about 8 cups) on a daily basis to treat gout naturally. This will help in flushing out uric acid in urine and help prevent formation of urate crystals.
* Moderate protein intake will cause no virtual effects, provided that the nutrient comes from healthy sources, like nut butter, eggs and fruits.
* Tofu prepared from soybean milk is an excellent protein rich food for patient having gout condition. So, to get optimal protein essential for the body, incorporate tofu and tofu based products.
* Foods to eat for gout include blackberries, blueberries and other dark skinned berries. They are found to lower uric acid levels and alleviate inflammatory responses. Thus, berries are good fruits for gout patients.”

So I would say a stir fry with tofu and vegetables would be very good.

Another good main dish would be a vegetable quiche.

I’ve been reading a lot lately about cherries (especially dried and the juice) being helpful to alleviate gout. You can read about it here

Here’s a recipe for cherry salsa

And one for dried cherries in oatmeal cookies

And one for cherry chicken

And one for fresh cherry pie (you can use pre-made pie crusts if you want).

And one for turkey salad with cherries

And pork roast with cherry sauce.

And one for chocolate cherry quickbread

Cloves have long been proven to improve gout. I would look for curries and spiced dessert containing clove. Just be sure to use whole cloves that you grind fresh for the recipe.

Funny you say this, but I was reading online earlier that Gaufinessin (which is used as an expectorant for coughs) has very good results in improving gout. Best part is that its OTC (over the counter)
