my mom is on a very restricting diet due to how much she has been sick lately. she has found some recipes that she can eat, but they all are bland and don't have much flavour. i wanted to make some dinner for her soon. she's not allowed to eat sugar, or any sugar substitutes, she can eat any meat, no flour, but she can eat brown rice flour. she can have most fruits and vegtables. no corn, sweet potatoes and potatoes are acceptable. dairy can be used sparingly, and eggs are OK. i think these are the guidelines. so if you have any suggestions they would help so much!!

Can she have lentils, beans/legumes, or quinoa?

You might look into a gluten-free cookbook or website for some ideas that could be altered if needed.

A vegetarian or vegan-like diet may work for her as well.

Hope that helps!

My sympathies to your mother. Hopefully, a dietary change will help her.

My SIL was recently on a gluten-free, sugar-free vegan diet for medical reasons, and she recommends cookbooks by Susan O'Brien.

What about some grilled chicken or beef. Marinate in Italian Dressing for an hour or two. then grill.
Grilled or roasted veggies. Cut verious veggies in bite size pieces drizzle wiht a little olive oil & a pnch of salt, pepper & any spices you like. roast in the oven or grill in a basket.

Fish. One of my fav dinners is baked fish. Very lightly oil a pyrex pie plate add a couple fist fulls of baby spinach a sqeeze of lemon or lime juice & a pinch of salt & pepper. Top with fish a bit more lemon & some bread crumbs. bake accoring to directs for the fish.

Make sure you read ingredients on things... many dressings and such have sugar as an ingredient.

Salads are good. Make your own dressing.
You can have a lot of fun with meats.
You can use a lot of fruits for natural sugars.

Also find out whether her restriction is no white flour or more specifically no gluten. Gluten is found in almost all prepared foods in some form, even things like salad dressing and lunch meat, not just bakery items.
