My partner has got to have a special diet, and I am at a loss what to do!
He is so bored with rice and potatoes.
He can't eat, soy, dairy, eggs, yeast, and can have wheat only on occasions, meat and all sea food is restricted to just once or twice a week..I have no idea what to cook him any more!!!
We do eat rice pasta and some cheese stuff called Daiya cheese, it is made with pea protein I think?
It has to be a low purine diet Thanks for any help u can give..

    1. Low purine diets are often recommended for gout sufferers. You may want to Google for Gout diet recipes. I'm sorry I'm not really familliar with what exactly they entail.

      Best of luck!

        Thank you for trying, and letting me know about googling low purine diets..

      2. Might be worth asking this on the special diets board as well as here.

        I would recommend playing around with ingredients you can use. Making various soups to change up flavour combos, also making sauces and pesto's to liven up the rice dishes. Barley could perhaps be an ingredient to play with too.

        I wish I could help you out more here!
