Turmeric Ginger Chicken
July 22, 2016
On the weekend I was diagnosed with SIBO, Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth. Sounds charming doesn’t it?
I am still trying to get my head around the whole thing and adjust to the dietary changes it has brought to our home. I am not going to write anything else about it today until I work my way further through and understand it more.
Essentially, while I am in the early stages of treatment I am following a very strict diet. I created this recipe earlier in the week to help me gently ease in a strict diet, without being able to eat many of the things I enjoy. You will see that it is very much in line with the usual style of my recipes, it also complies to all of the new guidelines my Naturopath has set.
This meal is SIBO friendly and also family friendly with it’s lovely clean fresh flavours. If I had of made this recipe last week I would have made it the same – except I would have added garlic and probably served it with noodles. All in all this recipe signals a good start to healing a long term condition.
Knowing that I can still enjoy fresh garden flavours as such a those in this recipe is helping me to work on the trickier meals of breakfast and lunch. I am looking forward to finally understanding and being able to resolve more than 15 years of health issues.
I hope that you enjoy this meal.
Over time I will a more SIBO friendly recipes as I get into the swing of using (or not using) many ingredients I have previously often included in my cooking.
To make the sichuan pepper and salt, combine 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, use a mortar and pestle to combine and then add to the dish.
The eggplant can be cooked with the other ingredients in the one pan if you wish.
If you are seeking more recipe inspiration I recommend The Healthy Gut . Rebecca has created two SIBO cookbooks to help sufferers. I purchased her Family Favourites book and it has some beautiful recipes designed to make the transition less stressful with meals suited to the whole family.
