The Gastroparesis Gourmet Cookbook 

Members and friends of G-PACT (Gastroparesis Patient Association for Cures and Treatments) have contributed recipes for a cookbook, The Gastroparesis Gourmet. According to the introduction, this cookbook is “designed to [help] patients find recipes they can tolerate” and “guide patients in making smart food choices.” 

 

What makes this cookbook unique? Colleen Beener, who serves as G-PACT’s volunteer coordinator and who helped put the cookbook together, explains that after they collected recipes from G-PACT followers, they “had two dietitians (G-PACT volunteers) evaluate each recipe for nutritional information and fat and fiber content (since fat and fiber amounts are important for gastroparesis patients).” Calories, fat, fiber, protein, sugars, etc. are listed at the end of each recipe. “The dietitians also evaluated sugar content to identify any recipes that could be problematic for diabetic patients,” Colleen adds. The dietitians developed substitution lists for fat and fiber as well.

 

“Not every recipe will work for every patient,” Colleen stresses, but with 140 recipes, from appetizers through desserts, there are a lot of options.

 

To order, send $15 per cookbook to G-PACT Cookbook, 39-31 A 201 St., Bayside, NY 11361. To order online, send $15 through PayPal to G-PACT at accounting@g-pact.org. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will benefit G-PACT programs.
