Hello

Hello everybody,

I'm new here and have been enjoying myself the past few days reading posts from over the years. I'm 60 and have been cooking for about 50 years. I have always enjoyed learning about food and cooking.

Past few years both my wife and I have had to adopt a restrictive plant based diet due to health problems, but I still maintain the goal of preparing food we want to eat as opposed to what we can eat. I am looking forward to learning new things from the people here, and want to thank you all in advance.

Welcome! There are many cooks here who follow special diets for medical or other reasons. They’re both very committed to helping people with their questions, and they’re always eager for suggestions and new recipes. I know will find these forums to be useful, and usually entertaining, too. Looking forward to your input!

Lol, Cheryl. My first thought was that restrictive diet aside, a glass or 7 of vino goes along with it.

What say you, Grapey? (I was going to use the acronym of your username, but, hmm, no. Talk to Sir Loin of Beef)

Oh, and welcome.

I thought the same thing, Bucky - I was going to use his initials in my greeting, then thought, nah...

Paid in Grapes, there are lots of folks here on restrictive diets. Hopefully you'll get some good ideas and will be able to share some as well!

Just a musing… Isn’t the term “restrictive diet” redundant? Diets are, by definition, restrictive, unless you’re using the word “diet” to mean “what I habitually eat.”
