Hello folks, I'm hoping I can get some help on this.  Hubby has gallstones and is scheduled for surgery to remove his gallbladder in a few weeks.  Until then he has to eat a completely fat free diet.  Lean meats, no oils, no butters, only fat free dairy, he can't even eat an egg yolk.  I have no clue how to cook like this so basically we're doing a lot of steamed rice, steamed veggies and poached chicken breast.  Some ideas could really help easy the rigidity of this diet.
I would cook the beans separately in water with a little onion and a bay leaf. I wouldn't cook them in the chili. Honestly I just use canned beans and add them at the end.
I cook it until 150 and even then it's a little too well done. If you cook t past that you have to have an amazing sauce to go with it. It will need it.
In my opinion all good guilty pleasures lead to a headache
I feel too guilty admitting what my guilty pleasure is. Maybe after I have some wine.
Omg what?!
 Sounds extremely old fashioned but that can be good sometimes.  The crepes seem unnecessary, I use prosciutto instead.
Might it be missing a crunchy texture?  Pangrattato perhaps lol?   I think a celery root puree would be really nice with it, light yet with a rich velvety texture.  Maybe I'm old fashioned but I need a starch in some form.  
Whenever I get odds and ends of meat I throw them in the freezer.  Then I usually place it in a pan of roasting potatoes, that little bit of meat and fat gives a lot of good flavor to potatoes and then you can gnaw on it too.
Sorry to hear about health concerns. I don't know what's happening but I can imagine it is a scary time. All the best for a speedy recovery!
