well, if that's his photo he looks pretty healthy and happy...it's hard to watch any child suffer....excuse my ignorance but is this something that he will 'grow' out of? or will it constantly change? i wish you and your family all the best with this...it cannot be easy to try to nourish your child while not always knowing the outcome. so while not completely understanding everything about what he can and cannot eat, here are a few ideas off the top....
grilled salmon with bluebbery relish
" " " grilled watermelon relish
" " " corn relish(green peppers, parsley, s&p)
brown rice fritters(cakes) or buckwheat or a grain combo with corn, peppers, parsley, salt......bind with potato flakes or polenta if allowed or form and cook them while the rice is still warm or bind with the infant formula and quinoa flour
steak fries with sea salt
roasted broccoli with sea salt
roasted quinoa salad with lemon, parsley,oil and salt
sauteed broccoli and orange segments
turkey burgers with corn relish
spinach and pear salad with mtoasted pumpkin seeds and purreed apple vinaigrette
glazed carrots with honey or raw brown sugar and cinnamon
winter squash and apple soup
fish and chips sort of(cod) dredged in polenta or quinoa flour
chicken tenders rolled in polenta or crushed potato chips......if instant potato flakes are allowed they make for a wonderful dredge and binder for lots of things
can he eat rice noodles or spring roll wrappers? if so fill rice papers with any vegetable he can tolerate....dipping sauce....orange vinaigrette
stuffed green peppers with brown rice, or buckwheat, turkey, corn, parsley......roast the peppers
hope this helps...will try to think of more for him....what does he like the most?
after thinking some more on this i have a few more thoughts and questions.....
you mentioned a chicken soup you make...a heartier stew could be made by using potatoes to thicken the broth...mash a few potatoes in the pot as well as dicing some for the soup itself. any of the grains or vegetables you list can be added. chicken fajita soup(only green peppers).....can he tolerate corn tortillas? they are great to thicken soups if he can... what else do you make?
any of the fruits you list can easily be made into vinaigrettes for salads or sauces.....grilled chicken breast with blueberry sauce? maybe dredged in quinoa flour with some cocoa powder in it and sauteed....topped with a fruit sauce? a simple herb(s&p, parsley,oil) roasted chicken or turkey breast with rib meat......will you be adding 'safe' foods to your list for us as you go along? what about jicama, honey, celery, lemon, any vinegar, fresh herbs or spices?
you are both correct and smart to seek help from a cooking forum...particularly this one. there are some very talented, creative cooks here(both pro and home) who are generous with both their time and their knowledge. i for one appreciate the opportunity to help another human being by sharing any talent or knowledge i have. you will find that most here will as well.......welcome!
