Gallbladder diet, 07/28/16, Scallops & Papaya

Gallbladder disease doesn't have to mean bland food forever.

In fact, after stabilizing any inflammation there are many awesome gallbladder friendly dishes one can prepare.

Gallbladder diet.  Scallops pack a nutritional punch and are gallbladder easy.
On top of all important gall bladder friendly traits most if not all of these recipes will help you move in the direction of optimum health and fitness.

I've lost over one hundred pounds since my aortic dissection and gallbladder issues began in 2011.

Through a dedicated low-impact exercise plan that included walking, swimming and yoga, combined with the gallbladder diet my waist dropped from a men's size 44 to my present (and old high school waist size) men's 30.

Collaterally, I feel much better about myself and am not near as embarrassed to take my shirt off around the swimming pool.

Today's gallbladder/heart/body healthy foods are scallops and papaya.


Scallops are one of the world's most healthiest foods.  They are full of protein and omega 3 fatty acids along with many other important nutrients while being low in simple carbs and calories.
Gallbladder diet.  Scallops are an excellent source of protein and very gallbladder friendly to many.

A 3 oz. serving of steamed or broiled scallops contain almost a third of our daily B-12 requirements while also offering much needed magnesium and potassium.

Preparing scallops couldn't be quicker and easier.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, spread the frozen or fresh seafood and sprinkle with a dash of salt, black pepper, ginger, turmeric, lime juice and garlic powder.

Place in a pre-heated over for fifteen minutes or until sizzling, then broil till the tops turn a light golden color.

Allow to cool and serve with homemade horseradish based cocktail sauce or honey mustard.

Garnish with fresh cut parsley from your patio garden.

OMG.  My mouth is watering.  Total preparation time is about twenty minutes.


Gallbladder diet.  Papaya has a long history of soothing digestive systems. #gallbladderfriendly
Papaya is one of those foods that no matter how queasy your stomach may feel this fruit makes it all feel better and best of all is full of gallbladder friendly nutrition!
Gallbladder diet.  Papaya is an excellent fruit when the digestive system is acting 'iffy'.
Papaya should be stored on the shelf until the green outer coating begins to turn the papaya yellow-orange hue.  I usually place mine in the refrigerator for a day or so then until fully ripe and firmly soft to the touch.

Rinse the fruit and peel.  Remove seeds by scraping out with a spoon (they will sprout and grow into papaya trees if you plant them) and serve cold.

I've always found papaya to be gallbladder friendly and completely satisfying for a breakfast or anytime snack.

Put the two together, scallops and papaya, and you have the perfect, exotic summertime dinner!

Cheers!  Kevin   #gallbladderlife
