Book Review: Creative Cooking for Colitis

4:25 pm by

This week’s book review is “Creative Cooking for Colitis,” written by Angela Breidenbach (yay for Angelas!). I’m pleased to know Angela as a fellow writer and member of the American Christian Fiction Writers group, and she offered a preview of the book, available on CD or as a PDF download.

First, a little bit about colitis. Our good buddies over at Wikipedia define colitis as “an inflammation¬† of the colon and is often used to describe an inflammation of the large intestine,” with symptoms that include abdominal pain, loss of appetite, fatigue, diarrhea, cramping and bloating. Angela herself suffered from six months of constant illness caused by microscopic colitis. “Everything I ate hurt and caused embarrassing results,” and Angela developed depression on top of the painful problems.

Spicy Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

2:06 am by

My BFF, Megs, and I try to make a lunch date at least once a month – we call it “lunch therapy.” Our favorite couch? P.F. Changs, where we share a bowl of spicy chicken noodle soup with brown rice, sauteed mushrooms and a nice (i.e. least expensive) bottle of white wine. Changs is awesome – the bowl of soup is usually more than enough for both of us, and we take turns bringing home the leftovers.

One thing I love about Chang Soup is that it clears my sinuses and peps me right up. So when Mr Lici had a nasty cold, I knew that chicken soup just wouldn’t be enough. He needed garlic & lemongrass goodness, spices to clear the sinuses, and something that would actually be edible to his poor, ailing tastebuds. I decided to try & replicate the fabulous soup of Changs for Mr Lici. Judging from how much he ate, the results were not too shabby. I made it a little too spicy, but that was easily rectified by adding another container of chicken broth to the leftovers.
