3 High Energy, High Protein, Low Fibre Guidelines Eating well, even though you may not feel hungry, is an important part of taking care of yourself. Choosing foods high in energy (calories) and protein will give you the nutrition you need to help you feel stronger. Fibre is the part of the plant that your body cannot digest. It is found in whole grain breads and cereals, nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables. You need a special diet that is low in fibre. Read the Nutrition Facts table on food labels to help you choose foods low in fibre and high in energy (calories) and protein. Use the tips below to add more energy (calories) and protein to low fibre foods. Low Fibre Foods to Choose Vegetables Well cooked vegetables (except broccoli, corn, peas, spinach) Tomato and vegetable juices Cooked white and sweet potato (without the skin) Ways to Add Energy and Protein Sprinkle cheese on hot vegetables. Use extra butter, margarine or gravy on cooked vegetables and potatoes. Add plain yogurt or sour cream to cooked vegetables. Brown sugar can be added to cooked vegetables. To mashed potatoes add plain yogurt, mashed cooked egg, sour cream or high protein milk* (see recipes). 1

4 Low Fibre Foods to Choose Fruits Canned fruit Ripe banana Pulp-free fruit juices Grain Products Plain white and light rye bread, rolls and bagels Baked goods made with white flour Ways to Add Energy and Protein Enjoy a dish of canned fruit or sliced bananas with high protein milk*, cream, cottage cheese, whipped cream, ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet or yogurt.

5 Low Fibre Foods to Choose White rice Ways to Add Energy and Protein Plain yogurt or sour cream added to tomato sauce makes a creamier texture. Add extra margarine, butter, grated cheese, cottage cheese, cream and high protein milk* to pasta sauces and rice dishes. Cook rice in vegetable juice. Milk and Alternatives Homogenized or 2% milk Soy milk Evaporated milk Skim milk powder High protein milk* (see recipes) Chocolate milk Cottage cheese Cheese Yogurt cheese (see recipe) Add chocolate or other flavoured syrups to milk.

Skim milk powder can be added to cold foods like milkshakes, yogurt, puddings and custard, and to hot foods like casseroles, meatloaf, pancake batter, sauces, mashed potato, soups, gravies, ground meats and cooked cereal. Add cottage cheese to canned fruit, eggs, pancake batter, casseroles, pasta and cooked vegetables.

6 Low Fibre Foods to Choose Milk and Alternatives Plain or flavoured yogurt (without nuts, seeds or dried fruit) Pudding or custard Meat and Alternatives All meat, fish, poultry Eggs Smooth peanut butter Tofu Ways to Add Energy and Protein To yogurt add skim milk powder, sliced bananas or canned fruit in heavy syrup.

10 High Protein Custard 3 Eggs 1/4 cup (60 ml) Sugar 2 cups (500 ml) High protein milk, scalded 1/4 tsp (1 ml) Vanilla extract dash Salt Combine eggs, sugar and salt. Slowly add and stir in slightly cooled milk. Divide into 4 glass dishes. Set into a shallow pan of water. Bake at 325 F for 20 minutes or until set. Makes 4 servings Per serving: Energy: 220 calories Protein: 13 grams Yogurt Cheese Place a strainer over a bowl and line with a paper coffee filter. Pour 2 cups (500 ml) yogurt into the filter. For best results, choose a yogurt that doesn t contain gelatin. Yogurt with a higher % M.F. (milk fat) will have more calories. Place in refrigerator and drain for 3 to 12 hours, depending on desired consistency. The longer it drains, the firmer the yogurt cheese will be. Yogurt cheese can be used as a whipped topping. If plain yogurt is used, sugar, nutmeg or cinnamon may be used to flavor. It also can be used instead of cream cheese. Keep for up to one week in the refrigerator. Safe Use of Homemade Drinks 1. Keep all homemade drinks refrigerated and throw out after 24 hours. 2. Do not keep at room temperature for longer than 2 hours. 3. Do not add raw eggs to any drinks. Eggbeaters or BreakFree, which are egg substitutes, can be used. These are found in the cold or frozen section at your grocery store. 8

11 Nutritional Products You Can Buy You can use liquid nutritional supplements or meal replacements such as Nestle Breakfast Anytime, Boost, Boost Plus, Ensure, Ensure Plus, Resource or any no-name meal replacement without fibre.

Add to milk drinks, puddings, milkshakes and other foods to increase the protein content. Follow the directions on the package. Notes Dietitian Phone 9
