Main dish and casseroles and MORE!


Check out my low sodium, liver loving recipes as I add them. I have started using Ziplist in hopes that it would be easier for you to read them. I am not real big on measuring stuff. I get out the measuring cups and spoons for sure. However,  I also use a spoon and taste as I go. These recipes have been a big experiment in my life since I was diagnosed with End Stage Liver Disease. I decompensated and learned quickly to eat low sodium and low fat.

Guys, most of these pics are in my little farm kitchen. I cook up love with every meal and hope that you can eat better and liver longer. So if you see paint peeling on the windows and a mess on the counter, please ignore that. My kitchen is clean. When the kids come over, they actually want to sit at the bar and eat. We rarely use the table!

I might have stage 4 cirrhosis, and just finished hepatitis c treatment, but I’m NOT eating boring food. Neither am I a slave to the kitchen.

Juicing for liver
Expensive juicers aren’t important. Go with what you can afford!

You’re going to love eating less than 2,000 mg. of sodium a day! Plus these are protein packed and low fat! You may have to make adjustments if you’re on triple therapy and need the fat grams. I aim for 1/2 my body weight in protein grams. 150 lb = 75 grams of protein daily to stay healthy.

Bon Appetit! Karen :)

I’m working more on juicing recipes and encourage you to do the same. I know that nausea can lead to malnourishment. We need out strength lovey’s!

    1. I remember feeling so alone with my diagnosis. My poor brain was overloaded. I hope you can feel the hugs across the internet tonight dear one. When I say we are in this together, I mean it.

      No matter what you are facing, there is always hope.

      Let me know if you need something. xoxo Karen:)

  1. I was diagnosed with Hep C five years ago. Took the 52 week ribovivarin/pegintron treatment. Did not clear. I have a strain, unsure what its called at this moment . 4g.
    I have had it for 35 yrs with no trouble. Not sure why it raised its ugly head. Life was pretty good till then. In five years I have lost my husband and home of 25 years. Had to move in with my mother due to not having anywhere to go and no job in 10 years. I was lucky in the fact that I did not have to work. Anyway now Im scared and feel alone. Im trying to improve my health and not having very good luck. It is my crutch~ I eat a pint of ice cream every day. Very little protein and had no idea how important my diet is. I bought a juicer, a Breville and a bunch of fruits and veggies 10 days ago and have not touched any of it. I guess I’m wondering if it will work and I’m so tired I cannot seem to stand in the kitchen long enough to learn it all. Help Please just need some support and juicing ideas:) Debbie

    1. Debbie,

      Aw hunnyo – You’re never alone and you always have support. Check out my facebook and hook up with our private support. They’re a loving bunch of people who know exactly what you’re going through.

      As you can tell, I was the same: Long term HCV and didn’t know it. I’m wondering if you have some liver damage? The Hepatitis C will sap your strength. The virus keeps your liver full of inflammation. You are SO very smart in attempting to eat well to support your body until you can try treatment again. Maybe the newer drugs?

      My marriage failed also after over 30 years. Being sick is so hard on our family, finances, and our spirit, mind and body. A little ice cream may feel good. I have yet to give up my pop tarts! But by getting good protein, you will be stronger. Juicing is a good step. Here is my best tip on that: clean your veggies all at once and put em in the fridge. Work on it all day as you feel like it. Sit at the kitchen table with the garbage can beside you. Then each time you want to juice, it is much easier!

      Forming new habits takes time. I am concerned that you are eating, but not getting enough nourishment.

      Please write more or hook up on fb. What about blood lab levels? New treatment meds?

      And give you mom a hug for me. God bless moms. I am so happy that you have her right now. You WILL get a chance to start over dear one.
      Thanks for sharing with me. Keep in touch please! xoxoxo Karen:)

  2. So thrilled I found you! I was diagnosed with NAFLD last August. Scared me pretty good. I asked the doctor (he did a CT, ultrasound, colonoscopy, and throat scope) what to do? He said “Lose weight. I’ll see you back in 10 years for another colonoscopy unless you have other issues.” And that was it! He basically wanted me to go back to my internist for treatment. I had never heard of fatty liver disease (and I have a background in emergency medicine). So I have been doing as much research as possible – lost 15% of my body weight (almost 40 pounds) since August and then learned that if you lose weight really fast, it causes MORE damage to the liver! So many differing opinions on what you can and can’t eat with liver disease that I am totally confused and afraid to eat more than a handful of things. Now that I have found you and your blog, I can breathe again! I know that you have done more research and are confident in what can be eaten regularly. You are a blessing in my life! Thank you so much. I look forward to following you as I gain better control of my health.

    1. I’m thrilled that you found the blog too. It’s just my place where I’ve learned to live past that death sentence. You’ve done amazing to lose so much. I am glad to see that you are letting it level off now. Since the doctor didn’t find anything on tests or procedures, it means you are in pretty good shape! That is awesome news sweetie! You can keep your health in a good balance with diet and nutrition since it was caught early.

      I’m so glad that the site has helped you. I’m working on getting the rest of my recipes up. I am constantly working on new ways of cooking that reduces my symptoms associated with liver damage. Promise to keep me posted on your progress … and let me know if you run across any great recipes. You sound like a really proactive person who is not going to take this lying down. All my best to you in the New Year!!!

      Much love,
