I will be cooking for a man who recently had a colostomy. When he was discharged he was given a partial list of foods he can eat and foods to avoid. Does anyone know of a website that can give me more extensive information on what he can eat? Can he eat onions or beans? I don't want to make anything that will cause him discomfort. He's also diabetic and on low salt. It's going to be a challenge cooking for him.
It really shouldn't be too hard to cook for him if you just follow his recommended calorie diet and use the exchange lists and just eliminate the choices that are on his list r/t the colostomy. The ADA should be able to provide you with a copy of the exchange list or his Dr. Any dietician would also have a copy for you. Good Luck!
