I want to thank you for this as well, i have no appetite and because of cfs i’m not awake much so my calories are poor too.
I have one full afternoon meal consisting of a good portion of chicken/lamb, buckwheat kasha and a portion veg.
The rest of my meals are small portions of various salads, vegetables, egg and cress backed up by a huge buckwheat pizza dough bread which i might have 1/2 to 2/3 in a day.
I have 1 glass kefir on average and infrequently some greek yoghurt, even less frequenly some tomatoes in my salad raw. Berries haven’t agreed with me for some reason.
Part of my problem is i’m very sensitive to anti-fungals and prebiotics so i feel exhausted after meals.
Recently to bulk out my calories i’m making my own mayonnaise which is primarily huge lashings of olive oil with 2 eggs and it lasts me a week or less and you have it with so much, i have it with egg and cress sandwiches, chicken, lamb, as a salad dressing.
The high fat recipes i personally recommend are these:
replace potato with rutabaga, olvier is delicious and very versatile, just makes loads and you have a very quick and nutritious sandwich filling and with the mayo it’s fattening.
Not sure if you can have yoghurt?
I also have fried aubergine with garlic yoghurt, insiders tip is to salt the aubergine after peeling until it sweats after a couple minutes, this way it will soften and be ready quickly!
Wash the salt off the aubergine and shallow fry in olive oil. Now i recommended this recipe for calories because aubergines are like a sponge and will soak up a lot of the olive oil.
Leave them to rest on some kitchen roll on a tray to soak up the excess oil as they can get very soggy.
Blend a couple cloves garlic to taste with low sugar probiotic yoghurt and have it with bread. I have it with my buckwheat pizza dough bread which again has a lot of olive oil in it.
Give me a shout if you want all the recipes i mentioned. I’m going to make more of an effort too thanks guys!
Also very cook and easy is baba ganoush, just stick holes through an aubergine with a skewer and put it under the grill or in a barbeque, the skin with burn smoking the aubergine fresh instead and giving it that distinctive smokey taste. Cut in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, thicken using a tahini substitute. Plenty recipes on line.
I also have a recipe for lamb kebabs/burgers and the mince is quite fattening as far as i can tell.
Oh also chicken soup and bone broths i think, at least there’s a lot of oil in mine when i make them, they even go gelantinous when cooled.
