My son was diagnosed with Homocystinuria at the age of 2 . He has been on low-protein diet since that time. Over the past 16 years (he is 18 now), I have been making many mouth-watering recipes for him. I have summarized many successful and sumptuous recipes in this website. I have tried to use food products available readily so the thought of preparing a low protein meal is not daunting anymore. This is just a taste of what is in store for future.
July 4, 2000 : Another bread, smoothie, sumptuous old fashioned banana pudding cake, Chutneys & Sauces, and more……………
January 19, 2002: Cooking workshop conducted for the first time. Tried out some recipes from the web site and some new recipes which will be added to the website. 35 people participated and had hands-on experience in working with the recipes. More workshops to come in March and probably May.
February 6, 2002: A few more additions after the workshop. Due to unavoidable circumstances not able to update for a long time after July, 2000. Hopefully I should update quite often from now on.
January 3, 2004: After various computer glitches and crashes, finally had to change the COMPUTER ITSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May be now good fortune will miraculously keep my computer crash-free and trouble-free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????? Yeah! Right!!!! Anyway, here are more recipes and hopefully the update will be quite consistent from now on!! Gulp!!!

While this website helps one in preparing low-protein dishes , I have not discussed the amount of protein a person can have each day. This information should be obtained from a physician or a dietician. However, each recipe gives the nutrient contents( based on USDA Nutrient Database SR16 and Bowes and Church’s Food Values of Portions Commonly Used by Jean A. T. Pennington; and from companies that manufacture various low-protein products).
