Since being diagnosed with gastritis and also discovering that I'm having some hypo episodes that I'm not always aware of, my Dr has advised me that I need to eat more frequently. This is going to be a challenge for me because I get involved in what I'm doing and often just forget to eat. This is something I really need to be serious about. I need to incorporate more protein into these "mini meals" and build up a sufficient collection of recipes that I won't get bored and backslide. So I guess I'll be spending some time cruising the internet for good recipes. Any ideas from my friends will be gratefully accepted.

I keep most of mine pretty simple. Meat and veggie, meat and veggie, meat and veggie. I use lots of spices to change things up and good healthy fats to make them rich and flavorful.

So do smaller more frequent meals help with the gasteritis?

Yes. If I eat a big meal, it gets really uncomfortable. I seem to get really full more quickly these days. Maybe that's just getting older though.

Most meats are high in protein. Since I do not use recipes and cook by taste and look, recipes are not my go to thing. I even have a collection of recipes.

I do the same thing, I get involved in something and I look it is past time for me to eat something. I keep sugar free pudding or regular applesauce or something I can grab and eat.

Good luck
