Multiple Sclerosis Friendly Recipes

November 18, 2016

As is customary, every Friday we will provide you with 3 easy to prepare MS friendly recipes to try this weekend.

Baked Yams/Sweet Potatoes

The best way to bake sweet potatoes/yams is to lightly coat them in vegetable oil, pierce ‘em multiple times with a knife, and stick them in a 400°F oven for 45 minutes to an hour. When I baked some tonight, I coated my tubers with melted coconut oil instead of vegetable oil before popping them in my oven.


Pork & Napa Cabbage Soup

This one-pot, umami-packed soup fits the bill and it can be in your mouth in about 30 minutes. It’s inspired by one of my mom’s recipes, and my kids can vouch for the fact that she’s the best cook on the planet. Because I’m way lazier than my mom, I recreated her soup as a hearty one-pot meal packed with meat and veggies. This mama ain’t got time to do more dishes on a busy weeknight. To cut down your hands-on cooking time even more, I’ve even included instructions for how to make this recipe in an electric pressure cooker.


Apple Cinnamon Coconut Cookies

A recipe is only as good as it’s ingredients, so when I came home with pounds of fresh apples that I had picked right from the tree I decided to waste no time and whipped up an endless supply or apple inspired dishes. We pretty much lived on apples for a full week after apple picking. I made home-made apple sauce, apple cider donut holes, and apple cinnamon muffins– just to name a few.

But after a week of recipes and apples that were losing their freshness I began to lose my inspiration for all things apple. That was, until I decided to use apples in a new, unique way… in a cookie! Well these “cookies” actually turned out to be a cross between a cookie and a biscuit but they were delicious and made a great addition to my morning cup of coffee.
