Our expert says:
I do not have an example of a low-purine diet on this Website, but if you have a list of foods that should be avoided, then you can compile meals from all the remaining foods (e.g. fruit, vegetables, milk and dairy, eggs, grains, cereals and fats and oils). For example: breakfast could consist of fruit juice or boiled or fresh fruit, plus porridge with milk or yoghurt and toast with jam and a hot beverage. If you find it problematic to compile menus that avoid purines then take your dear Gran to see a dietitian who will assist you with food choices for her while taking her gout and other factors such as problems with chewing into account (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area).
