I was very sick with pancreatitis from 1989-1992. I got sick with pancreatitis because I lived vegetarian and I ate too much fruit. Most fruit have a lot of sugar and now I limit it to usually 1 to a max of 2 cups per day. I have to be extremely careful with black berries and sweet fruits like oranges, peaches etc. And also with bread. I used to love French baguette or soft Pretzels.

I stay away from sugar, bread and everything that contains starches as well as alcohol and deserts, cakes etc.

Once a day I have a smoothie with a few strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, goat milk and stevia to satisfy my "sweet tooth". Otherwise I eat a lot of salads with lettuce and I add cabbage /bell peppers/carrots/tomatoes etc whatever is in my yard / fridge. My energy and concentration is best with a mixed salad and meat, like some chicken or fish, beef or lamb. In the winter time I cook often vegetable soups or miso soup to stay warm and I steam a lot of veggies. I eat goat or sheep cheese as desert to keep me longer satisfied. I drink lots of water and unsweet ice tea or hot tea. Once in a while I have a glass of dry wine. Unsweet black or green tea and lettuce is very good for the pancreas because of its "bitter" taste.

I also take every day twice baking soda mixed in water, which prevents beforehand any trouble with the pancreas. My salad dressing consists of organic apple cider vinegar, Herba mare (= salt herbmix available at health food stores or online) and flax seed oil (refrigerated).

Since I am on this "diet", I never had any trouble with the pancreas again, and my "genetically extremely high cholesterol level" has been normal ever since. This diet freed me also from weight problems and cravings.
