Diets for Gout

Thanks to all who replied for your help. I have already tried some of the recipes and have become fairly adept at using TVP (I stay away from Quorn since it seems to be linked to high purine and a bunch of other not so good stuff). I'll need to ask the DR about lentils since some of you recommend them. They are on the no, no list and unfortunately it was something that I only recently "found" before I was diagnosed and did really like them.

What do I miss most? Bacon wrapped filet from our local steakhouse and I am/was a home brewer of beer. Guess I am out of luck for finding "substitutions" for those favorites ;).

Diets for Gout

I recently was diagnosed with gout. I am trying to use diet rather than drugs to help reduce the flares. I have cut out red meat, beer and the other typical foods that cause uric acid. I have become a ovo lacto vegitarian and dont really love it - ugh. Dose anyone have some suggestions for Gout friendly food or a recipe(s) that you really enjoy if you suffer from the same condition.

Where should I go?

Traveling to NYC tomorrow and will be catching the hockey game at MSG before my return trip to DC via Amtrak. I have the option of grabbing a bite to eat before the game (7pm start) or just hanging out in the city and catching the 3am train back and doing a late dinner and bar somewhere. What would you do and where would you go?
