Cooking great fructose-free food doesn’t have to be difficult. You just need to know the right recipes.

I totally understand that you are fed up with such a restricted diet. Have you looked into low-fodmap? I have compiled some information about that diet: https://www.fructohelp.com/low-fodmap-diet/ Basically, it is gluten-free, low in fructose and without lactose-containing foods. You can find some cookbook recommendations on the linked page above. Maybe they can give you some inspiration on how to spice up your meal plan. Hope I could help you with that.
