Jake – what do you like to eat and where are you getting your food now?
Jump to this post
What I like I can’t have. I’ve been eating salad the last couple days but thankfully it’s gone. I like meat and potatoes like beef, pork, poultry, lamb chops, lasagna (not much cheese allowed and nothing canned packaged or frozen) and beans, lentils, stuffed bell peppers. It’s stressful just thinking about cooking, I can’t even think of all the things I like. I’m supposed to eat lots of yucky fresh veggies. If I get the courage I’d like to stuff a green red yellow orange white & blue bell pepper but that would be quite an intense project. Ya know, life’s funny, back in the day when I had a feeding tube which I hated from what I’m told, I liked to cook, now I might really like it. I’ll probably have a tuna sandwich for dinner, oh wow I’m so excited!!! Some Fritos would be good but not allowed. Basically I’m suppose to eat what I consider garbage. Anything I’m allowed usually has to be cooked so you know where that leaves me. Been having cereal dry since I ran out of milk. Oh the agony of it all.
