When you’re chronically ill, mentally unwell, and/or disabled – you might have issues with food.
Whether it’s cooking a full meal, or just eating regularly. So, I want to remind you of this:
If you’re struggling to make a meal, or don’t have the energy to make food regularly: buy ready meals – Iceland have some that are £1 a piece. Make sandwiches – fill it with whatever you like. If you have the money for a takeaway – do it.
We shouldn’t be shamed for eating premade food, eating sandwiches for three days in a row, or living off of takeaways when we’re just trying to survive. The most important part is that you’re giving your body sustenance.
So, please: go get something to eat, anything to eat. Give your body energy so that it can better serve you.
Now, I’m going to go have a packet of microwave rice with tuna, tomatoes, cheese, and mayo mixed in… Yes, it sounds sad – but it’s the best I can do, and it gives me the fats, carbs, and protein I need.
Fuel is fuel.
