 I feel too weak to cook but can’t afford to order out every night.  What do you suggest?

I eat things such as quesadillas or sandwiches alot. Fast and easy things to make. Hope that helps, someone else will be along soon with better ideas. And welcome to Healingwell!

chicken or fish in the oven. you dont need much in the form of seasoning to make them taste good, and for most of us can only tolerate bland things any way. 15-20 min (depending on the temp) and its done. totally easy. oatmeal. yogurt. smoothies. soups. anything in the blender that you can liquefy. vegetables taste good off the grill and all you need is some salt, pepper, and extra virgin olive oil. these can cook while your meat is on it too. and all meat really needs is salt, pepper, and garlic salt. turn once half way through and its done. any vegetable dunked in almond butter, tzatziki, or humus. cheese. granola. hard boiled eggs (you can make a bunch at once and then save them).

Boiled eggs are great for chronnies. keep yoghurt in your fridge. greek yoghurt is great. Boxed soups, cheeses (cottage and normal) and miso soup, and also I love frankfurts, one thing i can tolerate and enjoy eating too!
