Lily Posted August 27, 2005 Share Posted August 27, 2005 Hello! I'm ADD, only taking Ritalin right now. I'm down to 100lbs from 130lbs and HAFTA HAFTA EAT. I don't have much appetite, and often forget to eat, or remember but don't bother. At work I force myself to invite people to lunch so that I'm required to eat something. Another friend invites me to her house several times a week and feeds me. I'm really fortunate and grateful to have support! BUT! In the morning, or weekends or weeknights when I'm on my own. I can't find the appetite or energy to cook ANYTHING. (or, y'know, I go shopping, spend 2 hours in the supermarket, buy all this stuff, come home and leave it on the kitchen table for a few days until it spoils...) What do people keep on hand to feed themselves with? 1. Ensure (nutritional drink) is only available with a prescription, and comes in gross tin cans in barely palatable vanilla, grody strawberry, and downright disgusting coffee flavors. 2. They have neato squeeze-packs of jello-type supplements for people on the go, but the sugar content sends me thru the roof! 3. Cereal...instant noodles...frozen fruit/juice for a smoothie maybe. Dubious nutritional value tho. Any good-for-you standbys that I can keep for emergencies? I'm up to my ears in recipies, but not motivated enough to use them. HELP.
