What do I eat? or more specifically, what do I cook so that I can follow my dietitian’s advice and eat more muscle repairing protein, good fats to maintain my weight, and nutrient dense food to ensure I am meeting my daily requirements.
The food markets don’t have an aisle that says “get your protein here”. So what do you do? You can guess, use trial and error, find resources here and there or you could join a like minded culinary community that provides many of the answers you are looking for. My purpose in building this community is to help people transition from a PEG and back to oral eating, or, just to expand their repertoire of food in their PEG in a safe and nutritional way. I wanted a better way, a community of people who want to use whole food as their medicine and get back to oral eating as soon as they can. What other complementary therapies are out there to assist the transition and set you up for your best version of you in the future?
I found the transition from PEG tube to mouth quite difficult and I know about food!
If, like me, you are navigating this journey on your own, this community is here to support your food journey be that both physically and emotionally. Whether you suffer food intolerance, anxiety, trauma, what you “eat” plays a big part of your healing and general quality of life.
What happens when you get sick of ice cream? What do you do when you eat alone? What happens when you don’t feel like food, dread meal times, have dry mouth, mucous, constipation, allergies to commercially prepared foods?
What if there was one place you could go to get food ideas, recipes, shopping lists, tips, tricks to make that all important step toward eating real food again?
Step by step guides, lists of items you would need to help in your transition? Cutting through the clutter with direct access to the best information, support services and forum groups with others that can and have shared your journey.
Providing you with the tools to take charge of your own nutrition. Supporting your caregiver by providing ideas to help them help you? Teaching you how to make basic, nutritious meals that form the back bone of your new feeding journey.
