My ability to cook for myself varies. Some weeks I'm ok. Some weeks I'm not. Sometimes I'm able to cook up something that is freezable, and enough of it to put in the freezer. So I have 2/3 meals in there right now. I live in a flat share and my housemates are not responsible for helping me with food. I don't have a partner, or family to look after me closely. Applying for benefits or a carer is beyond me right now. Several of my friends have been offering to cook for me or give me portions to put in the freezer. However, I get overwhelmed with planning - planning to get help from others gives me PEM! There's the practical detail bit to think about, and also the social grace needed to receive help gratefully and politely. Both bits are beyond me most of the time. I would like to create some sort of monthly plan where I schedule to receive food from friends. That way I will not have so much food in my fridge or freezer that I'm unable to eat it before it goes off (that happened this week - food waste really stresses me out.) I eat lightly. Has anyone done this? Do you have any tips about how to plan this? I would love to hear your way of doing it, if so. I'm worried that I'm not eating enough veg. I'm doing ok but it's not ideal. I'm not on top of whether certain food affects my symptoms, and this is something I would like to learn about soon. I feel like this is a variable I'd need to plan around and I don't know how to approach it yet. I want to eat a balanced diet, and if I'm asking other people to cook for me on occasion, I feel like I ought to give them some guidelines about what I should eat. Any tips on this? There's a great social enterprise called Casserole Club: https://www.casseroleclub.com It's not operating where I live. They get neighbours to deliver home cooked food to people that can't cook. I would really like something like this. It's affordable, and I'd get home cooked food instead of microwave food. Does anyone know of any equivalent social enterprises or charities that deliver home cooked food?
