Struggling with Lyme disease

Cooking for the muscle and energy impaired


If you’re anything like me, then cooking anything just seems like waaaay too much work.  If a recipe has more than a handful of ingredients or a handful of steps, I most likely will get exhausted just thinking about it.  With the memory problems, and the inability to concentrate, even the most basic tasks seem overwhelming.  Talking with people about what I can no longer eat can sometimes result in them saying “oh, well, you can make that yourself!  Just do A, B, C, D, E…”.  Yeah, I’m not gonna do that much less remember it!

Not only that, but if you grew up in a household like mine, you now have to pretty much throw out every single recipe you got from your mother along the way.  Unless you’re a good cook (which I’m not) and are able to adapt them to the nightshade free diet.  I live in Minnesota, USA, and everything my mother made seems to have potatoes or paprika in it.  You know, because paprika makes those beige meals seem more exciting.  Yeah, thanks.

So, I’m going to do my best to gather all of my basic recipes together for those of you who are exhausted or just plain cooking impaired – like me!  :-)
