Fatigue and Meal preparation

No energy? Too fatigued to cook?  You may find you’re struggling to cook your meals and are even too tired to eat.

Try to plan ahead. If you have a freezer, prepare food while you are feeling active and freeze it for when you’re fatigued. There are many quick nourishing convenience foods and ready meals available now. If give family and friends  offer help suggest doing some shopping or cooking for you.

If you really can’t face eating, try a nourishing drink such as smoothies by blending bananas, peaches, strawberries or other soft fruit (fresh or frozen) with fortified milk, fruit juice, ice cream or yoghurt in a liquidiser or blender.

If you feel you need more help at home with your cooking or eating, tell your medical team. They may be able to arrange for you to have meals delivered such as meals on wheels.
