Thought I'd start a conversation for sharing chronic illness life hacks, tips, tricks, tools, and advice.
I.e. easy meals, snack bin, pill organization, routines, etc. I hope that makes sense. 💙

    I love pickles. Popcorn is great too because it is usually filling. I eat pretzels from time to time. I usually make a menu and cook one day of the week. I put things away in the fridge or freezer and when it’s time for dinner all I have to do is reheat.

    Kate farms nutrition shakes have been a life saver for me when I can’t tolerate solid foods

    Also clever fox medical journal is really helpful for tracking meds and symptoms and diet and other things you may need for doctors visits.

    I keep drink powder (liquid iv) in my bag and usually a bag of salty potato chips, it's good for extra dizzy spells. Also, compression clothing (socks especially) helps a little

    I usually keep atkins shakes (i don’t like the taste of protein powder and these are great taste-wise and still super high in protein!) around for days when my nausea gets bad and i don’t feel like eating anything but i need something to put on my stomach to help relieve the hunger! I also keep a purse with everything I need for my little emergency go bag near me at all times ready for whatever i need, wherever i need!

    Are nutritional shakes just protein shakes to keep you full or?

  • howdyy

    I’m not 100% but i believe so :)

    @Rei they can be. There are various types. Some are high protein, some include all your vitamins, and some are for absolutely no sugar diets/lifestyles..

    I agree. Homemade nutritional shakes are great! They fill you up. I make ones with spinach as a base ingredient for anemia. My favorite recipie is the spinache avocado banana.

    Huh, I'll have to look into that. I have such trouble getting nutrition since so much food makes me sick, and/or is expensive, and/or is too difficult to prepare.

    The kate farm shakes were recommended by my GI, they have a ton of vitamins and nutrients and also pea protein and she said they can be used as meal replacements when I can’t tolerate food. They also come premade so i just refrigerate and drink!

    Best word of advice, bros before hoes, keep yourself mentally clean 🥸

    Premier protein shakes! They are low sugar and carb but high protein and are super filling. They have the texture of Water and a bunch of different flavors so anyone who is texture/smell/taste sensitive they are friendly. I have a bunch of conditions that limit what I can eat and adhd so I forget to eat frequently and OCD so as long as you can have small amounts of dairy it’s basically the perfect consumable.
