Processed Food

It has become more and more difficult to cook, clean and care for myself.  I can't stand but a couple minutes, my hands have become pretty weak, so cutting and chopping is a pain (HAHAHA!).  I am having to resort to processed and or convenience foods to eat.  This just galls me to no end, because that was one of the biggest changes I made to lose weight...stop eating processed food.

Sooo, I am on the hunt for healthy processed food.  Is that an oxymoron?  Of course, there are bagged salads, but I also found  precut fresh vegetables and fruit.  Eggbeaters are also helpful.  Does anyone out there in bloggy land have any suggestions?  I sure would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks for reading!  <3


  1. Ask your doctor for a referral to an occupational therapist. They will help you gain strength, adapt your house for easier living and let you know about adaptive equipment for cooking, chopping, etc.

  2. I am so sorry you are suffering! Agreed, maybe some physical therapy would help.

    As for convenience food I agree, the pre-cut veggies and fruits and bagged salads are the best. Greek yogurt cups are good for protein. Try boiling a bunch of eggs and having them in the fridge. Tuna pouches are easy. Low fat cottage cheese, Rotisserie chicken (salty but convenient), fresh berries, and nuts. Hope you start feeling better soon.
