Food for an uncooking sickie
April 28, 2012 7:10 PM Subscribe
I'm struggling with heath issues that make it hard to eat. I can only seem to keep a few things down. I need ideas of food that fit these specifics and super simple directions on how to make them as I'm awful at cooking and don't have the energy to do it.

I can only seem to keep down liquids and small amounts of food that aren't too creamy or thick in texture, or grainy in texture, that aren't meat or rice, that doesn't have a strong odor, or any sort of fishy smell. It can't be in too big of pieces or have a too hard of texture.
I know it is an impossible list to work with. I'm really sorry.
So far I've been living on cheese and crackers and tea. It is wearing a little thin.
Also about once a week I can actually stomach normal food but don't seem to be aware of it until it hits suddenly and then I'm in a position of starving and feeling faint. What I need then is healthy simple food that I can just eat without any preparation.
Further snags: I don't have a lot of money right now. I do not have friends that I can rely on for help. I do live with my mother and she could help but then I would be forced to reveal why I cannot cook or eat right now and that is not an option. I live in small town and any sort of food company that makes frozen food for you to take home and reheat is ridiculously expensive.
