What can I eat that’s appealing but easy to eat? I’m doing a Tesco shop. I’m hoping for lots of vitamins but cba to plan or prepare.

I like the Covent garden ones

CakeNinja Mon 20-Nov-17 18:12:44

Stir fry?

PatriciaHolm Mon 20-Nov-17 18:13:25

Mash, baked beans, grated cheese, noodles

PurplePillowCase Mon 20-Nov-17 18:14:48

what kind of ill?
no appetite?
digestive issues?
chewing issues?

RoganJosh Mon 20-Nov-17 18:16:48

Shingles and incipient constipation from codeine! blush
Kind of affecting my botheredness to eat too.

PurplePillowCase Mon 20-Nov-17 18:18:22

poor you.
then I would go for shepherds pie or similar.
add some carrots or sweetcorn.

Pasta dishes

RoganJosh Mon 20-Nov-17 18:19:07

Thank you everyone. I think what I feel like eating isn’t quite what I should be eating!

CakeNinja Mon 20-Nov-17 18:21:12

Bah, I had shingles recently too, rubbish!
Didn't take codeine though, that stuff is renowned for its side effects! Just eat what you fancy for now.
Get well soon. flowers

PurplePillowCase Mon 20-Nov-17 18:22:06

nah, eat what you fancy and add some veg for fibre & vitamins

Ginfiend Mon 20-Nov-17 18:23:24

Feeling rotten here too
I was nearly in tears in M&S as there was too much choice (!)
I went for what I fancied- mac and cheese with bacon bits and some satsumas

TheSpottedZebra Mon 20-Nov-17 18:23:55

Get some lactulose, and then some of whatever else you fancy.

Apileofballyhoo Mon 20-Nov-17 18:24:23

Soup and stick some ground linseed in it.

NamasteNiki Mon 20-Nov-17 18:24:58

I had my wisdom teeth out last week.
In pain, cant open my mouth, cant eat.

If i see one more plate of mashed potato I'll kill someone.

NamasteNiki Mon 20-Nov-17 18:25:09

Not literally.

Barley risotto is easy, comforting and nutritious.

A lovely soup, leek and potato or pea and mint with some seeded bread.

YBR Mon 20-Nov-17 18:43:22

NamasteNiki I think my diet following the same was yoghurt, banana, soup and custard!

Crunchymum Mon 20-Nov-17 18:44:50

If you are ill, listen to your body and eat what you fancy.

MollyHuaCha Mon 20-Nov-17 18:52:07

Do you fancy some nice prepared fruit? Easy to eat if someone has perked and sliced it for you. Also pots of yoghurt, custard, jelly maybe if you like sweet things.

RoganJosh Mon 20-Nov-17 19:28:43

I know what you mean about the codeine, Ninja , my GP suggested a prescription for it and I’d said I’d rather not, having seen all of two documentaries recently about opiate addcition and therefore being an expert. wink She did suggest that I’m more at risk of the long term nerve hurting syndrome thing if I don’t keep the pain under some control though, so I’ve caved. Might try just the paracetamol for now though.

RoganJosh Mon 20-Nov-17 19:29:21

Ow Niki , hope you are able to eat something else soon!

RoganJosh Mon 20-Nov-17 19:30:54

Thanks again everyone, I have decided noodles are where it’s at and ordered a selection to try. I used to live on blue dragon chilli and chicken which aren’t made any more so I’m trying a load more. And got some soups ordered and fruit. Still working on it!

DramaInPajamas07 Mon 20-Nov-17 20:21:07

Im eating pasta and grated cheese. Soft, easy to make.

--and some milk of magnesia to take care of the constipation from

I will also eat some tinned pears as they are actually softer than fresh pear.

DramaInPajamas07 Mon 20-Nov-17 20:22:17

Damn strike thru fail. But ill and cant eat much too. Feel better everyone.
