Cooking is one of those things that we all say we either love or hate doing, can or cannot do! But I can do it and I love it when I create something that fills my belly and tastes amazing it makes me want to cook something else. Even if I just ate just to eat it for later, LOL. The problem is that with MG I struggle to make certain dishes especially baking dishes because it can require a lot of mixing and mashing. I end up not being able to be as authentic as I would like and that can taint ‘clean’ my dish is. I like to cook healthy and I like to know what is going into my food. Though I do not always garden my dad does sometimes and so do some friends and they give us fresh veggies and fruits at times.
With MG repetitive motions cause extreme fatigue and results in what I call the dead muscle syndrome. I end up with a muscle that was used too much unable to be used again for hours and sometimes not properly for days. If it was my hand or wrist I am in trouble because then I cannot properly use it for a days at a time and your hands are needed for quite a lot of things aren’t they. I struggle to open drinks, cars, put on my clothes, push up on things, pull the seat belt, do my hair, brush my teeth, and the list goes on. My hand begins to tremble just trying to hold carrot.
I have bought more tools to help me. Many people buy tools they never use in their kitchen because they either do not cook often or they just do not use them. I on the other hand have no choice if I am to be able to function in normal life. I want to have it all. So my mom heard my cry when I said I was going to buy a mixer and beat me to the punch, lol. She bought me a new blender and a food processor. I can hardly wait for it to get here. I already have the ingredients for a no bake peanut butter pie!
Next few things on the menu with be some dips, hummus, and stuffed meats! YUM!
