Cooking Dinner When MS Fatigue Gets in the Way

January 29, 2018

The last thing you want to do during a period of hard-hitting fatigue is head out to the supermarket and spend time on your feet prepping and cooking dinner.

Thankfully, today there are many products and services available to help make this process a bit easier for you. Of course, there are always options like take-out or quick frozen meals, but there are a few flaws in always opting for these options. They can be fairly expensive and not the healthiest option for you. With an autoimmune disease like multiple sclerosis you need to be putting the right foods and ingredients into your body. The easiest way to know exactly what you are consuming is to cook the food yourself or with those who know what is best for you.

This process has been made a bit easier for with healthy meal prep services such as HelloFresh, Green Chef, Takeout Kit, etc. Most of these food services offer specific categories that make it easier for you to choose which meals fit to your dietary needs.

HelloFresh, alike most of these recommended meal services, comes along with easy prep and easy directions, making it all around MS friendly.

For example, Green Chef might be the most convenient choice for certain MS patients, especially if you follow a certain diet that may help you maintain your symptoms. All of their food is organic and they have meal categories specific to paleo, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian diets in addition to omnivore and carnivore diets. It is important to consider these options, since the paleo diet and plant-based diets have been found to greatly benefit the symptoms of MS.

If your fatigue comes every now and again and you don’t know how often you would need your meal prepping service, Takeout Kit would be the best option, as all of these meals have a 2-month shelf life. This makes it easier to take on fatigue that might seem to come out of nowhere.

You can choose to subscribe to these meal prep services and schedule regular deliveries or order as you please. Most services offer coupons and discounts for first-time users as well!
