    Default How to perk up an appetite?

    Yes I know I have posted recently (perhaps in ASD and not here) about
    feeling like I was starving and also craving chocolate. But now? I just
    don't want to eat at all. Nothing sounds good to me. Nothing at all. I am
    forcing myself to eat. I have not had any hypos in the past couple of days.
    In fact most of my numbers have been normal, but... I did have to push
    myself to eat a snack between meals. I feel if I did not do this I would
    have actually had a hypo.

    Yesterday we ate at my favorite Mexican place. I had the black bean soup
    like I usually do. It is one of my favorite foods and it tasted very good.
    But... I just didn't want to eat it!

    Then for dinner we went to Outback Steakhouse. Now I must say this is a
    place I would never want to eat at even if paid. I have put it off ever
    since we moved here but my husband *really* wants to eat there. Angela and
    I were planning to have his birthday there but now it looks like he might be
    moving away again. Don't want to say too much since things are still up in
    the air. Anyway... We were looking for a different place to eat and it is
    tough to find places where Angela can get what she needs. And the Alice
    Springs chicken with sweet potato fries fit the bill.

    My husband really enjoyed his meal. So I guess that was good. Angela
    picked the mushrooms and cheese off her food and I realized that I should
    have ordered her the larger portion. The piece of chicken she got was like
    4 bites. But other than that she enjoyed it.

    My parents and I all had burgers. I had mine without the bun. But the meat
    patty had absolutely no flavor to me and rather an off texture. It was as
    though they had taken a pate style cat food and fried it in a patty or
    something. My parents made no comment about their meal other than that it
    wasn't as expensive as they thought it was going to be. But they didn't
    finish their food either. We didn't have salads because they wanted almost
    $15 for a wedge of lettuce that came with some other stuff that I would have
    asked to be left off. So a rather dismal meal for me.

    Tonight I made taco salads for dinner. Made the same exact ones last Sunday
    and enjoyed mine. But tonight? I just didn't want to eat it. Kept putting
    it off until I feared I might go hypo. I did manage to eat it but I didn't
    enjoy it one bit.

    I also had part of a bag of popcorn at Target. I find if I don't eat that I
    will go hypo. But we do a lot of walking (a lot for me) on Sundays. Not
    only did I not enjoy the popcorn but I didn't even enjoy the smell of it.
    One of the first things I normally do when I walk into Target is sniff the
    air to see if they have popcorn. I am always disappointed when the popcorn
    machine is broken.

    And now I am having to force myself to eat my snack. Nothing sounded good.
    I made mashed potatoes. They don't taste good to me. They just taste salty
    and they are made exactly like how I always make them. *sigh*

    While the water for the potatoes was boiling I made a couple of pastrami
    sandwiches for my husband. That seemed to even staunch my appetite further.
    The pastrami smelled icky to me. Now granted I haven't eaten any since I
    was in Jr. High. I went through one school year eating nothing but pastrami
    sandwiches for lunch. So I did like it at one point. But apparently not
    now.

    I even had trouble coming up with a menu for the week and doing the grocery
    shopping because literally nothing appealed to me.

    Angela wasn't much help either. Her new thing is making smoothies that she
    can consume. She is mainly using veggies. Tonight's had spinach and
    cucumber. Some frozen berries, plain Greek yogurt and a little milk to thin
    it down. As far as she is concerned she can eat smoothies three times a day
    and doesn't need anything else.

    I don't know how I got into this rut. Perhaps this is a sign that I am
    getting sick or something? I do feel pretty good except for an itchy patch
    of something on my forehead. Either psoriasis or eczema (I have both and
    not sure which), an itchy bug bite on my wrist (probably spider) and I am
    not liking our strangely high humidity. That is my new pet thing. Watching
    the humidity. Seems it has been 76% or higher for weeks now. Currently at
    88% and it feels quite muggy. Thankfully it's not hot. Just oddly damp.

    I will keep forcing myself to eat because I know that I have to. But how
    can I make myself *want* to eat?

    Just like your ravenous appetite recently, this too shall pass. It just
    seems to all come and go with you.

    There is a nice recipe for a dairy soup that Amge;la might ike.

    Yogurt-Cucumber Soup(for one or two)

    1C Plain Yougrt
    1 small cuke
    pinch salt
    garlic(optional)
    1 tsp chopped fress dill or mint
    Squirt of freshlemon juice

    Put in blender and whap. Serve , if esired, with some fresh mint leaved
    on top.

    Easy and delicious, particularly in the summer.

    Actually I was looking up side effects of Metoclopramide which I take for
    gastroparesis and it can cause lack of appetite. I am stopping it as of
    tonight so we'll see...

    Looks nearly identical to the Tzatziki sauce for falafels. We will often
    just salt the cucumbers for a couple of hours, and then thoroughly rinse
    the cucumber to get the salt out, and eat as is. It is very refreshing.

    It is smilar, but thinner. the original recipe, which I cut down for
    Angela, cal for a quart of plain yogurt and 2-4 cukes depending
    on their size and no saltig of the cukes to reduce liquid in them. It
    makes a mildly think soup, not a sauce. I imagine that if ou salted the
    cukes first, then rinsed and drained and used a thick Greek yorut you
    wouldcom closer t the tzatzoki sauce I first encountered in Greece, served
    with string beans. It ws favored with mints and, of ocurse, garlic adn
    lemon.(I got the recie from our wonderfu tour guide.)

    To be fair, I did say, "nearly". None the less, a very refreshing sauce,
    that so far I've only used on falafels. Letting the Tzatziki sauce sit a
    day or so does make the flavor better, IMHO.

    I've not been to Greece. Is the the Tzatziki sauce regional, or
    universal in Greece?

    I'm "told" that cannabis can do wonders for poor appetites.

    But it's expensive and IIRC it only ever did that to me once. Back in the
    70's. I ate a whole platter of crab wontons. I don't even like crab.

    Maybe a little chocolate to get you in the mood ;O)

    Anyway, if your in a state that has it available for medical reasons you
    might check it out. Remember, you're looking for a therapeutic dose.
    More than that, and you risk having fun.

    Ugh, no! Chocolate messes with my GERD so bad I wouldn't even dream of
    eating it.
