I am gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free.
I have severe depression and most days do not have the energy nor inclination to cook from scratch like I usually do. Eating at or ordering from restaurants gives me too much anxiety about CC that it's not worth it, unless the entire place is gluten-free.
I've been eating crap like rice cakes, bologna, sausage, chips, sometimes store-bought guacomole. sometimes I bake chicken or splurge on coconut-milk ice cream.
I don't own a microwave.
I'm taking a food-based multi to try and address any problems with malnutrition. sometimes I don't eat vegetables in days.
food budget is a maximum of $350/month, less if my depression keeps affecting my ability to work.
I'm just trying to hold on until a series of appointments where I can begin getting treatment.
