Food preparation and healthy eating with RA

You wake up one day and realise that how you are eating is being controlled by Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is not acceptable but what can you do?


I can no longer grate vegetables or chop vegetables for very long, due to pain, so the way we eat has changed over time to a less healthy diet. It is easy to pop on a piece of toast or heat up a frozen pie but these are not healthy options especially for someone with a chronic pain disease. I need to consider some healthy and easy to prepare options. This is why I eat lots of yoghurt and fruit and just grab a carrot


This needs more thought. I am reviewing some dietary options at help immune and I will get back to you on this one.

In the meantime, any suggestions for easy to prepare healthy food as I have 3 growing teenagers at home?

Hello, I can empathize with your pain as I also have rheumatoid arthritis. It is true that pacing yourself is the key to managing the pain of the disease. I have realized that I need to decrease my activity when my body gives me the signal.
Some dietary guidelines I follow is to avoid gluten and other inflammatory foods.
I have listed some recipies on my blog

Yours in Good Health
