My mother is coming for Christmas and bringing her multiple food issues with her. Apologies in advance, I can feel a rant rapidly approaching....... I hate to sound insensitive, but she really is her own worst enemy, and will frequently eat things that she knows will cause her to have "problems"........and we have to suffer the consequences!!! She had gastric surgery a few years ago to remove a tumour, but has had issues with food for many, many years. I have a few things I can't eat, so just avoid them and I have tried many times to gently suggest she avoids her trigger foods, but she just ignores all I say. Each time we see her she tells me "I've realised I can't eat xyz......." but that only lasts until the next meal when she will contradict all she has said. In the past, I have just let her get on with it and felt if she were prepared to make herself ill then it was her doing, but it really is very unpleasant to live with and she is coming to stay with my family for nearly a week!!! ANYWAY, (sorry rant over now) what can I put on her plate on Christmas Day?! I have decided that I will take control by only offering hopefully suitable foods......honestly, it's worse than feeding a small child!!! Thank you for bearing with me on this. All suggestions welcome!
