This past week, I have been realizing the need to be wise and mindful of what I am consuming both in the form of beverages and food. I am losing weight and moving more during the course of the week and it has been better as well.
When an autistic person or anyone with a disability moves out on their own, many times, they rely on the assistance of community help. Sometimes items in the supplement can contain food that doesn’t have directions for preparation of that item. This can make an autistic person or anyone who lacks such skills of preparing foods that should be known very confusing,
Incorporating new foods into one’s diet may not be the easiest for both the one caring for the autistic person and the autistic person nor the autistic person themselves. We as autistics carry great worry if we will like it or not and we are totally afraid of whether it will make us institute our gag reflexes if we don’t like it.
It’s not that I can’t cook, in fact when I do it, I do it very well that I do enjoy it allot. Even since moving to this present location, I tolerate the cleanup better than I did before. I don’t know whether it’s a better kitchen setup or what it is, it just seems to work better all around. Over time, I have been exposed to many foods and I have taken many home economics courses in my school career. I am just that, lazy or too over caring if dinner will turn out right, etc. Yes, being on my own gives the freedom and power to order what I want from the grocery store.
