Joyful Nourishment

Eating right can make a difference to how you feel. We realise it can be hard to find the energy to eat when you're grieving.

Here are some ideas and resources you could try:

  • Write down what you're going to eat - This can help to ensure you're getting enough of everything and not skipping meals.
  • Don't get down on yourself. If having a piece of toast for dinner is what is going to get you through, that is okay.
  • If you enjoy cooking, take the time to find a recipe you've always wanted to make, then get to the grocery store and buy what you need. If you find it hard to head instore, shop online.
  • If you're not a big cook, you could always try a food delivery service like Woop or Bargain Box, or even a ready-made service like Eat.
  • Make big servings and freeze them for those days where you don't feel like cooking.
  • Invite a friend over for dinner or head out (if you're feeling up to it).
