Show Notes:

How can I get the right nutrition while on prednisone?

  • You’re on prednisone because you’re unwell. So start from a place of grace – you’re healing.
  • Give yourself Grace: you’re on a prescription drug that you need for an important reason

Avoid sugar & salt: Toss all the junk food out

  • Candy, other sweets
  • Chips
  • Cookies, desserts
  • Sweetened beverages
  • Cereal
  • Instant dinners

Give Nutrients Needed:

  • Reframe meals: start with planning veggies
    • Find what’s on sale and plan to cook that
    • Sale = in season, so higher nutritional value
  • Plan: hardest part of eating well is preventing hunger binges.
  • Prepare healthy snacks:
    • Dried apricots
    • Almonds
  • Use spices to replace salt

Get the tools you need

  • Instant Pot for easy veggies and whole grains
