Preparing Thanksgiving dinner can take a lot of work, even more so for a person with arthritis. Preparing a whole Thanksgiving dinner can seem hopeless to some with arthritis, because it can be difficult to get everything done in time and still have time to rest your aching joints. So my tip this week is something we do in my own family to make it less stressful. Sit down and write out your menu, then assign one food item to each guest to bring. Such as, maybe have one guest bring a pumpkin pie and have another bring a green bean casserole. Or you can even talk to each of your guests and just let them tell you what they would like to bring. That way all you have to worry about is the turkey and the little things.
Try planning your meals at the beginning of each week and also make your grocery list out at the same time.
I take a medication that needs to be refrigerated daily. I am planning a trip to Europe and need to know what I can buy for keeping my medication cool throughout my stay. There will be no refrigerator in the room.
Can you give me 4 of the best kitchen aids for arthritis sufferers. I am giving a food demo on Dec 1st in NZ and would like to hear of some devices to make chopping vegs and opening cans etc.
