Emily and I were at a restaurant recently where the table-top was too low, it didn’t allow Emily’s powered wheelchair to get underneath. Four blocks of wood can solve this problem immediately, lifting the table up and making it accessible in an easy fix ….so let’s raise tables and awareness.
Today we decided on a vegetarian curry for dinner using fresh ingredients, recipe below. Cooking healthily for Emily, and my family, is always uppermost in my mind when meal planning. I think about nutrition and calories as Emily needs lots of vitamins and minerals with only 1200 calories (5000 Kilojoules) a day. Eating enough food to provide valuable energy without excess which would lead to weight gain. Emily, as a wheelchair user, has to be more careful than others not to consume more than she requires. At home I can cook with fresh ingredients and limit processed foods, sugar and salt but what healthy options exist when we are out and about in restaurants?
