Help! I'm a foodie trapped in a family with weird diet issues!

ferris91 | Aug 6, 2010 01:22 AM

Okay, I'm a college student who spends breaks at home with my parents. My dad has heart issues, so things need to be low-sodium and low-cholesterol. He can't eat anything too heavy too late because it gives him heartburn He also can't eat grapefruit. My mom is pre-diabetic, so things need to be low in simple sugars (ie: whole wheat). She's also taking a medication that makes it hard to eat anything too heavy (ie: basic pesto = too heavy). Spicy food and garlic have suddenly become distasteful and bacon makes her barf. Most of this stuff is fairly recent. I was so excited to eat things that didn't come out of my dining hall (AWFUL!!!!) but now I'm bored. Help? Thanks!
