Do Homeless People Eat Right?

I haven’t been eating right for the last few months.  I’ve talked about it before.  When I get free food or if I don’t have enough money to buy the right food, I run into problems.  I have allergies and when I eat food that I’m allergic to like bread products or yogurt (which I love) or cheese etc. I break out and/or get a stomach ache or headache.  Frankly, I haven’t felt physically well lately.

My very good friend C, who has a little place here in town, has offered to feed me sometimes.  She says she ends up throwing a lot of food away because she runs out of places to store it.  She cooks amazing gourmet, organic meals a few times a week.  I have not been taking advantage of her offer for a few reasons.  1.  I feel like a user.  2.  I’m not sure if she’s serious (but she KEEPS saying it!) 3.  She isn’t a reliable source of food on a daily basis.  She doesn’t always cook or she gets busy with outside activities or whatever.

Still, eating at her house a couple or a few times a week will help me feel better I think.  She doesn’t have the allergies I have but she doesn’t eat a lot of foods I’m allergic to so it really works out well when I (rarely so far) eat at her house.

I’m going to try it.  I’m just going to ask, “what’s cooking” everyday and see what happens.  Some days I will get a meal and some days I won’t but at least I will add in some healthier items to my diet.

I’m very blessed.  God has put some wonderful people in my life.  I need to receive my blessings!

    Does C know you are a free sleeper? Maybe she just wants some company.
