I'm so frustrated... I am finding it very painful to peel potatoes because I hande arthritis in both thumb joints. What do you use?
Problems in the kitchen: I'm so frustrated... - Arthritis Action
I peel things carrots and potatoes etc with a cheese slicer. it has a handle and a round shaped head and I can pull it down along things rather than hold tightly.
The peel is nutritious so you could just leave it on (unless its green!)? I hardly ever peel cause I like the taste and rustic look but sometimes boil to slide the skin off if doing a mash.
A manual peeler that slides away from you or down is easier than round ones you have to grip, and you can get electric peelers too on amazon.
I bought a spriralizer from Argos a while ago for around £15 or so for Zucchini salads and that helps for lots of vegetables...makes them look fancy too
Peeling under very warm running water helps me as does applying asper crème with rubber gloves. Having someone else peel your potatoes also works well.
I have arthritis in the thumbs as well. I have found that taking high strength Turmeric with Black Pepper helps. As does the occasional free trip to the local osteopath courtesy of Arthritis Action (that reminds me I must book another appointment!)
I just slice and eat peelings too, always heard that's where the nutrients are
You could try either manual or electric potato peelers ??
I don’t peel them! I just scrub them well and make whatever with the peels on. The skin adds extra nutrients and flavors. Gave up peeling cucumbers etc., for the same reasons as you. If I clean them well, the skin is edible so why bother?
I recently purchased a peeler corer from Amazon and it's the next best thing to sliced bread. And it was very inexpensive. I've used it for apples and potatoes. But they also show a carrot.
So I ain't alone in this struggle??? First it was my left thumb that felt the pain, after my TAH-BSO. Next am feeling my right thumb now. Sometimes I feel my fingers going numb when I sleep on the support of my arm. I got to hang the hand down for circulation.
Question: Which is worst- the uterine bleeding ....or the post-op side effects???😞😞🙅🙅🙅
Somebody tell me pls.
