In brief: Decadron (dexamethasone) how.

I assume you are being treated with an oral Decadron (dexamethasone) product.
But even so I am not aware of any relationship between eating and flushing from steroids. That is not to say that steroids can not result in some flushing symptoms but I am not aware of a relationship to eating unless the food is one that might cause flushing and the steroids exacerbate the phenomenon.
