Big Meals and Entrees
Here you will find all of our Big meals, and Entrees. These are our larger meals that those in with less severe side-effects will enjoy and love the taste of.
Small Meals, Snacks and Sides
Our Small Meals, Snacks, and Sides are perfect small plates for those with moderate treatment side-effects! Almost all of these recipes can be made ahead, and pre-portioned into quick on the go snacks.
Sauces are the perfect finish for any high-end dining experience. But with cancer treatments they act in a secondary capacity: making your dishes more palatable to the cancer fighter. Sauces can make food more moist, cover pungent odors, reduce metallic tastes, and make food more visually appealing.
Soups and Stews
Our Soups and Stews are perfect for those who have severe treatment side-effects. Soft textures keep from agitating mouth sores, while vinegar masks metallic tastes. All of these soup are packed full of nutrients, so if you can only get a few bites in you still get a good spread of vital nutrients.
Our Smoothies are perfect for those who have severe treatment side-effects. Soft textures keep from agitating mouth sores, while citrus flavors mask metallic tastes.
