A cup of soup can go a long way to helping you stay strong and nourished, it’s enjoyable and easy to digest and a comfort food during the cold weather. Homemade soups are fabulous suggestion for those wanting to prepare food for a cancer patient. Look for recipes packed with immunity-boosting ingredients, including turmeric, miso, broccoli, barley and Greek yoghurt. Remember to package in smaller portions as large meals can be overwhelming. Also puree if the patient is having problems swallowing.
For those cooking for yourselves get your slow cooker out and prep the food when you feel less fatigued. Any veggies and lentils are a great base for hearty and healthy soups. You can then leave it to cook while you rest. No problems with leaving a pot on the stove if you fall asleep.
My go-to recipe at present is NewIdeaFood’s Flu-Fighting Chicken and Vegetable Soup with ginger, garlic and turmeric. All great for fighting off the flu. It’s easy, prep time 5 minutes and cook for 40 minutes.
Always consult your medical team if you are having eating difficulties.
