Episode Five

Food is Both Your Enemy and Your Friend

On this episode of the Caregiver’s Guide to Cancer, we’re talking about food. Food is one of the biggest struggles for cancer patients and their caregivers.

What a cancer patient can eat one day, makes them sick the next. They feel awful and the caregiver is becoming a short order cook. No one has time for that!

Here we’re sharing a few tips that worked for us. Yes, we discovered them the hard way. We tried several things and finally, landed on a few that kept Jose eating and didn’t require me to be in the kitchen all day. Sadly, you’ll have to find out what works for you through a bit of trial and error. 

We did discover that having certain foods handy at all times really helped cut down the frustration and prep time of meal time. This is a great practice. You may be able to adopt the practice but adjust the types of foods based on what your loved one can consistently eat.  Take note of what they can consistently eat and stock up on that. Variety of meals are less important right now. What’s most imporant is consumption.


Our Gift to You
