I am looking for ideas for ways or food types that are at least palatable during chemo.

It was suggested that if it’s too sweet use salt.

Also eat thing you don’t normally like they might taste good now.

I was told to use plastic utensils as some chemo. meds. can cause metallic utensils to make things taste worse.

I have gone through 9 sessions of chemo now and I have been eating creamy soups and hot cereal. The family has been experimenting with puréeing different foods. They came up with
This apple blueberry and spinach purée that is pretty good. We have puréed chili and bean soups,squash and clam chowder. Most yogurts are also good. We found that part of the issue is texture not taste. I hope this helps and if you come up with any ideas pass them along. Hots sauce also helps liketabasco or tapitio and any brand of chipotle sauce.
