One of my friends/colleagues is currently nursing her husband through cancer treatment. His recent surgery was successful, and he starts chemotherapy soon, but he is on a VERY restricted diet due to his ileostomy. His wife (my co-worker and friend) was recently discussing with me the challenge of finding creativity and flavor with very limited food choices. I responded, “I’m GREAT with recipes! Send me a list of his food restrictions, and I’ll get to work!”
That evening she emailed me with this link. Needless to say, I was somewhat bewildered at how limited his choices are. And while I’m working to come up with healthy, flavorful recipes to send to them, I thought I would reach out to a community that fully understands both healthy eating, and creativity within a restricted diet.
Obviously, I feel that a paleo menu would help him, as cancer feeds on grains, dairy, etc. So I’m asking for your help. If you have any ideas, PLEASE share them. Links with recipes in the comments are welcome. And please spread the word to your creative paleo friends!
Thanks SO much!
