My dad is recovering from cancer treatments on his throat. He is slowly regaining his sense of taste of bitter and sour. So please help me come up with suggestions of what to feed him that I can pass on to my mom (early Mothers Day present). Here is some additional info
1) since its his throat we need to avoid spicy and acidic
2) cold and hot are also avoided. Likes lukewarm
3) has to be high fat/calories since he doesn't like to eat too much at one time but the doctors want 3000 calories per day
4) mashed potatoes, rice and oatmeal are all out because they bother his throat. He has been eating mainly deviled eggs and pasta would creamy sauces.
The ideas that I have come up with are rapini pesto, yogurt and tonic water. But obviously there are other bitter and sour foods out there that I cant think off.
