ChemoHounding

Jim Leff | Nov 1, 201003:16 PM     136

I have a friend who's a serious food lover, but she started chemotherapy a few days ago and has completely lost her appetite. She feels a strong aversion to just about any food she can think of. It's a little worrisome, because she needs to keep her strength up!

Are there any hounds out there with experience in this sort of thing who can suggest stuff that might make it across her lips?

One tip I've heard was puddings and flan. I'd imagine scrambled egg sandwiches would work, too. Anything else to propose?
