Patti, thanks for the ideas. So glad the local produce is coming in to give more options. Bought some peaches yesterday.

I do a berry smoothie in the blender with whey powder, chocolate cocoa 2 spoonfull, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries about a cup or so which are added frozen and I add almond milk. It tastes better than a milk shake... I have had cancer for over a year but after doing all these things instead of chemo and radiation my last checkups came out good with no cancer... but I will continue. I have another check up in 6 months.

I would stay away from the milk... not so good for cancer... The juice is best fresh soon as it is made for the enzymes to kill the cancer.

I have been juicing for cancer so I try to include cruciferous vegetables that kill the cancer like cauliflower, and broccoli radish, also ginger is an anti inflammatory

I try to concentrate on super foods to get well.... high in anti oxidants... like beets, carrots, apples make it sweet and then add some ginger... brussel sprouts... what ever looks good in the produce section...

this would be a good read for chosing foods..

Gelatin sounds like a good idea. Some days he can tolerate pureed foods and some days he can't (today is a can't day). Most days he can get down ice cream but sometimes it's just Ensure and liquids. He's enjoying the juices. So far his favorite has been a pineapple, apple, cherry, and lemon combo. I've juiced carrots and apples and he liked that pretty well, but I'm trying to think of some different veggies. He's not interested in "green" juice - lol.

When I was the Cook in a Rest Home, I used to puree the various foods down individually. Even roast meats - just add some gravy with it to make it the right consistency. Because you would be dealing with small amounts, you could look at making a few meals worth of each and freezing individually so he can have a 'pick'n'mix' with his meals. Some of the veges might lend themselves to being thinned with milk - some won't.

Is he able to eat elly? If so, perhaps using some gelatine and turning some of the juice into jelly would give extra variety.

Yes, I have the food processor and blender working overtime and we're supplementing with Ensure, so we have a pretty good handle on the nutrition aspect. As I said, just looking for some new combinations for juices for a taste change.

In the hospital where I work, we puree almost everything when needed:
lasagna
our salmon patties
meat loaf
pork loin
french toast
biscuits and gravy
etc...

The only things that don't work are foods with hard pieces...like bacon, or the celery in a tuna salad (so we just leave the celery out and puree the rest of the ingredients). Almost every meal prepared can be pureed to the needed consistency

Thanks for the feedback. Just to clarify, he is in an oncology program and we have received nutritional guidelines and support. However, after two months of a liquid diet we are looking for some taste combinations that we may not have tried before. All suggestions are welcome.

I too encourage a consult with a Registered Dietitian---preferably one who works in oncology.
While you can juice the fruits and veggies, you may also need ways to boost calorie and protein intake to truely meet nutritional needs. I am sure the dietitian will be able to share many recipes for nutrient rich shakes, smoothies, etc.

you could give him the same foods as you use but pureethem down a fair bit with stock from vegetables or meats. That way he will get the variety of tastes etc. that he would have enjoyed previously. I would be inclined to ask for a referral to a Registered Dietitian to ensure that he gets all the nutrients/supplements that he needs.

Good luck, and my best wishes go to your husband.

Hubby has esophageal cancer and can only swallow liquids and very thin pureed foods. I'm having a hard time coming up with fruit and vegetable ideas, so I just bought a juicer. Anyone have tasty recipes for me?
