Cooking for someone
with cancer
You don't need special cooking skills to cook for someone with cancer-whether that person is you
or someone else. But you do need an open mind and a bit of patience-and you'll want to brush
up on your food-safety savvy (see page 150). Here are some tips to guide you in the kitchen.

Think small. Often people with cancer aren't
able to eat large amounts at once. Try keeping
portions small, and consider more frequent
snacks throughout the day. Serve meals on
small plates. If you're making food to freeze,
divide it into individual portions.
Add meal appeal. Take time to arrange the
food attractively. Serve or enjoy the meal in
an uncluttered, serene spot-which might
not be the dining room. Be creative! Consider
colorful napkins and even (unscented) candles or flowers for a special touch.
Cook and serve in fresh air. If food
smells are a turn-off, make sure to
keep the kitchen well ventilated.
Serve or eat the meal in a separate
room, far from the kitchen area if
possible. If needed, serve foods
cold or at room temperature, to
avoid the aroma they emit from
steaming.
Be flexible. The very nature
of cancer's effects on
appetite means that you or
the person you're cooking for

might have sudden, unpredictable changes
around eating. He or she might ask you to
prepare something she's craving, and then
by the time you've made it, it doesn't appeal
anymore. Or a favorite food might suddenly
be nauseating one day, and then work
wonderfully the next. Your best bet is to
breathe deeply, accept it and move on.
Try something else.
Support, gently. If it's not a good eating day,
keep trying, but don't push. Focus instead on
hydration. Liquid foods that also provide
nutrients and calories, such as broth,
gelatin, sports drinks, or even popsicles, can help.
Be creative. Because cancer can cause
changes in taste, consider this an
opportunity to get out of a food rut
and try something new. Add variety
and flavor by trying new recipes,
or using a different sauce or
seasoning to shake up the
mix. You'll find plenty of
inspiration in this book.
