Chemo has turned her into a carb maniac: anything potato based, salty, and cheesy will be a hit. ~ Bec is gluten free, pescatarian, doesn’t eat eggs as a main (i.e. quiche) but eggs incorporated into things is fine. Generally we like to eat lots of veggies and fruit, whole grains, beans, etc., but we are not known to turn down a good pizza, plate of fried things, or sweet treats. Always into subs, burritos, breakfast anytime. Tofu, fish, and beans are our main sources of protein generally. Julia is an occasional (1-2x week) meat eater. Prepared foods will be very helpful, with an eye on some balance to the diet :) TAKEOUT IDEAS (feel free to text Julia or Bec if you’re unsure) Thai Cafe J: Drunken noodles w tofu B: Pad thai with tofu, no egg Bahns J and B: Wednesday vegetarian special Cosmic Cantina: J: Veggie burrito B: Vegan platter, add sour cream, add side of chips Monuts: Bag of everything and sesame seed bagels, cream cheese Soul Cocina J&B: Pastel de Yuca, anything else Lemon and Lime J: Channa Masala, Dal Takda, Aloo Gobi Masala B: Malai Kofta Pie Pushers or Hutchen’s Garage pizza: J: Anything sans mushroom and chicken B: GF crust, vegetarian Jimmy johns J: veggie sub!!!
