I took yesterday to make some staples to have on hand for the up coming weeks. Mark and I are trying to figure out what I should and shouldn’t be eating. We were supposed to meet with a dietitian on my first day of chemotherapy treatment but for some reason her schedule was backed up and she couldn’t meet with us. The doctor did give me a short list of things to eat but I wanted maybe some options and recipes as well.
There are a lot of ingredients in the broth but once you get it together all it has to do is simmer on the stove for a couple of hours. This gives you time to wonder where you’re going to store it once it’s done. The one recipe made over 16 cups or so of broth. I was able to put half of that in the freezer for another use. I will be making the Chicken Vegetable Soup with Ginger Meatballs later today.
Yum yum! It was very comforting this morning.
The ginger syrup looks like it is going to be wonderful. I had a sample last night as a warm beverage which made me feel good. It was very strong and sharp with ginger. I look forward to having my homemade ginger ale later today.
Yesterday was one of my more difficult days since my diagnosis. For some reason I was very emotional and depressed. I am having a hard time with all the do’s and don’ts it’s a little overwhelming. I know I will have these waves of feelings I just have to keep track and hope they don’t get more frequent. Today I am feeling happier and more on track.
