Episode 3 Meal Planning - 5 Top Considerations with HNC Treatment Side Effects
Show Notes

* I am not a medical professional but I am a lived experience patient*šŸ’œļæ½

What am I going to eat, what can I eat? How am I going to manage to eat ?

All very valid questions when transitioning from PEG to oral eating or just eating generally after HNC treatment. It can be brutal as we all know.

In this episode I outline the top 5 considerations when creating a meal plan and you can apply these at the beginning, middle or later in your healing journey.

1. Nutrition
2. Texture
3. Portion Sizes
4.Seasons
5. Staying Connected

They form an importantĀ  part of your eating journey and can be applied to how you set about creating an eating plan and ensuring you create your BEST food life.

IĀ  talk about the "ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM" - Carers take note!
We need to recognise that eating is more than nutrition. Loosing joy in food.Ā
