pureed foods for friend with ALS
I have offered to do some cooking for a neighbour with ALS. Because he chokes so easily his food must all be one texture. There is also a concern that he is not taking in enough calories. Any suggestions for some tasty pureed foods ?
I agree, it's totally nice of you to be there for him. I have a loved one with a disability and it means the world to me when someone takes special care to be part of our support system.
I ran across this website-- the cookbook author cooked for her loved on with ALS. http://www.dysphagiacookbook.com/reci... (the thai butternut squash soup looks good, and the chocolate mousse idea is also pretty cool!)
You might want to find out if he uses any thickeners in the liquids he takes in.
