Is There A Cookbook Of Recommended Recipes For ALZ Patients? Or Can You Share Some Foods Your ALZ Loved Ones Like?

Dad is eating only about 25% of what he used to, and he's on a mechanical-soft diet. Since he isn't very active, he doesn't need to eat all that he used to, but eating is still something he can do (with help).

My Mom’s tastebuds haven’t changed yet, but she has always loved sweet and sour or sweet and spicy food - chinese american sauces that have spicy components with brown sugar are always favorites! The spicy ones like firecracker sauce have the added benefits of getting her to drink lots of water or iced tea with her meal. Balsamic vinegar is also a good flavoring because of the sweet and sour taste. Barbeque sauces might be good too. And if you are worried about sugar, many of these things come in diabetic friendly versions, too. Hope this helps!❤️
