English Muffin Breakfast Help Caregivers When Going Through Cancer Treatment

I like an English muffin breakfast for a quick nutritious start to the day.  However, when going through cancer treatment – caregivers are invaluable for optimum quality of life.  If you are wondering what can you do for a loved one when they are going through treatment, a good way to support them is to bring over prepared food.   Easy caregiver recipes for cancer patients are helpful and everyone in the family adores my Florentine English muffins. My English muffin breakfast sandwich from my practical cancer cookbook makes the perfect start to the day or quick snack for cancer patients or the family. With only five ingredients, nutritious and delicious, this will quickly become one of your favorite quick breakfast ideas.  A great breakfast recipe that freezes also.

Bring Disposable Containers With Caregiver Recipes

Another excellent tip I like to encourage when bringing over a meal as a caregiver is to bring the food in disposable containers that you do not expect to be returned. This helps relieve the cleaning and takes the pressure off trying to keep up and return dishes. Paper plates and disposable utensils are also helpful. Cooked food that freezes like my Chicken Parmesan makes another healthy easy recipe for a Caregiver to bring to a loved one.  Being able to freeze food allows the cancer patient to eat food on their time frame.  Also, if food is cooked somewhere else, the smell of food can’t bother the cancer patient.  My Caregiver Chapter in Eating Well Through Cancer gives so many caregiver tips. These tips provide great information that is so important during this challenging time.

Florentine English Muffin Recipe Rich in Nutrition For Nutritious Food For Cancer Patients

You know spinach is chocked full of nutrition by its vibrant rich green color – concentrated in phytonutrients and flavonoids, offering healthy antioxidant protection. Spinach is high in the antioxidant Vitamin C which plays an important role in immunity, collagen formation, growth and tissue repair. This recipe fits into a diabetic friendly meal plan and choose whole wheat English muffins for an added fiber boost. Think also about adding spinach to whatever you are making.  If a recipe calls for two cups spinach, try adding 4 cups to boost nutrition. Look for baby spinach in the store because baby spinach is more tender.
