One of the lovely side effects of Taxol (two treatments down, two to go) is loss of appetite. I literally do not feel like eating. I reached my goal weight on Sept 7, but since then I’ve lost another three pounds, and I don’t think that’s a good thing at all.
I’m trying to heavy up on the protein, and I had a Boost drink for breakfast (yuck) and a hamburger for dinner last night, but when I’m achy from the Neulasta and the Taxol (another side effect, joint pain, so I’m getting a double dose there) the thought of food just doesn’t appeal to me. For lunch today I had some tomato soup, crackers, a mixed fruit snack, and a V-8.
I am taking a multi-vitamin as well as some other vitamins (B-6, E, Magnesium, Calcium + D, and evening primrose oil) but I need something simple to make that will back a nutritious punch. I know beans are good, so maybe some refried beans with cheese and sour cream?
One stipulation…no eggs.
