When we want to beat the summer heat, we turn to cool or room temperature foods. Cold dishes are also a very practical option for the cancer patient: they have less odor, making them easier for someone who’s feeling queasy after chemo. The options are endless and delicious. Think about an Italian antipasti table loaded with delicious veggies and cheeses. Or a slice of meatloaf in a sandwich with salad. Food doesn’t need to be straight out of a saute pan to be delicious!
