Cancer treatment can leave you extremely fatigued and the last thing on your mind will be cooking, but you have to eat to keep your strength up. Here are a few easy smoothies, shakes and some great soups that you can make with little effort, or ahead of time to keep ready in the freezer to defrost, or in the fridge to sip on when you feel exhausted. These recipes are especially beneficial to those dealing with mouth soreness or with head and neck cancers where radiation can cause extreme sensitivities in the mouth and throat. Eaten warm, cold, or at room temperature, they provide essential nutrients and calories to get you through. If you have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or a Ninja, you can liquidize the lumpier dishes on this menu to make them smooth and easier to swallow, which you can do with any non-spicy soup on our site. Adding fatty foods like avocado, cream or butter to pureed soups and smoothies will not only add needed calories but will help them slip down even better.
