Gravy has been my saving grace. I buy a light brown gravy mix and make it up with hot water – cover mashed vegetables and maybe very finely cut soft meat with it. Roast veges are very soft: potato, sweet potato, pumpkin, capsicum. Gravy on top and they’ll go down the hatch.
I’m getting sick of cheesecake and lemon meringue pie which are all I can eat if out at a cafe. I ask for a double supply of yoghurt with anything I order. (And big confession – if I’m out in the city I look for A Carl’s Jnr which has delicious milkshakes.)
Soup is more interesting if you add some chopped, buttered toast.
Unsurprisingly I have started to put on weight for the first time in three years – that’s a good sign cancer-wise but not so good for my appearance:) And I’m not proud of the health status of my food.

Gravy is a great idea! I haven’t tried that one!

I hear you on the weight gain. I’ve put on a few pounds too. It feels healthy, but I sure hate not fitting into my clothes!
