Ever since the maximum amount of RT in 1999 eating has been a problem. Fair enough. Small price to pay. I blend and experiment but have developed a 'scunner' - Scottish word for 'distaste'-for anything too bland, including most supplements.
Chocolate and bread-=-apart from homemade croutons--are out. And all my really lovely soups
with delicate spices (anyone want a recipe, just shout) just do not add the ounces let alone the pounds.

Tips for putting weight on:ice-cream (whipped smooth),yoghurts,mousse (full fat!), custard, soups (cream of tomatoe has lots of calories!) cartons of ensure ( plenty of calories!) I can't eat properly and these are all I can swallow! If you can stomach full cream milk that'll help too!!

��� �� ... thank you very much for the food tips. I like Ensure very much. Their coffee one actually, if you have a good imagination, tastes like Baileys if you have it ice cold!
While on the food still. Tonight I made something SO lovely although it has given me a bit of wind.
I cut up a couple of small swedes (after peeling obviously!) and boiled for 30 mins to make sure they were cooked; then blended thoroughly with good French butter, full milk and a pinch of mild curry powder. Really nice. One of my sons came round to see if I needed anything and helped to finish the pan cntents.. I'll probably have that every day now until I'm sick of it.
Thanks again Ishbel
