2012-07-27-CancerGQ.jpgQ: Do you have any ideas for healthy meals to make for a recovering cancer patient? My mother is in remission, but she has trouble swallowing and therefore has a hard time eating food. I'm only home for one month and I want to make lots of meals for her that are easy to eat and can be frozen.

Editor: Soups of all kinds tend to be easy to eat, freeze, and re-heat. Roasted and boiled vegetables, wilted greens, and soft-cooked porridgy grains might also appeal to your mother. Best wishes on her recovery!
