I have been trying to get my husband to eat and trying creative ways can be fun. Let me tell you where this all began.
In February, our doctor sent my husband to the hospital. He had not been feeling well, could hardly walk, and didn’t want to eat. He was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation. He was in the hospital for five days and started the I’m not hungry right now saying.
It is now almost September and we have narrowed it down to cold foods…recipes. He has lost a total of 55 lbs. And doesn’t need to lose any more weight. So yesterday morning I made the Cobb salad. He was looking at a soft shell I put in the oven to get crispy. I said, look in the fridge. He open the door and went, Oh, that looks good. I was smiling of course, I hit pay dirt, figuratively speaking.
So now I will have to come up with more ways to get him to eat. He wants cold food, so I will be searching Pinterest for more ways to get him to eat. I actually got the idea from Kevin (Closet Cooking), and I’ve always given credit where credit is due. Below is my first version of the Cobb salad:
3 green onions
3-4 mini sweet peppers
1/2 can corn
1/2 can black beans
1 medium tomato
Shredded Mexican cheese
Layer on dish and add sour cream and spinach, romaine, or cabbage mix. You can use all three if you want.
Very healthy and soo good.
