Old Fashioned Oats

Oats are a great source of fiber to help protect the heart and keep the digestive system running smoothly.

Cold, Uncooked Foods

Cold foods that aren’t cooked, such as overnight oats, smoothies, yogurt and fruit, are typically well-tolerated in patients experiencing altered taste.


Blueberries contain anthocyanins that help to protect the heart and improve memory function.


Cinnamon contains cinnamaldehyde, the component that gives cinnamon it’s flavor and odor, is also known to help lower inflammation associated with certain cancers.
