Nourishment Notes


Mild-tasting protein sources, such as beans (edamame, kidney, and garbanzo), are typically well-tolerated when experiencing taste changes. Beans are also a great source of lean protein to help your body build new and healthy cells.


Citrus foods, such as limes, lemons, or oranges, can help add flavor to dishes when foods may taste bland.


For some, foods may have a bitter or metallic taste. Garlic can off-set this flavor in dishes and help make food more enjoyable for those experiencing taste changes.
