I think because it was a meal I could have with no issues, I really enjoyed tuna noodle casserole while going through treatments. It's not a spicy or overly flavorful meal, but it's more of a comfort food and the tuna is a good source of protein. You could also throw in some canned salmon to bulk up the health benefits. I kind of just throw together the recipe, no set exact measurements but go to say a website like All Recipes and type in tuna noodle casserole and you will see a variety of options. I tend to look for the easiest ones and/or those that I already have the ingredients for. LOL
Off the top of my head:
2 cans of chunk white tuna
1 packet of salmon
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can evaporated milk
Small bag of frozen baby peas (i never thaw, too lazy to remember and they cook just fine)
Dried Minced onion (as much as you think he/your family will like for flavor)
Bag of wide noodles (the kind used for chicken noodle soup)
I cook the noodles then mix everything all together with the cooked noodles then bake (covered) in oven 375 degrees for 45 minutes. We then eat ours with potato chips--I love the crunch and salty of the chips with this casserole. You can crunch the chips on top or I like to scoop the casserole on the chips and eat it like that. The chips make the meal!
I have a really easy and tasty chicken and rice recipe but I don't know it exactly off the top of my head and I am not home just now--will get back to you on that one. In general, not easy to eat healthy while going through this when you have to avoid so many foods that are good for you. I am a huge fruit and veggies and salad lover so it sucked having to be on a low fiber diet for so much of the whole ordeal, but it eventually gets better and you get back to eating the good stuff.
