A Humorous Look at the Bright Side of Cancer... and There Is One

Chemotherapy & Food-Combining

Since my last “Red Devil” chemotherapy treatment last Thursday morning, I’ve noticed that as time goes on, my food-combining gets wackier and wackier:

1. Raw carrots & raw almonds
2. Raw cucumber & salt
3. Lemon & ice water
4. Split pea soup & sourdough toast
5. Chocolate chips & mint ice cream (nothing wacky about this standby from Haagen-Dazs)
6. Wheat Thins & Bit-O-Honey (?!)
7. Haribo black licorice wheels & red raspberry tea

These food combinations may seem strange, but for now, I’ll celebrate the fact that I have kept all of them in my stomach. I’ll worry about my hips and thighs later.

  1. None of those sound that strange to me. I wonder if that says more about you, or about me. Number 7 was my favorite. I love black licorice, and I love raspberry tea. Now that’s good eating!

  2. Ok, I need to know: is Haribo licorice the salted kind? And you forgot that other Dutch standby–sandwiches with butter and chocolate sprinkles! Now that’s comfort food.
