I added cream to gravy , sauces, casseroles & ragus. Roast dinners always had bread sauce made with cream not milk . I made custard with cream, bread & butter puddings (that mum adored ) with cream . Curries with cream ! I bought bulk supplies if cream from makro!! Even making soups with cream to then use as a base for gravy etc. Added to that I cooked with butter & olive oil! Added to that Mother being cornisg@Leva yes the high calorie shakes that dad had were called 'ensure' and he had them on prescription, he once drank 12 in one day although that was unusual, his average was eight for quite a long time. Also I used to add double cream to his scrambled egg which helped. It's amazing how much cream can be added to one scrambled egg. Dad put on 3 stone with this diet although it probably did not do his cholesterol a lot good.
Hi. My dad was always slim but has lost weight recently. He has VD. I would get a blood test done as well as the protein shakes. Dads blood result came back with a low albumin which contributes to weight loss. Dad has a shake once a day. But he is eating and drinking a lot less as well.My husband has always been slim but he is now so thin it is truly heart-breaking. Is this one of the symptoms of dementia?
Yes it does mean though that when the person with dementia starts to refuse food & drinks the weight loss is dramatic , but I am so pleased that while Mum could eat she had lovely home cooked meals.
Sounds delish - that's my kind of diet. If you're ever looking for work as a private chef, please get in touch...
Totally agree cream , butter , full fat milk & olive oil used in my cooking & I have low cholesterol
Hi. A carer asked me the other how come my dad whois diabetic type 2 that he has sweet things. The trouble is dad never stuck to his diet when he was in control of it. I feel at the age of 88 the damage is already done. As long as it’s not excessive what does it matterThank you all. I no longer care re nutrition and if he wishes he can have ice cream all day if that is what he wants. I take tomatoes in a vinaigrette every other day and he loves those and Gu cheesecakes and fruit, the odd crisp and the sandwiches I make. He will not eat anything savoury made by the care home except for cheese on toast and his breakfast croissants but I've decided it just does not matter and for me , someone who has always insisted we have a really good Mediterranean diet I feel I've at last taken a sensible step!
