My mom was convinced that coffeecake was its own food group and that donuts were part of that food group. Sugar will give you a boost for a while and perk you up but then your energy level comes crashing down and cc patients experience a lot of fatigue so I was just saying that she wasn't really helping herself get strong again with her dietary choices.
I made her some homemade soup that the recipe said was French and might be served as the first course in French hospitals. The name of the soup was in French and I knew my Mom wouldn't be able to say it so I just told her I was making her French hospital soup and later I heard her on the phone telling a friend that I had made her what they call that French hospital soup like it was something everybody knew about, she really was a character sometimes. She tasted it but didn't really like it even though it was really tasty, especially with a good hunk of bread, even my 10 year old niece loved it, I will look for the recipe and post it.
I am not the most knowledgeable about nutrition but I know there are some books about sugar and cancer and there are posts about it on this board, see:
