Great that they now have a basket full of foods that’ll give them a much needed boost. How ironic would it be for them to throw them into the microwave and have the nutrients zapped right out? That’s where these items come in handy.
There are a lot of good steamers out there. Since I had to be careful about eating raw vegetables, I steamed them almost every day. Remember that other good-to-know thing about cancer patients is that they are incredibly vulnerable to germs. You catch a cold and you may miss a day of work. They catch a cold and may very well end up in hospital, so the more nutrition they take in, the better.
You can go as simple as this one here. I’ve used mine for years because I like cooking on the stove and it is incredibly easy to use, just pour the water in the pot, drop this in and let it fan open, drop the veggies and put the lid on. It was my way of balancing out buying the pre-packaged microwavable rice. I do like the dual steamers out there though and think they’d make an excellent gift. Just add some Jasmine rice and a bow and you’ve got yourself a thoughtful and very useful gift~
