Simply Good cookbook for stroke survivors and their familiesAfter a stroke, you may be uneasy about cooking on your own. Meal preparation can be made easier with planning, special utensils, and helpful tips.

As a trusted resource in your post-stroke journey, we’ve created a recipe booklet specifically with adult stroke survivors in mind. The recipes are designed for regular food texture; however, each recipe includes modifications in case your swallowing abilities have been affected due to your stroke. Look for the color-coded information that best corresponds to your eating level for guidance on how to adjust the recipe.

Eating well can help reduce your risk of having another stroke. As you make daily food choices, base your eating pattern on the recommendations from the AHA.

Our cookbook is full of helpful information:

  • How to eat well after a stroke
  • Tips for meal preparation for stroke survivors
  • Ideas for simple snack and side dishes
  • Healthy and tasty recipes
