Why do so many of you like buffets? If you can't eat much, you don't get your money's worth.

    because

    You can try lots of little things to see if your taste has come back, instead of buying a whole dish and findishing you a0 dont like it, or b) cant taste anything

    Salad bars in grocery stores

    Salad bars in grocery stores are also good, and they charge by the ounce.

    Chinese Buffet

    Even better is the Chinese buffet. I found multiple things I like and can always try new things as my tastes changes. Its a whole 10 bucks for the dinner buffet. I was spending 90 dollars a week cooking store bought food to just take one bite and throw it in the trash. Just to start over and try to cook something else. I never dreamt eating could be so fustrating. Good Luck.

    But, I am finding it does get

    But, I am finding it does get better.  Not anywhere near at a satisfying rate, but if I force thru for a week, I have now added those foods.  I am finally gaining weight, didn't want to initially, but realize now it has to happen or my recovery will run out of fuel.  I also make a point of downing two protein shakes a day.  I take that as a marker for the distance travelled.  I struggled to get those down in January.  Now it's a quick chug at bed time.

    i will have an extra helping of that.

    lightpulse,

    I have worked at a nudist colony in the past (clothed of course) and they have their buffet in the buff.  Maybe, that is what is missing for you.

    You need to think outside of the box.

    mmmmmm

    I live for these buffets. They were great when the kids were little and I knew they'd always find something they liked. Now, they take me and we're looking for things Mom will enjoy! No server to rush you through the dining 'experience', either...

    Chinese Buffet for me!!

    I went to the Chnese Buffet about a month after treatment ended.  I think most of us suffer from taste fatigue for a while after treatment....that's where the first bite tastes good, and it's down hill almost immediately after.  Lots of new tastes in the chinese buffet....a SURPRISE (to the palate) per bite so to speak.  I loved it!!
