I've told you before and I'll tell you again, people with FTD develop an altered preference for food. Foods they once loved become untasteful to them. It is typical for them to want to eat the same foods day in and day out. I have read over and over (in my online support group) that people with FTD will eat the same thing everyday. For my mom, this is the case as well.
Her favorite meal is tortellini with LOTS of butter and garlic. And I mean lots. She uses butter and garlic on just about everything. And we're not talking a dash of garlic...we're talking "would you like some vegetables with that garlic?"
Some of her other favorite foods:
-chicken with BBQ sauce: it doesn't matter what kind of chicken we make, she wants BBQ sauce. I made an Italian chicken with a tomato sauce the other night, and she brought out her BBQ sauce (much to all of our surprise, she actually tried it without the BBQ sauce and liked it).
-broccoli cauliflower salad
-pineapple (this was a strange one to me...she never cared for pineapple when I was growing up)
-Ensure and Slim Fast
