Hello! My name is Scott and welcome to our site. Let me tell you a little bit about me and why I created this site.
I work with seniors and elderly on a daily basis in the home care world. You see, many seniors and elderly people have swallowing disorders due to strokes and other medical problems. This is called dysphagia by medical professionals. A common complaint among these patients is food variety, taste, and the way the food looks. Then I got personal experience with this issue when a family member had trouble with solid foods after a stroke.
So, I decided to do something about it.
I began to research better ways of pureeing food. You know, rather than just dumping a bunch of ingredients in a blender and hitting the button. We owe it to these people to serve them meals that look, taste, and smell good. Just because a food had to be pureed, didn’t mean that it couldn’t have some character to it. Oh, and flavor!
So, during this research, I found a severe lack of information about pureed foods on the internet. I looked and looked for sources of better recipes, pureeing methods, and more appealing ways to serve pureed foods. But, the information I found was sparse, lacking or very old. There wasn’t a comprehensive source.
So, I created this site as a resource for pureed foods.
There are many people who want to learn about pureed foods besides seniors with dysphagia and their caregivers. Pureed diets are very popular after surgeries like bariatric surgeries and other stomach and intestinal surgeries. Pureed side dishes are served in the best restaurants in the world, right? So why can we not serve this high-level class of food in our homes?
Life at Home
At home, I am a single dad of four daughters. I’ve also got three terrific grandkids. I love taking care of them and being a dad and paw-paw. We all love to be outdoors. Hiking and kayaking are some of our favorite activities. And, yes, I do puree at home. My youngest daughter loves pureed cauliflower – she’d rather eat that than mashed potatoes!
I hope you take some time and look around. More importantly, I hope you find the information you need to help you puree better food at home.
If you can’t find an answer to your question, contact me anytime!
