When my grandma went through chemo, she had a lot of food aversions and certain things made her sick. It's hard to suggest anything without knowing what the bad stuff is for her.

I agree with Sarey.   I would ask her what appeals to her.  For my dad everything was BLAND during chemo the first round so nothing appealed to him.

Chemo gave me a bad taste in my mouth, I prefered strong flavors, but not garlic. I'm sure everyone is different though.

Check with the friend...what makes her sick..what tastes "bad" to her...what flavors taste good to her...

I vary day to day, it seems.  Right now, I'm eating pork chops grilled with bbq sauce and pineapple.  If you had tried to give me that yesterday, I wouldn't have eaten it.  It was a "bad belly day."

If it's a mom, making stuff for the whole family is the way to go.  I also like to make calorie-rich stuff to make every bite count.  Homemade macaroni and cheese and freshly made applesauce are my go-to dishes.  Also, breaded and fried chicken cutlets are good because they're as tasty a few days later as they are the day they're made.

 And I have one friend whose chemo made absolutely everything taste bad EXCEPT fruit smoothies from Red Mango.  She lived on those things for weeks!
