Plate of stir fried steak, bell peppers, and onions.

Steak and Capicola Wraps

Chemotherapy can wreak havoc on the appetite. The best recipes for me are the ones that are versatile with ingredient changes that match what my stomach can tolerate at the moment. Here’s a recipe that is versatile, healthy, and can be customized.

The onions and garlic can be removed from the pan once cooked or removed from the recipe altogether. The red bell pepper can be an orange pepper or green pepper or it can be removed altogether. Don’t want mushrooms today? Not a problem. Capicola too spicy? That’s ok, stick with the steak. Is cheese making you bloated? That’s ok. Remove it.  It’s all up to you and what foods you can tolerate now. This is a light meal and you can add items on the side if you like. My favorite sides range from rice, fries, refried beans, or salad and sometimes I just have the wrap. Here’s my chemo go-to-meal! Enjoy!
