Do you ever wonder what foods to take to a ill friend or a coworker or neighbor who is going through a challenging time? There is a wonderful online tool which offers lots of ideas.

For example, You may wonder what dishes are easy to make or transport well. Take Them a Meal provide recipes; such as:
Pretty, Yummy Fruit Salad

Recently I discovered on this website two easy suggestions:
First idea: Breakfast Foods Basket
“The beauty of this meal, besides its ease, is that your recipient can enjoy it in the evening and/or in the morning, based on their situation and needs. All you need is some store bought pastries, a pack of bagels, cream cheese, some nice jams/jellies, fresh fruit, good coffee or tea or some juice. It may not seem like much but this simple gesture is sure to go a long way.”
Second idea: Make Your Own Salad:
“Sometimes a big, fresh salad hits the spot. Simply buy a large tub of mixed greens and a variety of toppings such as:
Chop, if necessary, pack in Ziploc bags or plastic, disposable containers and let the family assemble according to their preferences. Or, you can put it all together in a gallon size bag so all they have to do is dump it out and enjoy. Bring along a bottle of a more neutral dressing, such as oil and vinegar or ranch. If you’re especially short on time, many grocery stores have salad bars where you can fill up a container of toppings. Grab a loaf of French bread and smile knowing you provided a healthy, nourishing meal for a friend!”
