Epicure Perfects Turkey Meatballs for Neutropenic Diets

If you’re on a Neutropenic diet, you may have to follow strict rules when it comes to food. In the latest episode of Epicure with Chef MDs hosted by Marc Silverstein, David Guas, Chef Owner of Bayou Bakery, a New Orleans-inspired bakery and café in downtown Arlington, prepares a fun and flavorful recipe that fits your dietary bill and is simple to follow. Dr. Lauren Mauro, hematologist and oncologist at The GW Medical Faculty Associates, joins Chef Guas in offering important nutritional information for those dealing with Neutropenia.

A Neutropenic diet, which is typically followed by cancer patients and those with weakened immune systems to help reduce the risk of infection, helps protect the body from bacteria and other harmful organisms found in some food and drinks.

Chef Guas prepares savory turkey meatballs, a classic dish with natural ingredients that, if cooked properly, can prevent the likelihood of bacterial infections. As Guas prepares the dish, Dr. Mauro points out the importance of being careful when preparing raw meat and vegetables. Chilling the meat on ice while prepping your meal can deter unwanted bacterial growth. He adds that properly washing fruits and vegetables in cold, clean tap water and then cooking them will kill most of the bacteria.

Turkey meatballs are a great source of protein for those undergoing chemotherapy, when maintaining a healthy weight and gaining proper nutritional benefits can be challenging. Guas suggests finding a salty taste in ingredients such as Parmesan Reggiano, rather than adding salt to your recipe. Gaus also points out that there are different variations of meatballs that can be adapted for everyone’s palates.
