Abstract : This report contains recipes suitable for therapeutic diet use in Army hospitals. Selection of the 124 recipes was based upon recipes found in the Armed Forces Recipe Service (AFRS) recipe file. Two hundred eighty-nine different modifications of these recipes are included. While the AFRS recipes are written for 100 portions, modified diet recipes, using a similar format, are written for 10 portions, with a capability of freezing most of the entrees. Food lists from the Nutritional Support Handbook, TM8-500, Headquarters, Department of the Army Technical Manual, October 1982, were essential to the development of the recipes. These lists specified foods allowed, portion sizes and the various special diets used in Army medical facilities. Nutrient content per serving is included as part of each recipe.
