This is never a bother. I am glad to help. It looks like you have laid out a nice nutritional plan. Your wife will be getting some protein from the milk, nuts, cheese and lentils. She has some good whole grains and fiber. The vegetable soup of course covers some of the vegetable department. The plan for several small meals is also helpful, especially if her appetite is decreased. I would recommend paying attention to her weight as the diet could be low in calories depending on preparation methods. I don't know her weight status now. As she goes through treatment we usually like to keep weight stable but ifr one is overweight then 1-2# of weight loss per month may be acceptable. You may want to add another protein source in the evening too. If she tires of this pattern you can add more variety with variations to the soup or different grains.
