Beef juice extracted from the broiled meat con-tains the nourishing properties of the meat. The several gruels are used with different results. 215 2i6 DAILY LIVING Oatmeal gruel is slightly laxative, and may be used innearly all cases. The wheat gruels are astringent, and Indian gruel, onaccount of the fat contained, is not given in fevers. All food which contains starch should have long, slowcooking to swell and burst the starch grain, which ren-ders it more digestible. Bread is better served toasted for the invalid, as duringthe process the starch changes into the first stage ofdigestion, the same as the action of the saliva on thefood, which is often lacking with the invalid. Starchy food should be used with caution where a con-centrated diet is required, as it adds bulk to the food. It has been said that a good sick room cook will savethe digestion half its work. Nourishing food is a valuable aid to the physician inthe recovery of the invalid, and should be studied inevery home.
