With cancer comes cancer treatment, and with treatment comes a variety of side effects that present daily challenges related to nutrition and eating: diarrhea, constipation, loss of appetite and/or taste, dry or sore/sensitive mouth, difficulty swallowing, nausea, weight loss or unwanted weight gain, just to name a few. This unique cookbook from popular author Jeanne Besser addresses all these problems and more, offering up 100 delicious recipes specifically targeting the side effects of treatment. In it, noted experts in oncology nutrition join with successful author Besser to concoct tasty, balanced, and nutritious recipes for patients that will also satisfy the entire family. Each chapter in this book addresses a specific side effect of treatment, and each recipe within the chapter is designed to alleviate one (or often, multiple) symptom(s) or side effects caused by the treatment. Detailed nutritional analysis is provided for each.
