With nutritional information written and supported by cancer research dieticians, this book offers fun and delicious ways to prepare food and get practical help while going through treatment

Aimed at those going through cancer treatment and their caregivers, this book explains how to create delicious meals and snacks that tantalize the tastebuds, no matter how experienced--or otherwise--the reader is in the kitchen. Whether a patient is struggling with loss of appetite, wondering how to get more iron into their diet, wanting to relieve "metal mouth," or dismayed that their favorite foods now seem tasteless as a result of treatment, this book can help. Accessible, delicious recipes include Cesar Salad, full of B12 vitamins and strong flavors to wake up sleeping taste buds; Wild Mushroom Tart, which includes three sources of calcium; French Bean & Onion Ring Casserole, for vintage comfort food; Chocolate Silk Pie, for the chocolate cravings common to treatment; and Gin  Tonic Ice Lollies, to help with dry mouth and nausea and stimulate appetite. When life is turned upside down, what we eat and how we approach it is one of the few things that we still have in our control. With tempting treats and healthy food ideas, the emphasis is on the nutritional values that can make a difference, but most importantly this is a book that lifts the spirits--just when food and diet can become tricky. Includes conversion chart.
