This book has very helpful information for Cancer patients going through Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments. Everyone can benefit from this information. The recipes are Excellent and easy. I like the fact that nutritional information is given and and that hints are given on how to increase the calorie intake when needed. I wish I had seen this book when I was in treatment. I use and love the recipes now!

This book was recommended to me by an oncologist, and I found it was very helpful. There are recipes devoted to foods easier to eat for patients who have side effects from chemotherapy. Some very delicious soups, smoothees, etc. This cookbook shows that nutritious recipes can taste very good.

Format: Paperback
The brilliance of this book is not the recipes, folks...it's learning how to manage treatment symptoms with simple and easy dietary adjustments. The first section of the book is loaded with tips that work for all kinds of common side effects. As for the recipes, I agree they aren't all healthy, but when you are rapidly losing weight as a result of chemo, you can't stop that with more fruits and veggies. I am a cancer coach and recommend this book to almost all my clients, just not as a cookbook. If, however, you want a great COOKBOOK, The New American Plate is fabulous!

Easy every-day recipes with ingredients that are in your everyday kitchen. Big PRINT, which is very nice for the "aged" eyes.

This is a valuable tool for a person who is dealing with nutrition issues due to chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. I was made aware of this book through a nutritionist at the hospital where my husband was receiving treatment. I used it in conjunction with nutrition guides from the American Cancer society and it was very helpful in keeping up the dietary requirements suggested by the nutritionist. I was easily able to maintain the calories, protein, carbs, fat, iron, etc. in preparing foods. I credit this book with assisting me in keeping my husband's blood counts in a good range and also in helping him to gain back weight lost. I have purchased and given copies of this book to three other Cancer patients who said that it was very helpful. I still use many of the flavorful recipes in preparing meals.

I bought as a gift so I actually have not tried recipes. However, the recipes looked simple, easy to prepare, as well as nutritious. As a cancer survivor, I know simplicity is essential. Furthermore, your taste buds aren't very cooperative so healthy and quick are the main things we need. I had a Cancer Cookbook given to me that listed recipes by symptoms and situations such as: recipes if you are nauseous, or have neurtropenia. In scanning, though it may be there, I didn't notice that feature. But from the quick scan, tithe book overall looked great.

The recipes are quick and easy and use mostly fresh food. ( A GOOD THING) Hopefully I do not have cancer but continue to use the cookbook since my husbands death. Small cell lung cancer is hard to beat, but good nutrition helps to soothe the aching soul.
