I too am a Hodgkin's survivor, like many of the "kids" in this book, including Danielle Navidi's son, so that makes this book all the more dear to my heart, and perhaps it's the reason I'm dissolving into tears as I write this. I was treated in 1988 through 1989, and we too were told that the most important thing was that I eat calories, not where they came from - and I understand why that was. I had horrible nausea and vomiting from treatment. It was an absolute nightmare, one of the worst experiences I've ever had in my life. Even the memory remains so strong I shudder to remember those days. So yes, I had to keep up my weight and my strength. I do not for a moment blame or fault either my parents or my treatment professionals; they did what they had to do. But I ended up developing something of a fast food addiction from eating it at times during treatment, not all the time, but more often than I had before, and for that I have paid dearly in my weight and in contributions to my health issues. Everyone always said that someone "smart" and "well-educated" like me could surely figure out what to eat and what not to eat, and I did know enough to know that fast food wasn't a good choice, of course - but I lacked an understanding of how to put healthier practices in place, how to discover foods that tasted yummy but weren't as bad for me. I've expanded my reading horizons, researched a lot, and begun moving into a better place with food, and I've lost about 80 lbs so far, with about another 80-100 to go. Danielle Navidi's book is a great gift to me, a helpful and delightful guide to some wonderful recipes I can try. I have systemic lupus, and some days eating is a challenge in the way it was on chemo - there are times when I don't feel like eating, either through poor appetite or nausea or a sore mouth or nothing tasting right - so this book will be extremely helpful. And since my husband and I are BOTH survivors of childhood cancer, this book is a welcome addition to our household cookbook library. :)
I am excited about trying several of the recipes, from pumpkin molasses pie to comforting rice pudding to creamy tomato soup topped with zucchini "croutons" to homemade chicken broth and chicken noodle soup. Hopefully I can make broth ahead and freeze for those lupus flare days when I can't do much but still need to eat healthfully.
I should warn you, though - there are some things you won't find in Ms. Navidi's amazing book. Processed foods. Artificial sweeteners. Junk. Her recipes aren't complex concoctions that'll keep you shopping all week and cooking all day, but they don't involve the things that aren't healthy for people. This book is not short on kid favorites - I mean, who wouldn't love chocolate chip cookies and chicken noodle soup? - but it is short on chemicals, and thank heaven for that.
Ms. Navidi cooks and writes with love. We in the childhood cancer community, whether currently patients or long-term survivors, are so deeply blessed that she has chosen to gift us with an outpouring of the love she has lavished on her son.
Some mothers are amazing heroes who get their kids through their journey.
Some mothers, though, stretch out their arms to *all* of us as if we were theirs too.
Thank you - from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. We've needed a book like this. I hope with all my heart that you will go on to write more. I'll line up on Amazon to buy every single title, and I'll recommend them all heartily all over my web contacts and offline acquaintances, to everyone I know.
