About Healthy Eating During Chemotherapy by Jose Van Mil
Chemotherapy almost always wreaks havoc on your sense of taste-sugar. It may no longer taste sweet, and appreciation of subtle or strong flavours may vary from individual to individual.
'Healthy Eating during Chemotherapy' addresses these issues by providing tasty and healthy recipes that will excite the palate without over-stimulating it.
Texture or 'mouth-feel' is extremely important and is described in detail to enable you to choose an appropriate recipe for a particular moment.
very helpful in this terrible time, thank you for writing this book to help cancer sufferers all over the world to have faith.
The illustrations are inspiring and the book is well set out, with sections dedicated to different needs of cancer patients at different stages in their chemotherapy. However, I have decided that for me, I need a dairy free diet with no animal products. Having said that, I can substitute rice or soya milk and other things where necessary. I would recommend it to any cancer patient who needs an interesting and inspiring diet or to anyone who is looking after someone who has cancer and has special dietary needs, sometimes needs that vary at different stages of the treatment
Fantastic book. I really liked the way the book was divided into 'taste' sections, as often with chemotherapy your sense of taste goes mad and it was great to be able to go to 'soft, cold, savoury' etc. The recipes are fantastic - really tasty and it's great to get some enjoyment in food in such a difficult time. The health advice about the benefits of different foods is invaluable and gave a sense of power over the cancer.
I have found Healthy Eating During Chemotherapy extremely useful and wish that I had owned it at the beginning of my chemotherapy course. I now use the recipes toward the end of the book for my husband and myself but the earlier ones also look very appealing and I am sure that I would have enjoyed them when my taste buds were compromised and my mouth was sore.I hope to work my way through all the recipes given time. An excellent and constructive idea.
