New Cookbook for Cancer Patients

Doctors at the Lahey Clinic have published a new cookbook, Cooking Through Cancer:  100+Recipes for Treatment and Recovery, for patients undergoing chemotherapy and/or dealing with cancer-related symptoms.  The group of Lahey oncologists got together and noted the common symptoms patients experience through their treatments. Along with nutritionists, they developed recipes that would be pleasing to friends and family, yet still address the major complaints of cancer patients.  Recipes include fruit smoothies for patients with mouth sores, banana-flaxseed wraps for patients with constipation, cinnamon coffee cake for patients with diarrhea, African peanut stew for patients experiencing weight loss, soba noodle salad for those with weight gain issues, vegetable lasagna for patients with neutropenia (low white blood cell count) and lemon dill orzo with chicken for patients with nausea.  The book also includes a chapter titled “Celebrations” which has recipes for cakes and even cocktails!  You can order the hardcover book for just over $16, as well as browse through the pages and recipes, at
