Eating Well Through Cancer
Eating Well Through Cancer: Easy Recipes & Recommendations During & After Treatment, by Holly Clegg and noted oncologist Gerald Miletetello, MD is designed specifically for people undergoing cancer treatment. This unique book is divided into chapters that include recipes, suggestions, tips...plus more that is best tolerated and eases the side effects during treatment. The book is designed to help cancer patients better tolerate treatment and maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment. Miletello said he has felt the need for this cookbook for 15 years in order to answer his patient's most frequently asked question, "What should I eat?"
The book is a collection of 250 recipes with color photographs evaluated with regard to their nutritional value, taste, simplicity, availability of ingredients and preparation time. The book also includes a few medicinal recipes for a basic weight gain shake and substitutions. However, most of the recipes are familiar everyday dishes with a healthy twist. Recipes include chicken scampi, blueberry pancakes, spinach and cheese tortillas and vichyssoise. "Nutrition is important in prevention and sustaining a healthy lifestyle," says Clegg.
The book chapters include: Day of Chemo, Neutropenia, Diarrhea, Constipation, Sore Mouth, High Protein-Weight Gain, Snacks, Caregivers and Post Healthy Eating. Each includes an introduction from the doctor, doctor's notes, menu planning, shopping lists, high calorie variations, nutritional analysis, diabetic exchanges, and a cross reference list.
Regarding the cookbook, Miletello says, "This is a good, healthy cookbook that can be used by anyone to prepare everyday meals," Now, when my patients ask me a question about what to eat, I can say turn to page 23."
Dr. Gerald Miletello is a board certified oncologist and has been treating patients for more than 20 years. Holly Clegg, author of the trim&TERRIFIC cookbook series, does national media and speaking, writes for cooking magazines, and is a frequent spokeswoman and consultant for healthy eating and lifestyles.
