The Cancer Kitchen Recipes

Some cancer treatments may affect your appetite, sense of taste, and make it difficult to swallow. Usually these changes are short-term and will get better with time. Until then, do what you can to keep up your calorie intake and meet your body's protein, vitamin and mineral requirements. Here is a growing list of delicious foods that are high in protein and calories as well as easy to swallow.

Remember: This is NOT a time to diet! Although it is tempting to think that some weight loss may be good, especially if you have struggled with your weight in the past , weight loss is not a good side effect of cancer treatment. Your focus should be on increasing nutrients to maintain your weight and your protein levels.
