The Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook
The Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook - Nutritious recipes for during and after cancer treatment, to share with friends and family.
The book is divided into three:
- a detailed section by Dr Clare Shaw PhD RD Consultant Dietitian on diet and cancer and the problems you may face during treatment (such as loss of appetite, nausea, sore mouth, change of taste)
- recipes to cook during treatment, which are nutritionally beneficial and wholesome enough to keep you strong even if you can't eat too much
- and a section of recipes for after treatment aimed at keeping you healthy
This is a lovely, high quality cookbook with tempting photos and easy to follow recipes designed to serve individuals, and two people as well as families, and there are lots of tips about budgeting, leftovers and freezing. Dr Shaw wants to emphasise that you don't have to cook special, separate meals for one, the rest of the family can eat in the same way, saving on time and stress as well as encouraging a healthier diet for all.
It includes contributions from top chefs and food writers including Mary Berry, Nigella Lawson, Ruth Rogers and Rick Stein.

Suitable For... People diagnosed with cancer or for someone looking after a loved one with cancer.
Handpicked Because... During treatment it is so confusing to know what to eat and what not to eat. There is so much conflicting advice that it gets very confusing. The Royal Marsden is a leading cancer specialist hospital and are a trusted source. I would have loved to have received this easy to follow and informative cookbook as I enjoyed cooking during my treatment as I had more time at home, but struggled to find things I enjoyed due to taste changes and mouth ulcers, so this cookbook would have been fun to have tried out.
