about

More and more people's lives are being touched by cancer - you, a family member, friends and neighbours. Good nutrition during treatment is key to maintaining strength and energy, as well as aiding in recovery.

Cookbook author Elise Mecklinger worked closely with a team of six registered dietitians at Princess Margaret Hospital, led by Daniela Fierini, to develop the recipes for Goes Down Easy - the first cookbook of its kind in Canada. Inspired by patients' requests for easy, practical recipes to deal with certain nutrition problems, Goes Down Easy is a practical guide for people living with cancer, their families and caregivers. Some of the most frequently asked questions are "What should I eat? What should I avoid eating? and "How will I manage meals?"

The beautifully designed Goes Down Easy cookbook, which contains over 100 recipes, is organized by symptom, so the appropriate recipe is easy to find when you need it. Each chapter includes advice from dieticians from Princess Margaret Hospital specializing in cancer, a sample meal plan, suggestions to maintain weight and strength, to keep well hydrated, and to ensure meal plans include enough calories, protein, and fluid. Because cancer patients may experience extreme fatigue, recipes require no fancy ingredients, extra shopping or preparation time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful! I bought this after having a tumour removed from my pancreas and wish I had of known about it in the lead up to and after having the surgery! Very basic ideas, but so helpful when you are in the moment and are trying to figure out what you can/want to eat that won't make you sick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's about time! At last, a collection of fantastic (and yummy) recipes to help get some nutrition into people who have no appetite because of cancer. It is such a difficult disease to live with, and the last thing we need to deal with is malnutrition. The sweets are delicious and easy to make. A must own for any person fighting cancer -- those who are sick, and those who are caring for the sick. Fantastic!
