Cancer Recipes To Help Ease Symptoms for Daddy and Larynx Cancer

cancer recipes for chemotherapphy

Cancer recipes for my Father to eat during his challenging time.

Cancer recipes–can it make a difference what you eat while going through treatment?  My Dad is my hero-he had larynx cancer 15 years ago and has to speak with an artificial larynx.  He talks so much he usually goes through two batteries daily.  (You can see his artificial larynx around his neck-the way he communicates).  He was the inspiration for my cookbook, Eating Well Through Cancer:Easy Recipes & Tips to Guide you Through Treatment and Cancer Prevention and now my new Spanish edition, Alimentándose bien durante el cancer  as he enjoys food as much as I do.  There are foods that are b
etter tolerated and ease the symptoms so my goal was to show you those cancer recipes with foods to make going through treatment easier.  Best of all about this book besides all the great information to questions most often asked, you will find recipes that will work for the patient, family and caregiver!

Easy Potato Soup -cancer recEasy Potato Soup is cancer recipesipes I tested on Daddy from Sore Mouth Chapter




 Easy Potato Soup from my cancer cookbook, Eating Well to Fight Cancer
Starting with hash browns means no peeling potatoes which makes this an incredibly fabulous, yet simple soup.

Makes 8 (1-cup) servings

6 cups frozen hash brown potatoes, partially thawed
6 cups fat-free chicken or vegetable broth
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1(12-ounce) can evaporated skimmed milk, divided
3/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
Salt and pepper to taste
Green onions, cheese, turkey bacon, optional toppings

1. In large nonstick pot, combine hash browns, broth, and onion; bring to boil, reduce heat, and
cook, covered, 8-10 minutes.
2. In small bowl, whisk together flour with 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Add to potato mixture with remaining milk. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and cook, stirring, 5 minutes or until thickened.
3. Remove from heat and stir in yogurt; don’t boil after adding, stirring until well combined. Season to taste.

Terrific Tidbit: I like using Greek yogurt as it is richer, and creamer. If you feel better, you can add condiments such as green onions, turkey bacon or cheese

Nutritional Nugget: Greek yogurt is higher in calcium than plain yogurt.
