With the New Year comes new beginnings and a fresh outlook. The same is true in the food industry. As old fad foods fade, there are new products and trends that appear. Some fads in the past years include coconut oil, kale everything, Sriracha sauce, bone-broths, and specialty waters.
When we think of the holidays, it’s easy to think only of the Thanksgiving turkey or the Christmas ham. But, side dishes offer a great opportunity to bring nutrient-rich foods to the table! Brightly colored foods are rich in nutrients, minerals, and phytochemicals that can help fight cancer.
As part of cancer treatment, you may make frequent trips to your cancer treatment center for appointments and treatment. If your treatment center isn’t close to home, this may mean extra transportation and lodging expenses.
The holidays are a time for traditions, and those traditions often revolve around food. Everyone has their favorite treats. I spend all year looking forward to my mom’s French puffs that she bakes every Christmas morning without fail.
Holidays are usually merry and bright, but cancer treatments can cast a shadow on the holiday cheer. You may still crave the taste, look, or smells of your favorite holiday foods, but you may not have the energy to put in the effort required to throw a holiday feast.
