Good Food and Good Books for HNC Patients

While plenty of people love getting outdoors in the summer, it’s also fun to stay in and enjoy cooking with your family and relaxing with a good book. In this newsletter, we are covering fun recipes and inspirational reads that will help you savor every day of your summer.

From Treatment to Table

Any head and neck cancer patient or family member of someone with HNC understands one of the biggest challenges of treatment and recovery—nutrition. Because head and neck cancer treatment can involve critical parts of the eating process, like the tongue, the throat, and the mouth, it can be uncomfortable to eat. However, that does not lessen the importance of a healthy, balanced diet that promotes recovery.

This free recipe book was designed by patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals who understand the challenges that you are facing and can advise on how to maintain a high-protein, high-energy diet that promotes health and well-being. The recipe book contains delicious recipes and treats for every meal, including things like:
  • Mango smoothie
  • Baked spinach, parmesan, and egg white souffle
  • Creamy sweet potato and lentil soup
  • Slow-cooked beef stew
  • Chocolate lava mug cake
  • And much more!
