Eat protein rich food to rebuild cells and promote energy, one hand sized portion with every meal.
Fruit and vegetables - feed your brain and other cells with one handful/day of fresh fruit and at least three large handfuls of green leafys and vegetables. This will help increase nutrients and anti-oxidants to your cells and antioxidants have been shown in recent studies to not prevent effectiveness of chemotherapy, as was once believed.
Nuts and seeds - high in protein 1/2 - 1 handful as a snack. Nuts and seeds also contain good healthy fats which are necessary for healthy cells and mitochondrial function (mitochondria are the 'batteries' of a cell - damaged mitochondria play in a role in cancer progression).
Stevia (in the photo above) is a natural sweetener. The sweetness does not come from sugar however, rather from glycosides in the plant. It does not feed cancer cells and it doesn't have an effect of blood sugar levels.
Fats and oils - 1 - 2 tablespoons of oil in cooking or as a dressing, for the same reasons as nuts and seeds. Fats will also help with side effects of treatment such as weight loss. Healthy fats help with energy levels.
These are just some basic guidelines for macronutrients in your diet for maximum health benefits during cancer treatment and beyond. Your naturopath and specialists will work together to help with your health and recovery.
Yours in health
