Fibre for Life provides these answers and many more - inspiring you to shift your food intake to types of foods that are better for you, the environment, and the whole health of the planet. Chapters include: Hiding in Plain Sight - How fibre has been quietly driving human longevity. Fibre-to-sugar ratio is key.

The Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook Nutritious Recipes During and After Treatment, to Share with Friends and Family

Author: Clare Shaw PhD, RD Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/02/2015

What I particularly like about Clare Shaw’s book are firstly the detailed pages on nutrition and the consideration of diet and what to eat at different stages of cancer, the eating problems that can occur and how to enjoy food as much as possible while eating a healthy and nourishing diet. Secondly there is the emphasis on sharing food, the patient not having to eat a separate diet, there are recipes here that all can enjoy so the pleasures of the table and eating with family and friends can continue through treatment. Lots of ideas too, on preparing food ahead for days when the effort is too much, all in all it’s a wise book for any cancer sufferer – and just as important, 50% of the royalties from the sale of the book go to supporting the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.   Like for Like Reading Eating for Better Health, Jane Plant and Gillian Tidey Nourish: The Cancer Care cookbook, Penny Brohn and Christine Bailey
