dining with the dietitianPracticing healthy eating habits throughout cancer treatment is essential. Staying hydrated and maintaining muscle tissue with adequate fluids, calories and nutrients can reduce treatment delays, improve immune system and help minimize side effects. Research shows that plant-based foods are also a vital component to overall health during and after cancer treatment.

The American Cancer Society published their recommendations that cancer survivors should eat “plant-based foods that are high in fruits, vegetables and unrefined grains while at the same time being low in red and processed meats, refined grains, and sugars.”

Dining with the Dietitian is a new service offered by our registered dietitian, Laura Shroyer, RDN, LDN to ensure patients are aware of these recommendations. The dietitian will offer healthy, nutritious snacks on a monthly basis and provide education on the benefits of each recipe.

Recipes are also provided and available by clicking the links below.
