Diets and recipes for Cancer patients

Proper dieting for a cancer patient is very much important. There are several factors associated with diet of a person suffering with cancer. It’s a bit surprising but many people have cured their cancer using nothing but a massive change in their diet. The cancer diet is just as important as the cancer treatment.

Some important factors associated with your diets:

As chlorine destroys many phytonutrients with other nutrients so foods or vegetables should not be washed with tap water before cooking.
Green vegetables should be taken in ample amount. Along with green vegetables fruits must be eaten in huge amount. It’s always better to take fresh fruit juices whenever possible to get the required amount of nutrients. Fruit and vegetables may have a protective effect by decreasing the risk for some cancer types such as oral, oesophageal, gastric and colorectal cancer.

Preserved meat, salt preserved foods and very hot drinks must be avoided in cancer. Along with those alcoholic beverages is a must thing that should be avoided.

Peanuts and cashews both have too much fungus and thus should be avoided by the cancer patients.

Refined foods must be avoided whether it is refined sugar or refined grains.

Another must thing for a cancer patient is to drink plenty of water, as much as they can drink throughout the day.

Following are some recipes that can be used for cancer patients:

Banana Milkshake-

Take a whole ripe banana. Sliced it. Take 1 cup of milk. Pour the sliced bananas into milk and mix few drops of vanilla extract. Place them into a blender and blend them at high speed until the mixture gets smooth. Serve it!

High protein Milkshake-

Take 1 cup fortified milk and 2 tsp of your favorite syrup. Take ½ cup ice cream and ½ vanilla extract. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend at low speed for 10 seconds. Serve it!

    At first I would like to thank you for sharing this nice topic. Now a days we find cancer patients everywhere in the world.We can keep away this serious disease from us and for that we have to maintain some routines. Cancer can not be cured completely but can be prevent by taking green vegetables like cabbage.

    Thanks to you for such precious information for cancer patients. I’ve heard from somewhere that Peanut Butter Snack Spread it also effective for cancer patients. Mix one tablespoon of fatless dry milk, one teaspoon of water and vanilla extract with one tablespoon of honey and five tablespoon of smooth peanut butter. Spread on crackers. Keeps well in refrigerator, mixture also can be formed into balls, cooled, and eaten as candy.
