In Betty Crocker's Living with Cancer Cookbook doctors Kris Ghosh and Linda Carson along with Elyse Cohen begin with a discussion of the disease and how to cope then outline and identify dietary considerations. A q&a section answers patients' common questions, such as "Why am I too tired to eat?" and is followed by such soothing recipes as Berry-Banana Smoothie. Each dish in the main section, many from patients, includes nutritional and fiber information and is color-coded to indicate which side-effects it helps. One important tip is that extra flavor helps to stimulate the appetite and mask unpleasant tastes from radiation and chemotherapy. Pasta with Chicken in Chili Sauce and Savory Scallops and Shrimp are among the temptations anyone might enjoy. The full-color presentation lifts the spirits.
