What you'll learn in this nutrition class:

For families facing cancer, it is often hard to get a healthy, nutritious meal to the table that is not only delicious for everyone, but also satisfies the special needs of the patient. This class will focus on nutrient-dense foods with a high proportion of vitamins, minerals, and fibers relative to calories. 

We will use this knowledge to discuss strategies for addressing symptoms such as weight loss, loss of taste and appetite, nausea and digestive ailments. While we discuss cooking considerations, you will sample pre-prepared dishes such as granola, raw dried fruit and nut balls (weight loss prevention), dairy-free banana bread (for sensitive stomach), and rice flour pancakes (for digestion). 

Then, together, we will prepare delicious dishes like healthy smoothies that can be tailored to symptoms, peanut stew (for weight loss prevention), and ginger-coconut rice (for nausea). You will leave with a go-to grocery list and other resources. A $20 food fee is included in the course fee.
