Nourishment Notes


Peppermint may help ease nausea, a common side effect from cancer medications.

Full-Fat Dairy

Full-fat dairy products, such as cheese, cream, and whole milk, are high in calories. A high-calorie diet may be necessary if unwanted weight-loss is occurring. Dairy also provides important nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and vitamin D.
