Nourishment Notes


Nutmeg, like cloves, is a natural digestive aid to help with stomach upset. It’s also rich in myristicin that may help promote tumor fighting in the body.

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. Full-fat dairy also provides important nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and vitamin D.
