Nourishment Notes

Sweet Potatoes

Root vegetables are high in insoluble fiber that can help relieve constipation, a common side effect of cancer medications. A diet high in anti-inflammatory foods, such as vegetables, may also help reduce inflammation.


Chicken is a high-quality protein source, with every ounce having about 9 grams of protein! This is important because protein needs may be higher when undergoing cancer treatment.


Eggs are a great source of protein. Protein is important for building new and healthy cells. Protein needs are often increased when going through cancer treatments.
