The High Protein Cookbook for Muscle Health During Cancer Treatment [New]

Nutrition is powerful! It can be used to help people—including those with cancer—live longer with better health. This cookbook is particularly focused on muscle health, which is related to the amount and type of protein in our diets. People with cancer need more protein than those who are healthy, and animal protein sources are particularly important for building muscle mass; these include, among others, beef, pork, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, and cheese. Our High Protein Cookbook for Muscle Health During Cancer Treatment includes 66 high protein recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks to help patients increase their protein intake for muscle health [Description from resource].
