When you are first diagnosed with cancer you really don't know what to expect. Nausea? Pain? Lethargy? What can you eat? What will you want to eat? Cookbooks like these give you a clue into what foods you might tolerate and what foods should probably be off your radar. I appreciated the non-confrontational attitude of this book. The author tried to come up with foods that are healthy and tasty, but didn't prescribe foods that you must eat. But as I kept reading, I also came up with lots and lots of food prejudices. Sugar, white flour, and all fats are some of the ingredients that the author bends over backwards to avoid. Is it really better to suggest agave nectar in ALL cases where most people would use sugar? Is spelt flour really a substitute for white flour? Even in cases where you would use only tablespoons of flour? I am looking forward to making some of the Dollops of Yum! to spice up otherwise bland food, but I have better recipes for some of the standards like cornbread. ( )
