Nourishing Foods for People With Cancer


With Laura Pole and Ruth Fehr

- Saturday, October 27, 10am-3pm

Nourishing Foods for People With CancerJoin two culinary and nutrition experts and learn how to incorporate nourishing foods for healing and prevention of cancer. Most of the workshop will be dedicated to hands-on cooking. You will learn how to make delicious and economical recipes that can be easily re-created at home. 

In addition to cooking, participants will also learn: 

  • The critical role food choices play in helping heal from cancer, which foods discourage cancer growth, and which foods promote it
  • Practical tools and information on how to choose your food
  • Food solutions to common problems patients experience during cancer treatment, such as taste changes, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, and others

  Laura Pole, Oncology Nurse, Health Supportive Chef - Director of Nourishment Programs and Head Chef for Smith Center

Ruth Fehr, Certified Holistic Nutrition Counselor, Health Supportive Chef - Director of Nutrition & Wellness Services for The Palette Fund
