I am hoping all you foodies (and just food-tolerating types) can provide some help for an exciting new community project.
I am the executive director at I'm Taking Charge (imtakingcharge.com), which is an educational website on breast reconstruction. At the moment, however, we're branching out into a non-reconstruction project. Based on the needs of women who visit our website, we're looking to create a cookbook for women (and their families), at all stages of their diagnosis.
Obviously, nutrition can be a challenge, even without cancer, but add in surgeries, chemotherapy, or just pure exhaustion, and it can feel truly overwhelming.
This is where you can help. We'd love to know what recipes have worked for you? What are your nutrition super-charger recipes? What are your survive-the-kitchen recipes? What are your I-hate-food-but-I-have-to-eat recipes? Or, even more importantly, what are your happy recipes, the ones that you smile about, because you love them?
We're also looking for any food and kitchen tips that you've learned along this journey. We will, of course, be giving you credit for any recipes/tips we use. We'll also be making, testing, editing, and photographing all these recipes to compile them into what we hope is a beautiful and very useful resource for women as they face this diagnosis.
You may respond here, private message me, or write me at email@example.com.
