How did this book start? From years of experience with cancer, Victoria Tsoleridis, a qualified Clinical Nutritionist, brings together her knowledge of advanced stages of cancer and a passion for food. Victoria saw a growing number of cancer patients requiring assistance with the types of foods they could eat during their treatment and recovery. However, there was no one able to prepare meals for patients who had little help during the time they needed it most. Victoria hired and created meals in a commercial kitchen and delivered to her patients weekly. A Spoonful of Nutrition is a collection of Victoria's most popular and desired meal recipes made to be available for the whole world. Meals are easy to follow, prepare and delicious enough for the whole family to eat.
***** "I absolutely love the Broccoli Soup recipe. It's been the only thing I have wanted to eat during my chemo days. " Nicky (Breast Cancer Stage 3 survivor)
***** "I suffered from chronic constipation, upon the advice of doctors I tried fibre powders, but they made me feel so full I couldn't eat food. Victoria's chia puddings help me everyday and I know I'm getting proper nutrition as well". BA (Prostate cancer fighter)
***** I can't get enough of the Swedish meatballs!!! So easy to eat and my blood count gets a boost for my next round of chemo. Thank you!!!" Alex (Lymphoma warrior)
"I really hope you enjoy my collection of recipes. The world is changing, health professionals everywhere now understand that diet makes an incredible difference in the way our body reacts to medication, in healing and recovery. Medication helps destroy the disease, but proper nutrition helps repair the body. The synergistic relationship between medication and diet is profound. Say goodbye to shakes and fake food - it's time to heal with food again", Victoria x
