Each of the recipes in our collection includes a list of nutritional facts, where you can check how many calories each recipe contains, alongside the amount of fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, protein, and vitamins and minerals.

After checking the nutritional facts, you may see that some recipes contain nutrients which are different from your current diet. Get advice from your doctor, specialist nurse, or dietitian before making changes to your diet if you are having any kind of cancer treatment.

It’s also important to remember not to add too much seasoning to these recipes – if you can, avoid adding any at all. A panel of our experts previously found strong evidence that salt increases the chance of developing stomach cancer.
