Chef Tips

A note about choosing protein powders: When going through cancer treatment, it is best to choose a protein powder that is free of additives, herbs, and supplements. We encourage people to choose a plain protein powder over a flavored protein powder as they tend to be better tolerated and can be added to more foods than just smoothies. Whey protein powder is the most absorbable form of protein powder, but if you’re vegan or have an allergy to whey alternatives, a mixture of several plant-based sources like hemp, pea, and rice will provide a complete protein source.
