Pink Ribbon Cooking™ Nutrition
Pink Ribbon Cooking™ is not a prescription diet. One-size-fits-all is not a workable nutritional formula, especially when dealing with the realities of individual treatment protocols for breast cancer. Many factors contribute to the unique stimuli that go into a nutritional plan. Your oncologist and hospital's registered dieticians are best equipped to provide guidance for your specific nutritional needs.
That being said, Pink Ribbon Cooking™ is a recognized community partner with the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion Nutrition Communicators Network, as such we utilize components of the resources of www.ChooseMyPlate.gov as guiding principles for our menus and recipes.
While Pink Ribbon Cooking is focused on breast cancer, the recipes suit a variety of dietary concerns with few or no substitutions.
