·         Keep food smells to a minimum. Nausea (wanting to throw up) is a common side effect of cancer treatment. The smells of some foods may make your nausea worse.


·         Try bland foods with little seasoning or strong flavours such as crackers, plain biscuits, bread or toast.


·         Ginger is an old remedy for nausea. Have ginger biscuits, ginger ale, or ginger tea as an alternative to green or black tea.


·         If you are worried about feeling nauseous, join your friends and family later for dessert or tea. This may help you avoid some smells in and around the kitchen that may make you feel nauseated.
