  • The holidays can be difficult when you aren't feeling well. Most if not all gatherings are focused around food, and you might be worried you won't be able to eat some of it. A helpful strategy is to bring a dish with you that you can eat so that you know you can have something at the party. If you are a family member or friend of someone with pancreatic cancer, this loaf makes a lovely gift they can enjoy.

  • Using Greek yogurt has added extra protein to this loaf. You can also serve this with some nut butter for even more protein and calories.

  • Ginger can help reduce nausea after surgery and from chemotherapy. Using a few teaspoons of fresh or powdered ginger a day is fine. If you would like to take more, speak to your doctor, as ginger can interfere with some medications.
