  • Why love the liver? It is your body’s filter, helping to “detoxify” your system by removing substances that could be harmful to your health. It also produces substances your body needs for blood clotting, and controls the release of sugar and fat your body needs for energy.
  • A liver lovin’ diet helps reduce the amount of work the liver has to do. This diet includes plenty of antioxidants from fruits and vegetables, fibre from whole grains and legumes, and small amounts of healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocado and olive oil. This is also a healthy diet for cancer survivors because it helps reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
  • During cancer treatment, side effects such as loss of appetite can make it challenging to get enough calories and protein. Try having smaller meals and snacks throughout the day. Make sure that your snacks have a balance of carbohydrates and healthy fats for energy, protein for healing and repair, and antioxidants from fruit and vegetables to keep your immune system strong.
  • Walnuts and avocado are excellent sources of vitamin E and grapes are rich in resveratrol. These antioxidants help support the liver in removing harmful chemicals from the body.
