Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center - Healthy Eating Recipe Series with Sara Madden, RD

November 24, 2020

During these challenging times, the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center - Washington Township remains committed to providing safe, expert care, close to home.  

We thank the communities we serve for the opportunity to be their partner toward good health. One way we can be healthier, together, is by eating a well-balanced diet. Doing so can boost our immune system and reduce the risk and severity of chronic medical conditions. 

The holidays are a great time to discover new recipes; try these tips to ensure you and your family eat well during the holidays: 

  1. Choose lean proteins — such as chicken, turkey, and fish — or plant-based proteins — such as beans, quinoa, and nuts. Trim visible fat before you cook; for a “healthier” preparation, try baking, broiling, or grilling instead of frying. 

  1. Choose whole grains most of the time — such as whole wheat, oats, and whole barley; look for the first ingredient listed as “whole”. 

In the coming months, we will share more healthy eating tips and recipes. We invite you to share your healthy eating experiences with us by following us on social media and using #SKCCHealthyEating in your posts!
