MPN Voice provides support to patients and their families across the world who have been diagnosed with rare blood cancers called Myeloproliferative Neoplasms. The chronic nature of these diseases mean that it is very important for those affected to maintain a healthy lifestyle and look after their general wellbeing. Nutrition plays a key role and recent research suggests that following a healthy, Mediterranean-style diet can help reduce inflammation in MPN patients, reducing symptoms and potentially changing future disease trajectories for the better.
This recipe book is inspired by this work and brings together some of our community’s favourite dishes. You’ll find recipes ranging from Mediterranean pastas and salads to stuffed peppers and lentil soups. Each of the recipes has a personal touch, featuring the name of the patient who kindly submitted it to the charity and occasionally, the story behind it. This book offers you the chance to make some of these dishes at home and try ingredients you may not normally cook with.
For many people, cooking is a form of relaxation and therapy which allows the everyday stresses and strains of work and office life to melt away. Food also has the power to bring people together, providing an opportunity to sit down with friends and family and connect with others over a shared meal.
We hope the 30 recipes within, which has been curated by the MPN community for the MPN community, will offer you new recipe ideas and help those who may be thinking about changing their diet, but aren’t sure where to begin. By purchasing the book, you will be making a valuable contribution to MPN Voice and its vital work in supporting people with rare blood cancers.
