Right after Food As Medicine in June 2010, we received the following email from a participant:
Thank you and the staff for an incredible experience.
It is still very alive for me. I came home and right away started
weekly food demonstrations at the oncology clinic
where I work. Patients are loving it!
Peace & blessings,
Mary-Beth Charno, RN, BSN, HNB-BC, OCN

This kind of email goes in my electronic folder labeled Cloud Nine. Seriously– what would you like to hear if you managed a nutrition training program for healthcare professionals? The paycheck is not why we work late. So I contacted Mary-Beth for details, and she was kind enough to share photos and recipes.
What more perfect thing to do with her captive audience than sharing simple, nourishing food ideas?
Her patients agree:
“I learn so much from Mary-Beth when coming for chemo treatment.”
“I feel cared for while I’m here, body and mind.”
“I’ve always wondered what kombu was!”
Thank YOU, Mary-Beth
