   Thanks for the information about the book. It so happens I have an article sitting on my table about cancer-fighting superfoods written by Rebecca Katz. Lots of good information there and I'll look for her cookbook the next time we are at Wegmans which may be later today or tomorrow.
   One of the things she said is that people who are going through chemo recover faster and have more energy when they increase their protein to 80 grams daily. She recommends using whey power (which is easily absorbed and won't add upset to the treatment) in smoothies made with frozen fruit and plain yogurt. I'm going to be adding that to my diet as soon as we get to the store.

   I've been to Guitar Works several times with Pete and the Moosewood is a great place to go...I LOVE the juice grapefruit juice EVER!!! And I do know about the Oriental market you are talking about....never stopped in but next time I'm in Ithaca I will. I appreciate the information.
