I'm Alexandra. My friends often shorten that to Alyx.
I have had cancer and the treatment for that made me extremely unwell and unable to eat a lot of the time because of the treatment side-effects.
Helping you find something to eat when you are struggling to eat because of your cancer treatment side-effects is what I do now. I teach how you can change, modify and adapt the consistency of food so it agrees with, and does not aggravate your side-effects – so you can nourish your body with vital nutrition.
I also help your friends and family with tips on how to 'keep it together' when the cancer word comes up. Yep, people can act really weird around friends with the big C. Plus they can say the most inappropriate things. It's about making everyone comfortable so you can continue to hang together during a really bad time.
What am I doing right now? When I'm not in the kitchen creating nutritious foods you will be able to eat, I am writing blogs, posting articles and videoing about cancer and treatment-related malnutrition. All this is done under the watchful eye of my cat, Tam. Thanks for stopping by x

My gift for public speaking found me after my experience with cancer. My true passion is passing on my knowledge to help those in a similar situation. I give talks on cancer survivorship, maintaining relationships with friends & family when you have cancer, how to modify recipes to suit your treatment side-effects so you can eat & enjoy food again, and my own personal story too. I can inject humour into my talks and can connect with any audience. I have been known to emcee events as well.
Cancer taught me a number of things - mostly that I could help others.
When you are struggling with what to do and say to a friend with cancer - I can help you.
