    Being tired is a common complaint during cancer treatment. The reasons for fatigue can include the cancer itself, stress, constipation, diarrhea, infections, radiation, not eating well, inactivity, poor sleep, medication side effects, and anemia.

    Fatigue can make meal preparation exhausting, and when you are finished with preparation, you may not even feel like eating. Make it easy on yourself during the times when you are most fatigued by taking a break from cooking, as you can do with this smoothie recipe.
