Book Synopsis



This new and revised edition of the IACP award-winning cookbook brings the healing power of delicious, nutritious foods to those whose hearts and bodies crave a revitalizing meal, through 150 new and updated recipes.

Featuring science-based, nutrient-rich recipes that are easy to prepare and designed to give patients a much-needed boost by stimulating appetite and addressing treatment side effects including fatigue, nausea, dehydration, mouth and throat soreness, tastebud changes, and weight loss. A step-by-step guide helps patients nutritionally prepare for all phases of treatment, and a full nutritional analysis accompanies each recipe. This remarkable resource teaches patients and caregivers how to use readily available powerhouse ingredients to build a symptom- and cancer-fighting culinary toolkit. Blending fantastic taste and meticulous science, these recipes for soups, vegetable dishes, proteins, and sweet and savory snacks are rich in the nutrients, minerals, and phytochemicals that help patients thrive during treatment.

This second edition also includes a dozen new recipes--many of which are simpler and less complicated, for cancer patients to prepare on their low days--as well as a list of cancer-fighting foods that can be incorporated into everyday life without stepping behind the stove. Rebecca has also revised the text with the most up-to-date scientific research and includes a section on how friends and family can build a culinary support team.



Review Quotes




"Rebecca Katz has produced an invaluable resource. Instead of telling patients to 'just eat a balanced diet, ' we can now show them how to control disease and optimize health with delicious, nourishing food from The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen. I recommend this book highly."
--Andrew Weil, MD

"Rebecca Katz brilliantly combines delicious recipes with nutritious ingredients to help promote and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:

"Cancer treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation can be almost as hard on the body as the disease itself, and detailed nutrition advice is usually not on the program. This informative guide to fighting cancer from the inside out...corrects that with a wealth of easy, immediate steps to speed up the healing process through diet. ...Katz's experience with cancer patients and their long, often frustrating recovery lends authority to her wise, common-sense approach."
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"If you or someone you love is battling this tough, tenacious illness, you'll want to use every tool The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen provides."
--Energy Times

"An amazing book...with flavorful recipes...simply delicious."
--Washington Post

"a must-have cookbook for learning how to cook and eat during treatment and after."
--Kairol Rosenthal, author of Everything Changes: The Insider's Guide to Cancer in Your 20s and 30s

"The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen is an incredibly rich and satisfying resource--it is a must for people living with and beyond cancer, and should be mandatory reading for all health care professionals. This great gift will have a profound impact on the health and well-being of all who partake!"

"If food is medicine, Rebecca Katz is one of the great healers. The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen is a book for anyone who wants to eat as if their life matters."

"A book to nourish loved ones. The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen: Nourishing, Big Flavor Recipes for Cancer Treatment and Recovery--This is a book I have added to my shelf and it will always be within reach. I think this book could be called many things--a mother's handbook to nourishing your loved ones or cooking to cure.
