The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen shows you how to nourish and care for loved ones going through cancer treatment. When first published in 2009, it won two prestigious awards from the International Association of Culinary Professionals, including the People’s Choise Award. Now updated with the latest medical research, and with new recipes and images throughout, this collection features 150 science-based, nutrient-rich recipes that are easy to prepare and designed to give patients a much-needed boost. Rebecca Katz’s dishes are specifically designed to stimulate appetite and address treatment side effects including fatigue, nausea, dehydration, mouth and throat soreness, taste bud 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. Whole foods, big-flavor ingredients, and attractive presentations round out the customized menu plans.
This remarkable resource teaches patients and caregivers how to use readily available ingredients to build a symptom- and cancer-fighting culinary pharmacy. 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 phtyochemicals that help patients thrive during treatment. With The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen, you can bring the healing power of delicious, nutritious foods to those whose hearts and bodies crave a revitalizing meal.
