Product Details


Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In Betty Crocker's Living with Cancer Cookbook doctors Kris Ghosh and Linda Carson along with Elyse Cohen begin with a discussion of the disease and how to cope then outline and identify dietary considerations. A q&a section answers patients' common questions, such as "Why am I too tired to eat?" and is followed by such soothing recipes as Berry-Banana Smoothie. Each dish in the main section, many from patients, includes nutritional and fiber information and is color-coded to indicate which side-effects it helps. One important tip is that extra flavor helps to stimulate the appetite and mask unpleasant tastes from radiation and chemotherapy. Pasta with Chicken in Chili Sauce and Savory Scallops and Shrimp are among the temptations anyone might enjoy. The full-color presentation lifts the spirits.

From the Back Cover

Written with the expert help of two oncologists (Dr Ghosh and Dr Carson) and a nutritionist, this book tackles the challenge of eating while undergoing cancer treatment.

Nutrition is a critical factor in weathering cancer treatment and patients are highly motivated to change their diet and are eager for information. This book gives them 130 delicious recipes (without sacrificing taste) that provide the best in nutrition for people undergoing treatment. These recipes are flagged to show which ones help most with the most common side effects of cancer treatments: constipation, diarrhoea, mouth sores and nausea. Dr Ghosh also answers specific questions on how to handle these side-effects.

There are quotes, inspirational anecdotes and practical tips from real-life cancer patients and cancer survivors throughout the book. Designed with not only those undergoing treatment in mind, this cookbook's recipes are geared not only towards easy preparation for patients - often tired from treatment - but also their family and carers who may be helping out with cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Betty Crocker's Living with Cancer Cookbook April 22 2002
Format:Hardcover
I actually do not have cancer but am going through chemotherapy treatments for Hepatitis C, and found this book wonderfully encouraging and helpful. I have all the possible side effects and so I have lots of trouble eating. I am on a weekly treatment for a year so there are some days each week whenI can't eat. What I found the best about the book are the great easy recipes and the comments by patients and Dr. Ghosh. I found many recipes which I have already tried and my family loved the results. The recipes are easy and you probably already have the items at home or they are readily available. The book has helped encourage me to continue treatments and given me lots of easy food to prepare for my family.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Manual for Living with Cancer March 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Having lived with cancer for 8 years and having had over one hundred treatments so far, I am thrilled to find a book that really talks to patients from patients who have lived through the same thing I am going through. This book shares real world recipes that are easy to eat and easy to make. In addition, the recipes have been eaten by patients who have the same problems I have had namely nausea, constipation, mouth sores, diarrhea and special diets such as neutropenia and low residue. The lists of recipes on pages 48 & 49 help me and family members chose food that I can eat AND that will benefit me for the side effects I am going through. This is incredibly encouraging!!! I especially appreciate the Q & A section from Dr. Ghosh and the diet plans for the special diets in the back of the book. Another great feature that I love are the special tips pages such as Snacks (p109), Humor and Healing (p149), Food during Treatments (p207), and Great Gifts (p223). I think this book would be the best gift to give to a cancer patient going through treatment. The best part of this book are the real quotes from real patients on nearly every recipe in the book. This book is a both a manual for Living with Cancer AND an excellent cookbook with tried and true recipes. Thanks Betty Crocker!!!

Not only does Dr. Ghosh give good advise and explainations to what is happening to a cancer patient, his recipies are great too. He explains why some things happen and what to do to combat them. This cookbook is not only good for the patient but for the family as well. The notes and question and answer section will help everyone involved with a cancer patient unterstand the issues surrounding the disease much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you LIVING with cancer? Jan. 9 2007
By L. Humphreys - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I gave this book to my grandmother. It has tips on dealing with nasea, how to prepare food so it doesn't taste metalic, etc... Lots of real and useful information for getting proper nutrition. My grandmother wasn't in the right frame of mind to accept the information. Good food will greatly contribute to our health and well being, I'm sad she could not allow herself this. It is a great book without being to new agey- after all it's by America's kitchen sweetheart, Betty Crocker. How more traditional can you get? Best of health to you and yours.
