Review

“Rebecca Katz believes in ‘the power of yum,’ ...And the recipes and information included in this new book testify to her mastery of the concept. ...The treasure trove of delicious, nutrient-packed (and beautifully photographed) recipes...bring both joy and optimal healing to readers.”
Women & Cancer, April 2010

"a must-have for all who are going through cancer radiation or chemotherapy treatments."
—HealthCastle.com, the largest online nutrition community run by Registered Dietitians, February 2010

"it cuts through all the confusing data and offers tangible ways to reach out and be helpful."

“Filled with delicious and delightful recipes, the book IS fun. It is a valuable resource not only for those battling cancer and for their caregivers but also for those of us blessed with good health.”
United Media Syndicate

“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

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!”

5.0 out of 5 stars Your War Chest Against Cancer Nov. 15 2011
Format:Hardcover
A very dear friend of mine gave me this fabulous cookbook during the Christmas holidays called 'Cancer-Fighting Kitchen: Nourishing, Big-Flavour Recipes for Cancer Treatment and Recovery' by Rebecca Katz with Mat Edelson.

Since my diagnosis of Breast Cancer in October 2010, I have been given and purchased many cookbooks, reference guides to leading a healthier, active lifestyle, etc' I think I am covered for the next 9 months in terms of research and enjoyable reading! However, I thought it important to pass this along as it is one of those books that your family would benefit wholly from. What sets this cookbook apart from others is its unique approach to your kitchen and converting your refrigerator into its own cancer-fighting battle ground plus how to take care of yourself during Chemotherapy treatment.

From Chapter One's Cancer-Fighting Tool Kit and learning things about the four pantry staples, to easing side effects from treatment to easy recipes to relieving symptoms such as anemia, constipation, fatigue, nausea and vomiting. There is something about everything in terms of easing this tough period of a patients life.

And one of the perks of this Chapter, apart from the delicious recipes, is the Culinary Pharmacy section starting on page 28. It's your very own cheat-list to adding immunity boosting spices, seeds, and nuts to meals you may have only added mild seasoning to such as salt and pepper.

It also includes very important vegetables most recognized as natural anti-inflammatories, digestions aids, nausea reducers, anti-bacterials, appetite stimulators, and NF-kB regulators.

My personal favourite is learning the benefits of adding fresh and dry herbs to dishes and not just as last minute add-ins or garnishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Information Sept. 30 2010
Format:Hardcover
I'm going through chemotherapy and don't have a clue about what to eat for optimal health. This book, "The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen: Nourishing, Big-Flavor Recipes for Cancer Treatment and Recovery," is the answer to my quest. Nothing about Cancer is easy, but this book has helped me where I could find no help before. Practical help. I can't cook at present since I can't stand, but I can point to a page and ask my significant other to try to put it together. She tries hard, I'll give her that! Nothing about cooking is easy either, especially when one hasn't learned the Julia Child approach to life. This book makes a very challenging disease a little easier to manage. My many thanks to everyone who put it together - especially, of course, Rebecca katz! The photo's were great as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable tool in my Kitchen June 12 2012
By MJ
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was sent this book when I was in the middle of my Chemo treatments. Although I read everything I could get my hands on during this time, this book was the first to let me know that I might loose my sense of taste...and it was right and I did.
I have since purchased another one so I can keep my copy and lend one to friends who need it.
Thank you for a great book that I would and do recommend to those who would use it.
It is now part of my regular kitchen cookbooks.
MaryJane :)
