Editorial Reviews

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. ( Jan.)

    My "Go To" Gift for Friends or Family Diagnosed with Cancer

    I use this cookbook for making meals for myself, but it also provides fast and easy ideas for cooking for friends or family to help them through chemotherapy and/or radiation. It also is my favorite gift (or gift recommendation) to help a loved one and supporters through the scary reality of dealing with cancer in a positive way that promotes living life to its fullest and with optimism.

    A Keeper

    This book was one of the first books I bought after being diagnosed with Leukemia 7 years ago. This year is my third time fighting the illness. A definite keeper for anyone with a cancer diagnosis and their families and loved ones. The book is a little worn but like me, still holding on!

    Yes - get it

    I got this for my grandparents - my grandfather was just diagnosed with prosrate cancer and if this book did anything for them, above all else, it gave them a tremendous amount of information about the disease. Both of my grandparents studied the cookbook and kept phoning me with the new information they had learned. I would highly suggest it.

    Effective for Survivors, Great for their Loved Ones!

    I bought this cookbook for my uncle as way of helping him through his treatment. He loves the recipes and my mother found the instructions very easy to follow. The side effect color code system is very helpful and a reassuring touch, you can flip right to the ailment of the moment. I'm going to buy another copy for myself-- the recipes work whether the digestive trouble is caused by radiation or not.

    Living with Cancer...Indeed, LIVING!!!

    Great book and cookbook for cancer patients, survivors and anyone that wants some easy, and interesting recipes. Great advice as well on how to deal with the side affects of treatment and that there are comments from other patients in the book was a huge help for me.
