From the Publisher

Beth Baughman DuPree MD, FACS, breast cancer surgeon and author of The Healing Consciousness: A Doctor’s Journey to Healing
“As cancer survivors themselves, Annette and Kendall will educate you about your dietary choices, empower to make step-by-step changes to eat a healthier diet, and entertain you with their wit and charm.”  

Sue Friedman, DVM, Founder and Executive Director of FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered
“Whether you are a cancer survivor, previvor or someone looking to instill healthy eating habits into your daily life, Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen provides simple, delicious recipes and empowering information that can make a difference in your health and quality of life. The authors bring both their professional and personal experiences to the table. The result is a fun and informative book. ”   

Dr. Steven G. Eisenberg, Co-founder of California Cancer Associates for Research and Excellence and author of Dancing With The Doctor (2013)
“Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen offers, in one engaging and comprehensive package, what others don’t – first-hand experience, nutritional know-how, girlfriend-style support and tasty recipes - all designed to help kick cancer or keep you healthy. A healthy diet is an integral part of healing and fighting disease, and Annette and Kendall join you, step-by-step, and empower you to discover how easy and delicious eating well can be – starting with your very next meal!”  

Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
"...a beautiful, delicious, and effective way to improve your health at any time—whether or not you have cancer or any disease. In fact, I recommend that all follow this sort of diet for optimal health!"

Christine Pirello
Emmy Award-winning host of "Christina Cooks", Bestselling author of six cookbooks, including Cooking the Whole Foods Way
"Being diagnosed with cancer is a game-changer. As a survivor myself, I can more than identify with the terror, sadness, rage, and feeling of helplessness that comes with that diagnosis. You need support, love, great advice, and just a touch of humor to get you through it. This invaluable book has it all. Written by cancer survivors and based on their experiences, feelings and results, Annette and Kendall at once become your girlfriends, confidants, advisors, and comrades in your journey back to health. Their advice is sound, simple, easy-to-follow, and based in the reality of what it's like to live in the real world when you have cancer. I only wish I had this book when I was sick. . . how much easier my journey back to health would have been."

Victoria Moran
Author of Fit from Within
"Fun, friendly, and inclusive, Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen is an empowering way to take control at a time when you're feeling pretty powerless. The suggestions are supported by solid science, and the recipes would be yummy even if they weren't health-promoting and —maybe — life-saving. 

Joshua Rosenthal, MScED, Institute for Integrative Nutrition Founder and Director
"Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen encourages people to get in their kitchens and experience the healing power of good nutrition. I applaud Kendall and Annette for turning their diagnosis into an opportunity to teach others how to eat and live well."

Mark Hyman, MD, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, The Blood Sugar Solution
"Cancer doesn't just happen – it grows in a favorable environment of bad food and environmental toxins combined with a few genetic predispositions. The good news is that food is a powerful weapon against cancer both to reverse it and prevent it from coming back again.
Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen is an essential guide to using food as medicine and creating an inhospitable environment for cancer, while delighting your palette and invigorating your senses. Getting well has never been more fun or tasty!"

Taste for Life magazine

“This book is a powerful resource to help you make healthful dietary decisions and increase awareness of your body’s needs at any point in life.”

ALIVE magazine
Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen speaks to us on the level—one girlfriend to another....This book works because Ramke and Scott don’t mince their words. Instead they offer part guidebook and part cookbook that is peppered with refreshingly honest and insightful personal experiences. With Mother’s Day approaching, consider this book as one of the best gifts to give someone you know who is immersed in the world of cancer or defending themselves against its possibility.”

Tucson Citizen

“I highly recommend this collection.  Whether you are facing a cancer fight, know someone who is, or just want to improve the odds by eating healthier foods, this cookbook offers valuable guidance.”
