"One Bite at a Time" was intended for people with cancer who need profound nourishment but who rarely have an appetite. The recipes smell good while cooking and are mouth-watering while eating. As Susan Lord writes on the cover: "Rebecca Katz is a genius at making nutritious food delicious..." I've given it as a gift to 2 cancer survivors.
But this cookbook really is for anybody and everybody. I am not a cancer survivor, but I have come to crave the dishes Ms. Katz has created. For starters, try the "Magic Mineral Broth". It is so simple to make and easy to store; it fills the house with divine aromas and tastes great. You can also use it as a base instead of water for making rice, etc.
My favorites are the soups, like "Carrot-Ginger Soup with Cashew Cream" and "Emerald City Soup". They don't take any time to make and they're unbelievably delicious. But there are also great recipes for chicken, salmon, vegetable and rice dishes as well as for desserts. Remember - these ingredients are good for you, and loaded with nutrients to help you heal, or keep you healthy.
I highly, unreservedly recommend this cookbook as a staple in everyone's kitchen.

I bought this book for my parents. My mother had seen it recommended in a cancer magazine. Since I have the Barnes and Nobles membership, I knew I could get it very quickly. My dad was recently diagnosed with cancer and my mom is the care taker, cook, dietician, etc. She says this book has many excellent, easy recipes. My dad's appetite and taste changes moment to moment since he has been on the chemo. This book has been a very tool for my mom.
