Overview

An essential resource and cookbook for anyone diagnosed with cancer, filled with nearly 100 nourishing recipes designed to support treatment and recovery.

A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, frightening, and uncertain. Like many others, you may be unsure about what to do next. You'll want to learn more about what's ahead and what you should eat to nutritionally support your body at a time when eating and cooking may simply be too challenging. The Living Kitchen will help cancer patients and their caregivers navigate every stage of their cancer therapy, before, during, and after treatment.
    Within the pages of this indispensable guide, certified nutritionists Sarah Grossman and Tamara Green provide easy-to-understand, research-based nutritional information on the science behind how food relates to your health and the effects of cancer. As experts in cancercare cooking, Sarah and Tamara have included nearly 100 healthy, easy-to-prepare, whole-food recipes specially designed to relieve specific symptoms and side effects of cancer and its therapies (including loss of appetite, sore mouth, altered taste buds, nausea, and more) and to strengthen your body once in recovery. With energizing snacks and breakfasts; superfood smoothies, juices, and elixirs; soothing soups and stews; and nutrient-rich, flavorful main dishes, these are recipes that you, your family, and your caregivers will all enjoy.
    At once informative and inspiring, empowering and reassuring, The Living Kitchen will educate cancer patients and their caregivers about the power of food.

Read an Excerpt

PROPER NUTRITION IS KEY Hearing the words “You have cancer” is an overwhelming and scary experience. During this time, you and your loved ones will work closely with your health care team to figure out the best plan for you. Regardless of the treatment, be it surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or alternative therapies, supporting your body through your diet is essential. Proper nutrition can help keep your body strong as it undergoes intense therapies to kill cancer cells, and what you eat can mitigate common side effects like nausea, loss of appetite, and fatigue. Colorful vegetables and fruits, healthy proteins, and good fats possess antitumor, antiangiogenesis, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimutagenic properties. This means that many of the foods you can eat have powerful anticancer nutrients that work to support your health and recovery. These foods act synergistically with each other and with treatments to help speed up recovery time and make some therapies more effective.
