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.
