Cookbooks for Cancer Survivors
I’ve done a TON of research on how to fight cancer with our forks. There are many experts in the field of cancer nutrition, most of which contradict each other often. I believe each of us has to make food choices according to our instincts. Here are a few of the resources I’ve found most helpful…
The Cancer Fighting Kitchen by Rebecca Katz, MS. Rebecca has been in the culinary world for years and currently runs The Healing Kitchen Institute, an evolving platform dedicated to educating individuals and communities about the power of food as medicine and nourishment.
Cook for Your Life by Ann Ogden, a two time cancer survivor and chef. Her cooking skills helped her manage treatment side effects better than her fellow survivors so she’s made it her mission to educate us on how to cook and eat during and after treatment. I met her at a conference in Denver. She’s delightful!
Crazy Sexy Kitchen by Kris Carr. Kris was diagnosed with a very rare form of Stage 4 cancer at a young age. Although she is considered ‘un-curable’ she lives a happy, healthy, vibrant life by eating a plant based diet, exercising and meditating. I LOVE everything she does!
Radical Remission by Dr. Kelly Turner. Dr. Turner is a Harvard educated researcher who has dedicated her life to finding the commonalities between patients who have survived against all odds. She had found 9 things that all radical remission survivors have in common. This book isn’t a cook book but it’s too great not to share here!
