Chef Rebecca Katz shares delicious, nourishing recipes for cancer patients, who often experience culinary ups and downs because of sudden dietary restrictions and poor appetite due to damaged taste buds from harsh treatments. One Bite at a Time provides caretakers with a tangible way to nurture loved ones through easy-to-digest meals that offer maximum flavor while boosting the immune system.
Rebecca Katz teaches creative culinary solutions to people navigating cancer treatment and its aftereffects. For those whose appetites have been turned off by illness, Rebecca's One Bite at a Time is an instant turn-on to tasty, nourishing food. In this comprehensive cookbook, she shares delicious, immune-boosting recipes for people living with cancer, their caregivers, and the ever-growing number of cancer survivors.
One Bite at a Time features more than 85 simple-to-prepare, sumptuous recipes. From little nibbles to satisfying entrees, Rebecca's flexible approach is designed for both the individual and the entire family to enjoy. Dishes such as Poached Coconut-Ginger Salmon, Spinach Orzo with Pine Nuts and Feta, Taxicab Yellow Tomato Soup, and Magic Mineral Broth reinvigorate the appetite with ingredients that help bolster the body's immune system. To accompany the recipes, Rebecca offers down-to-earth information and helpful advice for those dealing with the culinary ups and downs often experienced during treatment. Learn what friends and family can do to best pitch in; discover easy substitutions for "forbidden" foods; look up "nutrition-at-a-glance" information for each recipe: and see how to wake up taste buds in any dish by using just a few basic staples from the pantry.
Rebecca's caring, humour-filled recipe notes will warm your heart and remind you that, along with a good meal, laughter truly can be the best medicine. At a time when you may feel that nothing is under your control, something as simple as creating a nutritious, healing dish for yourself or a loved one can be a reaffirmation of your humanity and a tangible way to nurture someone you care about.
