With nearly 100 nourishing recipes designed to combat side effects related to cancer therapy, this book is an essential resource for anyone experiencing cancer, undergoing treatment, or in remission.
A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, frightening, and uncertain. You'll want to learn what to expect from chemotherapy and radiation, how you'll navigate the often debilitating side effects that come with treatment, and what you should eat to support your body at a time when eating and cooking may be too challenging. The Living Kitchenwill help cancer patients and their caregivers navigate every stage of their cancer therapy journey, from diagnosis to treatment to recovery.
Within the pages of this indispensable guide, certified nutrionists 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, and offer strategies to prepare your body, life, and kitchen for treatment. With nearly 100 stress-free, healthy, freezer-friendly, and flavorful 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, The Living Kitchen is accompanied by stunning photography and a simple, user-friendly design. With energizing snacks and breakfasts; superfood smoothies, juices and elixirs; soups and stews, and nutrient-rich, flavorful main dishes, these are recipes that you, your family, and your caregivers will all enjoy. The Living Kitchen will give you comfort in knowing that your body will be nourished and supported during (and even after) cancer treatment.
