The Living Kitchen: Healing Recipes to Support Your Body During Cancer Treatment and Recovery
With nearly 100 whole food, healing, and nourishing recipes, The Living Kitchen will guide cancer patients and their caregivers through every stage of a diagnosis, from preparing for treatment and how to eat during therapy to combat side effects, to strengthening your body during remission. A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, frightening, and uncertain. Like many others, you may be unsure about what to do next, or where to access the resources you need. You'll want to learn more about what's ahead: 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 simply be too challenging. The Living Kitchen , the first cookbook by certified nutritionists Sarah Grossman and Tamara Green, will help cancer patients and their caregivers navigate every stage of their cancer therapy journey, from diagnosis to treatment to recovery. Tamara and Sarah are experts in cancer care cooking. Within the pages of this indispensable guide, they 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. You'll also find 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--all accompanied by stunning photography and a simple, user-friendly design. 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. The Living Kitchen will give you comfort in knowing that your body will be nourished and supported during (and even after) cancer treatment. At once informative and inspiring, empowering and reassuring, The Living Kitchen will educate cancer patients and their caregivers about the healing power of food. It is the essential resource for anyone experiencing cancer, undergoing treatment, or in remission.
