More About the Author

Rebecca Katz, M.S.


I've spent more than a decade motivating people to eat well.

My primary tool is flavor, as I show people how great taste and great nutrition can joyfully coexist at the dinner table.

I have faith in the allure of the kitchen and promise that if you're inspired by the results, you'll find yourself wanting to cook more and more. Creating meals that enhance your health and well-being while caressing your taste buds is irresistible.

A myriad of food related experiences, including a sojourn to Italy, where I studied Mediterranean cuisine with chefs and signoras from Florence to Sicily, shaped my philosophy that health-supportive food must taste great in order to be nourishing and healing.

They are as good, or really, far better than regular recipies.

This an excellent book. I bought it for my mother-in-law who has pancreatic cancer. I am a nutritionist and she looked to me for some assistance. My main concern is to just keep her appetite so she keeps eating. I happened upon this book at a book festival and was pleasantly surprised. The recipes were nutritious, not complicated and had aroused all of the senses--she loves the smells and the tastes of everything we make. While she was researching specialized diet books that gave her a list of foods that she should eat, this book brought it all together. It bridged that gap. It also has some wonderful stories inside. It should be given to all cancer patients but then again, I find myself making these recipes for my own family--We love it just as much as she does!!

I have been fortunate enough not to have had cancer, but this book is terrific for anyone who wants to eat well. The format is great and informative. It is a pleasure to read a cookbook that is accessible. When I read it I feel like I am in the kitchen with the author by my side.The beautiful color photographs will entice you to head to your kitchen.I have made several of the recipes and they are delicious and easy to make. Rebecca Katz's pantry ideas are great! One stop at an organic grocer and your pantry will be stocked with healthful ingredients that you can now use for everything you cook. Using this book is an easy way to make your lifestyle more healthful.

What a fabulous cookbook! The recipes are so interesting to read and for quantities that allow freezing. The two squash soup was the best thing I've ever eaten that didn't contain chocolate. The food is brilliant spiced. Ms. Katz is a genius at designing food that is both healthy and delicious. My mom died of cancer 12 years ago, and I so wish I had this book then. Now I'm cooking for my health and tastebuds, and sharing this with food with my husband and friends. Several have bought the cookbook for the humor, the pictures, the recipes as well as the info about maintaining high quality nutrition.

I have always been a foodie. Ever since I was a young girl, I've loved to cook and have taken great pride in my discerning palate. Unfortunately, my passion for red meat and rich food had to be redirected after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. While on my quest to learn how to "cook for cancer," I searched high and low for cookbooks that featured food that was delicious, nutritious, easy to prepare, and likely to be embraced by my friends and family. It wasn't until I met chef Rebecca Katz that my search finally ended. As a student of Rebecca's, I was fortunate enough to learn first-hand how to make mouth-watering dishes using healing, nutrient-rich ingredients. Fortunately for those who have not had an opportunity to take classes from Rebecca, you can now benefit from her knowledge, wisdom, and culinary prowess because she has captured the essence of everything I learned in her new book, "One Bite at a Time." If you or anyone you know suffers from cancer--or any illness caused by a compromised immune system--one of the best gifts that you could give yourself or a loved one is "One Bite at a Time."

I'm a health supportive chef and oncology nurse and have been working with people with cancer for over 25 years. It's about time that there is such a beautiful and sensible book on whole foods cooking for those living with and through cancer. Bravo, Rebecca Katz---you've done it!

I use this book daily for recipe ideas. All the recipes I have tried have been excellent. The different flavors and variety and information is perfect for anyone. You don't have to have cancer or be a cancer survivor or care taker. The recipes are wonderful. The Magic Mineral Broth recipe is just the best. I use it often as the base to making rice instead of plain water. Everyone who have tasted my rice have just loved it. The broth can be frozen and I at times drink it straight instead of teas. It is full of vitamins and minerals that the body needs. Try it for yourself!!

This book is filled with nourishment for both the body and soul. While the title clearly indicates that these recipes were created to provide nutritious meals for cancer patients whose needs are heightened on so many levels, the book is also a guide to healthy eating and cooking regardless of your stage in the health/life cycle. I have made many of these recipes for my family and friends and also for people undergoing cancer treatments. Each recipe has been a complete joy to try, because the food is just so incredibly good! I have been grateful for the tools and recommendations that Rebecca provides in her book for helping cancer patients and their caregivers through food. Rebecca Katz is a true professional. And her book is a gift to all of us who love to cook and who love to nourish ourselves and others.

I bought this book for my sister who is beginning her chemo. The dishes we made together were so delicious I bought a copy of the book for myself. The Magic Mineral Broth is so good I keep a pitcher of it in the refrigerator and have a glass of it almost every day...yes, it's tasty cold. I'm fortunate my local grocery stores have a reasonable array of organic foods; the tiny local Asian market had most of the rest, and I made a trek to Whole Foods for the two items I couldn't find locally. The butternut squash stuffed with rice and the roast chicken (and subsequent roast chicken broth) are really "to live for."
