About the Author

 THE AUTHOR SCOOP

If you had to boil your book’s message down to one sentence, what would it be? Good nutrition and great taste don’t have to sit at opposite ends of the table! What are you working on now? I’m working on a second book for people undergoing cancer treatment that will cross reference specific symptoms and cancer types with foods that will bolster the effectiveness and outcome of their treatment. Do you eat your vegetables? I love my veggies. Especially the stud vegetable, broccoli! I even love my dark leafy greens, sautéed in a bath of olive oil and garlic. Tell me something that other people might not know about you. I’m a certified food fondler. Have any good pet stories? Bella is my 4 ½ year old Portuguese Water Dog. She is the ultimate kitchen dog with an amazing nose. Currently, she has a job—every Monday, I bring her to a clinic in San Anselmo where she is a part of the second Canine Cancer Scent Study in the country. A dog’s olfactory senses are 800% more sensitive than humans. A dog can smell cancerous molecules through the breath, even before a scan can diagnose the presence of cancer in the body. Dogs are redefining the “Pet Scan.” She works for treats. Her nose is so sensitive, that if I am making one of my regular dishes, and I forget to add the carrots, she will take her paw and scratch my leg to remind me.

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.

Format: Paperback
One Bite at a Time is a cookbook by Rebecca Katz designed for cancer survivors and cancer patients. Its goal is simple yet all too difficult: to create food that fits within the dietary constraints of cancer survivors, nourishes them, and yet tastes so delicious to their altered taste buds and rebellious systems that they'll want to eat it. This food is also designed to be easy for them and their caregivers to make at home.

Ms. Katz set out on this course because she had family and friends who were diagnosed with cancer, and whom she wanted to help care for. She noted that many patients didn't know how to convert the limited lists of foods they were given into something they'd like, so she put her knowledge as a chef to work creating food they would actually enjoy.

She does more than that, however. She includes simple instructions for using a few basic ingredients to help you balance the flavors of any dish to your liking, so that however your taste buds have been affected, you'll be able to (with a little practice) make food that tastes good to you. She has incredible understanding of and empathy for the particular food and taste problems cancer survivors suffer, and that shines through in this book.

Here's the rub: the recipes in this book are so delicious and flavorful, and so healthy, that I'd recommend EVERYONE go out and buy a copy. That way, not only can you enjoy the benefits of these recipes and the information on flavors, but the next time you find out that a relative, friend, or neighbor has cancer (sadly, an all-too-common occurrence these days), instead of feeling helpless, you'll know exactly what you can do to help a little.

We made a fruit tart from this cookbook that was absolutely awesome.

I am absolutely 100% convinced that Rebecca's recipes helped save my best friend's life. We used her book and her system of upping the flavor of food to make the most amazing, delicious, and proactively nutritious meals I've ever eaten! (And as someone who belonged to a cookbook club for years, that's saying a lot!) The truth about dealing with cancer is that things have to change. You've got to eat healthy to get healthy - and this has to be part of your overall approach to healing and kicking cancer's butt. This book is your best resource to help you get that done!

I knew how to cook delicious food, but when it came to cooking delicious nutritious food that would actually help boost the immune system, I was clueless. What average person knows that?! Thankfully, Rebecca has written this amazing book - it teaches you about what's good and healthful, gives amazing recipes, and most of all she is dedicated to "Yum" in every bite. Major yum in every bite. This food is completely and totally delicious.

Rebecca's book did more than change my best friend's life, it changed my life too. I now look at food in a whole new way. And now I know how to get the flavor to "pop" to its fullest so that it's so amazingly tasty that everybody says "yum" with every bite. Read about her FASS system - it will forever change your cooking and take the flavor of your food to a whole new level.

I am sincerely thankful to Rebecca for creating these recipes. The food is nutritious and healing. This book should be your guide to cooking for loved ones with cancer, and should be the new staple in your life to help you fight that battle. And you will love the recipes so much they'll become a part of your life, too, even if you are already healthy! What a great way to continue your good health!

One Bite at a Time is the best cookbook yet I've seen that uses the current medically substantiated emphasis on vegetables to help the person fighting or preventing cancer to heal.Recipes contain no sugar or white flour and are full of fresh herbs and nutritional spices with gorgeous attractive color photos of the healthy foods easy to prepare and digest.

Format: Paperback
When my mother was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, I knew I would do everything I could to help her get well again. I quit my job and flew back to the east coast from Seattle to be with my parents while my mother underwent chemo treatment. Along with taking her to and from appointments and keeping the house tidy, it was my job to cook nutritious food for my family. We found this book in the local library and it soon became the most useful book in the house.

I love cooking and have a lot of experience cooking at home, though I hate cooking fussy or difficult recipes. Not only was I able to cook everything in the book my mother wanted, I was able to do it easily and the results were delicious. Most savvy home cooks can track down the ingredients fairly easily, though there are a few recipes that may require a trip to the Asian market if you live in a more gastronomically conservative area. I have the food sensibilities of an urban West Coast-er - everything must be fresh, organic, unprocessed and made from scratch. This book definitely delivered on all of those requirements.

The recipes themselves tasted wonderful and satisfied my tastebuds as well as my mother's and my very picky stepfather's. There were times my mom refused to try what I made and that was disheartening. There will always be those kinds of days when dealing with cancer patients. However if I was able to get her to put just one bite in her mouth, she'd usually have a bit more. She was often surprised at how much she enjoyed her food when she thought she couldn't. Many times I prepared something for her she didn't want to try and was overjoyed to find she liked it a lot.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for delicious and healthful recipes, not just cancer patients.
