 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.

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.

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.

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!

Format: Paperback
I have 6 shelves of cookbooks and will keep this one forever. My copy is dog eared and soup stained...testimony to all the use it gets! I have found the recipes to be not just delicious but easy to follow, making it user friendly to both seasoned and novice cooks.

Rebecca's recipes incorporate a variety of fresh, healthy, easily obtained ingredients designed towards deep nourishment and good health for everyone....whether or not they are navigating a cancer diagnosis. I found that her reminder to the caregiving team to eat well too to be brilliant and wise.

This is way more than just a cookbook...it is chock full of fun stories, useful tips for conjouring up flavor, kitchen tricks and timesaving techniques, and includes a section that indexes the recipes with fridge/freezer storage times. There is even a very helpful section about how to set up a support network and culinary team. It is a complete package!

I am a culinary instructor and recommend this book to all my students. Every single one of them has told me they love this book and use it ALL the time with rave reviews from their clients and families.

One Bite at a Time: Nourishing Recipes for Cancer Survivors and Their Friends
While this book is aimed at getting good, dense nutrition into cancer survivors (and those going through treatment), I found the recipes to be colorful, tasty and easy to prepare, though some of the ingredients are not the everyday find.

This takes you back to another time when broths were made from scratch--or can be purchased as an alternative backup plan. This cookbook has inspired me to begin to cook again rather than use so many processed, empty calorie meals and has helped me to realize that whole, lesser processed food can also make me feel better, lose weight, and look my best.
