From the Back Cover
This book is divided into two sections. The first, explains the science behind nutrition as a tool to prevent cancer. The second part provides over 150 great recipes and ideas on how to move from the science to the practicalities of making these healthy food options.
As an integrative physician providing practical advice to patients and families affected by cancer about healthy options that they can integrate in their care, I see this book as a great resource for information and help in addressing some of the nutritional questions that patients bring.

As an integrative oncologist, I firmly believe in the importance of consuming as many 'anti-cancer' foods as possible in our diet. Zest for Life is an excellent reference for anyone who wants to learn about how the foods we eat contribute to our overall health and the prevention of cancer.
Zest for Life discusses the science on how the Mediterranean diet protects against the DNA damaging effects of inflammation and oxidation, provides dietary tips to help mitigate some of the untoward side effects of cancer treatment, and shares practical food shopping guidelines to help us buy the best ingredients and not break the bank as we prepare easy to follow and tasty Mediterranean recipes.
Conner Middelmann-Whitney is an inspirational Mediterranean diet expert and chef. The pages of her book are filled with passion, clarity, and fun. This is a fantastic reference for my patients, and so well-written that it should be easy for everyone to follow. With enthusiasm, I highly recommend Zest for Life.
