Editorial Reviews

Review

"There's so much to know about food and what fortifies our bodies. And what is a contributor to well-being. And this cookbook is a wonderful resource book to help all of us in the kitchen to eat great, to have wonderful meals, and to combine science with common sense." ~Sheryl Crow

From the Author

From Judith: 
It's not every cookbook that debuts with an intimate concert given by Sheryl Crow.
But the Back in the Swing Cookbook is not a typical cookbook, either.  This "survivorship center between two covers" can be life-changing for people who want support, guidance, and motivation along with great food and drink after breast cancer. 
It has been my privilege to work on this project with Barbara C. Unell, founder of The Back in the Swing nonprofit organization.

Format: Hardcover
Back in the Swing is about living well and eating well after you survive breast cancer. I have not had breast cancer but was drawn to this beautiful raspberry and blueberry covered book. The cover is part cloth and part hardcover... very unique feel with the two textures. The stories and information about survivorship and healthy lifestyle are inspiring and very doable. As a cookbook lover, I was impressed with the at-a-glance listing of "Back in the Swing Key Foods," especially since it included dark chocolate and coffee, two of my can't-live-without obsessions. AND the chapters start with DESSERT! What fun. The authors say there is no point to deprive yourself of pleasures, just do so in moderation. Hurray! The book is a great read for anyone and totally stresses LIVING. I liked the pages on having pets, the top 25 movie musicals of all time, meditation, breathing deeply, and shopping. Hope you try this book, it is delicious.

I didn't find many recipes and pictures that looked good to me. Most of the recipes had many ingredients and long preparation details. As a one-person household, recipes for 8 or 12 are of no interest--even 4 is questionable to reduce down. Also, too many quotes and extra chit-chat that I found rather annoying for a cookbook. I will go back through it again but will probably give it away.

This cookbook is absolutely gorgeous. I gave it to my mother, a breast cancer survivor, for christmas. I am trying to help her improve her diet, and this book is full of great ideas, tips, and delicious recipes.

Loved how the book is geared towards survivors, but anyone touched by breast cancer would appreciate this book. There are lots of tips throughout for how to get "back in the swing" after this experience.

All of the recipes that I have made so far have been delicious. It is also empowering to feel that you have some control over your recovery and this book definitely helps with that feeling. I love the stories on each page. They are uplifting and very informational.
