PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:
“Cancer treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation can be almost as hard on the body as the disease itself, and detailed nutrition advice is usually not on the program. This informative guide to fighting cancer from the inside out...corrects that with a wealth of easy, immediate steps to speed up the healing process through diet. ...Katz’s experience with cancer patients and their long, often frustrating recovery lends authority to her wise, common-sense approach.”
—Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

It's important to note that many recipes involve a lot of prep. Each recipe notes a prep and cook time but I found it takes much longer than what is listed (I may just be too slow?!) many are listed as 10 minute prep so if you're good in the kitchen this may not be an issue for you! Also, some ingredients you might not find on your grocer's shelf or hard to find if you have limited choices in food markets. I was able to find most everything by going to regular grocery stores and the local co-op market. Katz does provide a list of online resources and offers substitution ideas so most of the recipes are flexible. There are also informational pages describing the possibly less familiar items and why they are healthful.
Since, as noted, many recipes involve quite a bit of prep time, being able to cook ahead and store properly allows the patient/care giver to cook when feeling up to it and then store so as to have healthy food available quickly when needed. This book is also a great resource for care givers or people wanting to bring a meal to a friend to provide a nourishing, tasty dish. I almost took off a star for the complexity of many of the meals but love it otherwise so much I stuck with 5 stars. You can also check out Katz's online videos to get to know her a little and watch her make some of the recipes. Definitely a sensible, information packed and well researched cookbook - definitely recommend!
