From Publishers Weekly:
"Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen: The Girlfriend’s Cookbook and Guide to Using Real Food to Fight Cancer by Annette Ramke and Kendall Scott (Sept). From two cancer survivors, a down-to-earth guide in which two women “share, girlfriend-style, real-life knowledge and experience about the healing power of food”—whether readers are in the midst of 'Cancer World', recovering after surviving cancer, or just want to eat healthier."
"...a beautiful, delicious, and effective way to improve your health at any time—whether or not you have cancer or any disease. In fact, I recommend that all follow this sort of diet for optimal health!"— Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
"Being diagnosed with cancer is a game-changer. As a survivor myself, I can more than identify with the terror, sadness, rage, and feeling of helplessness that comes with that diagnosis. You need support, love, great advice, and just a touch of humor to get you through it. This invaluable book has it all. Written by cancer survivors and based on their experiences, feelings and results, Annette and Kendall at once become your girlfriends, confidants, advisors, and comrades in your journey back to health. Their advice is sound, simple, easy-to-follow, and based in the reality of what it's like to live in the real world when you have cancer. I only wish I had this book when I was sick. . . how much easier my journey back to health would have been." — Christina Pirello, Emmy Award-winning host of "Christina Cooks" Bestselling author of six cookbooks, including Cooking the Whole Foods Way
"Fun, friendly, and inclusive, Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen is an empowering way to take control at a time when you're feeling pretty powerless. The suggestions are supported by solid science, and the recipes would be yummy even if they weren't health-promoting and —maybe — life-saving. — Victoria Moran Author of Fit from Within
"Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen encourages people to get in their kitchens and experience the healing power of good nutrition. I applaud Kendall and Annette for turning their diagnosis into an opportunity to teach others how to eat and live well." — Joshua Rosenthal, MScED Institute for Integrative Nutrition Founder and Director
“An essential guide to using food as medicine and creating an inhospitable environment for cancer, while delighting your palette and invigorating your senses. Getting well has never been more fun or tasty!” —Mark Hyman, MD, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, The Blood Sugar Solution
“As cancer survivors themselves, Annette and Kendall will educate you about your dietary choices, empower to make step-by-step changes to eat a healthier diet, and entertain you with their wit and charm.” —Beth Baughman DuPree MD, FACS, breast cancer surgeon and author of The Healing Consciousness: A Doctor’s Journey to Healing
“Whether you are a cancer survivor, previvor or someone looking to instill healthy eating habits into your daily life, Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen provides simple, delicious recipes and empowering information that can make a difference in your health and quality of life. The authors bring both their professional and personal experiences to the table. The result is a fun and informative book. ” —Sue Friedman, DVM, Founder and Executive Director of FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered
“Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen offers, in one engaging and comprehensive package, what others don’t – first-hand experience, nutritional know-how, girlfriend-style support and tasty recipes – all designed to help kick cancer or keep you healthy. A healthy diet is an integral part of healing and fighting disease, and Annette and Kendall join you, step-by-step, and empower you to discover how easy and delicious eating well can be – starting with your very next meal! —Dr. Steven G. Eisenberg, Co-founder of California Cancer Associates for Research and Excellence and author of Dancing With The Doctor (2013)

The recipes contain no meat, eggs, fish, or dairy ingredients at all. I started trying recipes one at a time and at first found them too odd ("Tahini Spinach Spelt Berries" anyone?) and they require blender, juicer, food processor, and immersion blender (I had none of these). The ingredients called for easily doubled my grocery bill.
However, these recipes are intended to be more like medicine and they are well thought-out. I like most of the recipes I've tried and they have steered me in the right direction nutritionally. This book got me cooking, something I haven't enjoyed for a long time. I've ordered a similar cancer cookbook that hopefully will provide more variety and options to compliment this book. I recommend purchasing this book
The recipes give hope and flavor to the possibilities of healthy clean eating with imagination. I cannot wait to start creating healthy meals for us through out our journey with cancer.
