Editorial Reviews

Review

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.
Brian Lawenda, MD, integrative oncologist at 21st Century Oncology, Las Vegas, Nevada

A great resource for information and help in addressing some of the nutritional questions that patients bring.
Moshe Frenkel MD, Chair of  The Israeli Society of Complementary Medicine, Clinical Associate Professor University of Texas, Founder of the Integrative Oncology Clinic in MD Anderson Cancer Center

Zest for Life follows the tenets of an anti-cancer diet and provides practical and tasty ways of increasing our intake of plant-based whole foods.  Zest is a useful book for nutritional education and healthful recipes.
Lorenzo Cohen, PhD, Professor and Director of the Integrative Medicine Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas

If you are going to invest in one book about healthy eating this year, then this should be the book. Zest for Life will be an investment in your entire family's good health and longevity.

From the Back Cover

People affected by cancer are looking for guidance as far as what foods to eat and how to prepare these healthy food options. Unfortunately there are very few resources that support that need. Conner Middelmann-Whitney approaches this topic in a practical way in Zest for Life, a wonderful guide for people looking to enhance their nutrition as another tool to increase their defense against cancer.

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.
