One Bite at a Time 
Nourishing Recipes for People With Cancer, Survivors, and Their Caregivers
by Rebecca Katz with Marsha Tomassi and Mat Edelson 
 
A full-color cookbook for cancer patients and their loved ones with 150 recipes, nutritional information, and anecdotes from cancer survivors. 

Studies show that up to 80 percent of cancer patients are malnourished. 

One Bite at a Time features more than 85 simple-to-prepare, sumptuous recipes. From little nibbles to satisfying entrees, Rebecca Katz's flexible approach is designed for both the individual and the entire family to enjoy. Dishes such as Poached Coconut-Ginger Salmon, Spinach Orzo with Pine Nuts and Feta, Taxicab Yellow Tomato soup and Magic Mineral Broth reinvigorate the appetite with ingredients that help bolster the body's immune system. 

To accompany the recipes, Rebecca offers down-to-earth information and helpful advice for those dealing with the culinary ups and downs often experienced during treatment. Learn what friends and family can do to best pitch in; discover easy substitutes for "forbidden" foods; look up "nutrition-at-a-glance" information for each recipe; and see how to wake up taste buds in any dish by using just a few basic staples from the pantry. 

Rebecca's caring, humor-filled recipe notes will warm your heart and remind you that, along with a good meal, laughter can truly be the best medicine. Throughout the book's pages, Rebecca's clients attest to this fact, as they share anecdotes of the joyous impact these recipes have had on their lives. 

At a time when you may feel that nothing is under your control, something as simple as creating a nutritious, healing dish for yourself or a loved one can be a reaffimation of your humanity and a tangible way to nurture someone you care about.
