Rebecca Katz, author of The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen, believes that “a grounding activity such as cooking and eating well can provide more than nourishment; it can offer a huge psychological boost.”
Her philosophy is consistent with that of Dr. Sinatra. He believes that you should eat fresh organically grown food as much as possible, and to create meals that are fun-to-make, and nourishing to eye, palate, and body.
Katz employs the “power of yum” to meal planning tips for chemotherapy, and all her recipes. As a nurse, a mom, and a family member, I know all too well the importance of information and strategies that empowers an individual—as well as their family and friends—during a health challenge.
