Publishers Description
A cookbook for cancer patients with more than 85 recipes, featuring full nutritional analysis and anecdotes from cancer survivors.

Chef Rebecca Katz shares delicious, nourishing recipes for cancer patients, who often experience culinary ups and downs because of sudden dietary restrictions and poor appetite due to damaged taste buds from harsh treatments. Revised and updated with 10 new recipes, this second edition provides caretakers with a tangible way to nurture loved ones through easy-to-digest meals that offer maximum flavor while boosting the immune system.


Reviews“Rebecca Katz is a culinary genius who is also profoundly devoted to providing great, healthy food for people with cancer. Her meals receive the highest praise.”—Michael Lerner, cofounder of the Commonweal Cancer Help Program and author of Choices in Healing“A gem.”—Mary Beth Regan, Baltimore Sun “This book is an instant turn-on to good, nourishing food.”— Share Guide“Fare that puts delicious back into health food.” —Sweat magazine

REBECCA KATZ is the founder of the Inner Cook and senior chef at Commonweal Cancer Help Program in Marin County, California.


If you had to boil your book’s message down to one sentence, what would it be? Good nutrition and great taste don’t have to sit at opposite ends of the table! What are you working on now? I’m working on a second book for people undergoing cancer treatment that will cross reference specific symptoms and cancer types with foods that will bolster the effectiveness and outcome of their treatment. Do you eat your vegetables? I love my veggies. Especially the stud vegetable, broccoli! I even love my dark leafy greens, sautéed in a bath of olive oil and garlic. Tell me something that other people might not know about you. I’m a certified food fondler. Have any good pet stories? Bella is my 4 ½ year old Portuguese Water Dog. She is the ultimate kitchen dog with an amazing nose. Currently, she has a job—every Monday, I bring her to a clinic in San Anselmo where she is a part of the second Canine Cancer Scent Study in the country. A dog’s olfactory senses are 800% more sensitive than humans. A dog can smell cancerous molecules through the breath, even before a scan can diagnose the presence of cancer in the body. Dogs are redefining the “Pet Scan.” She works for treats. Her nose is so sensitive, that if I am making one of my regular dishes, and I forget to add the carrots, she will take her paw and scratch my leg to remind me.

One Bite at a Time is wonderful  Dec 12, 2008
One Bite at a Time is the best cookbook yet I've seen that uses the current medically substantiated emphasis on vegetables to help the person fighting or preventing cancer to heal.Recipes contain no sugar or white flour and are full of fresh herbs and nutritional spices with gorgeous attractive color photos of the healthy foods easy to prepare and digest.
Referred by Doctor   Sep 16, 2008
This book was referred to my friend who has cancer by a doctor., so I purchased it for her. I've decided to buy more to give to my family members for Christmas., as it has menus that can prevent cancer. It is a great book with really good recipies, I found it to be great for cancer patients who, like my friend are very limited on what foods they can eat. It's healthy eating, health food and good receipes !
One Bite at a Time  Sep 15, 2008
This book was recommended to me by my friend - a gormet cook. Unfortunately, I am not. The recipes were nothing I was interested in learning how to cook and nothing my husband was interested in eating. It was too much to think about on top of everything else. If you have a lot of time to be in the kitchen or have been a gormet cook up to this point, I'm sure the recipes are wonderful. I just couldn't deal with it.
One of the most important cookbooks I've ever used  Sep 15, 2008
One Bite at a Time is a cookbook by Rebecca Katz designed for cancer survivors and cancer patients. Its goal is simple yet all too difficult: to create food that fits within the dietary constraints of cancer survivors, nourishes them, and yet tastes so delicious to their altered taste buds and rebellious systems that they'll want to eat it. This food is also designed to be easy for them and their caregivers to make at home.

Ms. Katz set out on this course because she had family and friends who were diagnosed with cancer, and whom she wanted to help care for. She noted that many patients didn't know how to convert the limited lists of foods they were given into something they'd like, so she put her knowledge as a chef to work creating food they would actually enjoy.

She does more than that, however. She includes simple instructions for using a few basic ingredients to help you balance the flavors of any dish to your liking, so that however your taste buds have been affected, you'll be able to (with a little practice) make food that tastes good to you. She has incredible understanding of and empathy for the particular food and taste problems cancer survivors suffer, and that shines through in this book.

Here's the rub: the recipes in this book are so delicious and flavorful, and so healthy, that I'd recommend EVERYONE go out and buy a copy. That way, not only can you enjoy the benefits of these recipes and the information on flavors, but the next time you find out that a relative, friend, or neighbor has cancer (sadly, an all-too-common occurrence these days), instead of feeling helpless, you'll know exactly what you can do to help a little.

We made a fruit tart from this cookbook that was absolutely awesome. It focused on the fruit, and the crust incorporated ground cashews to give it a rich, satisfying taste that required absolutely no butter! (And if you don't have a tart pan on hand, a pie plate will work just fine.) There are recipes in here that make use of grains such as quinoa to beautiful effect---one of my favorite dishes incorporated both quinoa and couscous with vegetables, herbs, and seasonings. I could have eaten it for days without growing tired of it.

Perhaps best of all, an entire section gives caregivers and friends tips for helping out: reaching out to your friend or family member with cancer; understanding the cancer patient's difficulties with taste, digestion, and energy; building up a "culinary support team". This information is utterly invaluable and vastly insightful.

One Bite at a Time is one of those rare books I wish I could push into the hands of everyone I know and meet. It's the kind of book that's useful to everyone and that you'll want to already have on hand should the need ever arise. So grab a copy---you won't be sorry you did.
A beautiful book  Jul 24, 2008
This is an outstanding recipe book and it is beautiful to look at. It is good for anyone who wants to eat healthy and delicious food. I have made about 10 recipes already and they are great. Besides the recipes, the author teaches. I have already given it to others!
