A beautiful, unique cookbook with delicious recipes for all stages of cancer treatment and recovery, from a two-time cancer survivor and founder of the Cook for Your Life nutrition-based cooking programs. Two-time cancer survivor Ann Ogden Gaffney discovered during her months of treatment for breast cancer that she was able to find powerful relief for her symptoms through cooking. Realizing that other patients and families could benefit from the skills and techniques she'd learned, she began to offer advice, recipes, and free classes to patients. A former fashion consultant, Gaffney realized after her treatment that her heart was no longer in seasonal colors and hemline trends. Instead, she wanted to help people with cancer and their families cook and care for themselves. In 2007,the non-profit organization Cook for Your Life was born. Its programs have received funding from NIH and have been embraced by organizations such as Columbia University's School of Public Health, Mount Sinai, Atlantic Health, the American Cancer Society, and more, and has touched hundreds of thousands of lives. Now Gaffney delivers her highly anticipated cookbook, based on her classes. So many cancer cookbooks are too complicated to follow, or too clinical and uninspired. This is the first cookbook to organize the recipes into categories according to the way patients feel for example, Simple recipes when the patient is fatigued, Safe recipes when a patient's immune system is compromised, and Spicy recipes when a patient is feeling better and needs to wake up her taste buds. With its warmth, authority, beautiful design, and smartly conceived format, Cook for Your Life empowers patients and families to cook their way back to health. (Publishers)
