Amidst all the talk of food that is bad for you, we often overlook the fact that food can be healthy, healing and nourishing, and all around GOOD for you. No one understands this more than Rebecca Katz. As the senior chef-in-residence and nutritional educator at one of the country’s leading cancer wellness centers, she has taken on the challenge of combining good food and science into delicious recipes that are also good for your health.
These recipes from the Cancer-Fighting Kitchen are designed to help patients thrive during treatment, and cure some of their common ailments such as nausea, dehydration and sore throat. But let’s not forget, they’re also delicious, and rich in the vitamins and minerals we all need to stay healthy and happy.
Try the Shredded Carrot and Beet Salad for a colorful (and color is important—the more color, the more nutrients) and refreshing starter. Then make the Carrot, Orange and Fennel Soup to warm you up during this chilly fall. Finish it off with some Cardamom Maple Mini Macaroons, and delight in the fact that what you just ate was healthy and healing!
