Advance Praise for The Living Kitchen by Tamara Green and Sarah Grossman

The Living Kitchen is just what cancer patients and their caregivers need. If you or a loved one has just been diagnosed with cancer and you want to know what you should eat, look no further. This step-by-step guide will put your fears at ease and provide you with truly delicious, healing foods to eat during every phase of your journey.”
—Kelly Turner, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

The Living Kitchen is a well-researched book and a most welcome alternative for cancer patients and caregivers. It’s a useful resource for anyone with cancer or for anyone who will be helping to provide meals for someone with cancer.”
—Dr. Ellen Warner, MD, medical oncologist, Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Research Institute and professor of medicine, University of Toronto

The Living Kitchen is a beautiful and important book. With recipes backed in real science that don’t disregard elegance and flavor in favor of their therapeutic properties, this is must-have for anyone on a cancer journey. It’s mouthwatering but more so, it’s filled with empathy and a real understanding of the various types of hardship cancer brings on. Armed with this book, you’ll feel comforted, satiated, and (perhaps) even filled with pleasure during one of life’s most difficult times.”
—Liz Moody, Food Director of mindbodygreen and author of Healthier Together

The Living Kitchen brought me to tears, not because of the tenderness and brilliance that fill each page, and not because of the deliciousness of the recipes—but because I immediately saw how much easier it would have made my mother’s life (and my own, as one of her primary caregivers) during her battle with cancer. Here is a book that gives those healing, and their families, that most sought-after of gifts during an illness: immediate, tangible, and practical support.”
—Lily Diamond, author of Kale & Caramel

“There is no question that after undergoing a major cancer surgery and reconstruction, patients who are systematically well nourished heal faster and suffer fewer wound complications than those deficient. In today’s era of empowering patients to make cancer-related treatment decisions for themselves, The Living Kitchen serves as an important guide. The topics of ‘what can I eat after a cancer diagnosis?’ and ‘what foods may help me during wound healing after surgery?’ commonly arise with my patients. Having read this informative book, I feel far better educated and equipped to engage my patients in these types of important dialogues about food as medicine for our bodies.”
—Dr. Toni Zhong, MD, Belinda Stronach Chair of UHN Breast Reconstruction Surgery and director of the UHN Breast Reconstruction Program

The Living Kitchen is brilliant, beautiful, and so incredibly needed. With so many questions that come with a cancer diagnosis, one mighty area that can empower those suffering and their caregivers is to know that the foods we prepare and enjoy are part of the solution—part of healing and recovery, as well as prevention. From how to eat to prepare for treatment to what to eat after, with meal plans and accompanying recipes, this book isn’t just for patients; it will nourish the whole family. This book is an essential resource for every kitchen, whether your home has been touched by cancer or not. I truly can’t recommend it more highly.”
—Meghan Telpner, bestselling author of The UnDiet Cookbook and founder of The Academy of Culinary Nutrition

“Finally, a book to answer the question, ‘What should I eat now that I have cancer?’ The information in The Living Kitchen is presented in such a clear, positive, and visually beautiful way that it will be easily digestible no matter where you are in your cancer journey. This way of eating—mindfully, organically, and supporting the body’s own healing mechanisms—is how we should all be eating throughout our lives. Food is indeed the best medicine.”
—Dr. Jennifer Lang, MD, OB/GYN and gynecologist oncologist

The Living Kitchen is a beautiful reminder that no one should face this diagnosis alone. Tamara and Sarah’s compassion, empathy, and knowledge shines through every page of this book.”—Jessica Murnane, author of One Part Plant and host of One Part Podcast

The Living Kitchen brings together the how and why of eating for self-care and recovery. Sarah Grossman and Tamara Green take us from science to practical, and then to delicious, on a journey that teaches us the importance of food for physical and mental health.”
—Laura LaChance MD, psychiatrist and nutritional psychiatry researcher at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH)

The Living Kitchen is a beautiful testament to the power of real food during and following a cancer diagnosis. Prioritizing healthy eating during cancer can be exhausting and difficult, but Sarah and Tamara have taken this stress away by curating an exquisite guide of informative yet easily digestible material and accompanying recipes that are simple and deeply nourishing for the body and soul. This book is an authentic, mindful collection of wholesome food and wholesome information that simply strives to empower those that wish to improve their nutrition during cancer. Having personally been through cancer, and seeing patients daily in an adjunctive cancer care setting, I know this book will be a welcome and crucial ally in anyone’s cancer journey.”
—Dr. Martha Sharpe, ND, naturopathic doctor with a clinical focus on adjunctive cancer care at Marsden Centre for Excellence in Integrative Medicine, and cancer survivor

“The mouthwatering pictures of recipes in The Living Kitchen will inspire any reader, with or without a diagnosis of cancer, to pursue healthier eating. I will have copies of this book available in our clinic so that all of our patients, whether chronically ill, obese, or fit, have access to these simple, luscious, and health-promoting recipes.”
—Rachel Farrell, CEO, Harmony Health Medical Clinic and Family Resource Center
