“Most of us have heard the expression “you are what you eat.” Pam Braun has taken this to a new level with her cookbook, “The Ultimate Anti-Cancer Cookbook.” Incorporating sound science, a chef’s sensibility, an editor’s precision and common sense, this is a book you will use over and over again — all the while feeling good from enjoying her delicious recipes while knowing you’re doing something virtuous for your body. Plus, you’ll learn a great deal about nutrition along the way. Enjoy it — I have.”
“The evidence to support a diet rich in vegetables and fruits, low in fats and animal proteins is steadily evolving. Pam’s careful discussion of the benefits of certain foods and the potential harm of others is thoughtful and balanced. In addition, she has investigated food preparation data as it relates to cancer and included this often overlooked topic in her cookbook. As a cancer doctor for women, I found this cookbook to be a wealth of delicious and healthy recipes that I will be recommending!”
“It is not often that one can remark on such a well-written book as this. While it is true that you are what you eat, that is never more so than in this case. Patients with ovarian cancer need more than one medical miracle and certainly this just adds to the recipe of miracles. It is a pleasure to read this book. It is even more so to actually cook the food as written in this book. Very few of us can say that our life has been enhanced by something such as this, but I can honestly say this is true in this case. As an associate professor in gynecological oncology, it is unusual to encounter someone with both the intellect and the artistic endeavor, as demonstrated in this book of recipes. I highly recommend both from the hunger point of view and the artistic point of view as well.”
“Pam Braun’s cookbook is a great resource from one survivor to another. These straight forward healthy recipes will help either a newly diagnosed patient or a longer term survivor take control of their diet and make healthy choices at a critical time.”
Read it. Eat it. You’ll love it!
I witnessed the early, middle, and late stages of Pam’s life-threatening battle with fallopian tube cancer. To my grateful astonishment, my friend survived with an energy, vitality, and enthusiasm unique to our 12 year social and professional relationship. With all respect to modern medicine, Pam credits extensive dietary research leading to these new and innovative ideas for food preparation. Perhaps Pam has inadvertently given birth to a whimsical new adage, “If it’s broke, fix it.”
