Healthier Eating and Living with Cancer by Karen Jung is an extensively researched and valuable patient-tested cookbook on preparing healthy and palatable meals for patients undergoing cancer treatments or people living with cancer. This book is also an excellent resource for individuals, family members, caregivers and friends who wish to prepare healthier meals.
Many recipes contain healthy and low-fat ingredients that will contribute to avoiding if not reducing the risk of coronary heart disease.
“I was initially inspired to write this book with the earlier encouragement of my husband who was diagnosed with cancer. I also wanted to share my culinary experience and ideas with other people living with cancer or life-threatening illnesses, and to help them prepare healthier meals. My husband overcame food challenges and avoided nausea and weight loss during cancer treatments and post-treatment recovery. Many of these recipes contributed to maintaining and/or increasing his weight during and after cancer treatments. During his recuperation, we entertained guests with these healthy and appetizing meals with the goal of persuading others to change their lifestyle and eating habits, too.
My passion for cooking came from my mother, and my father and grandfather who were both restaurant cooks. My professional background includes 24 years of experience in the health care industry. I served for 12 years as Director of Human Resources in several large hospitals and a residential care facility in British Columbia, where I have worked with all levels of staff including physicians and external caregivers.
