Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen: The Girlfriend’s Cookbook and Guide to Using Real Food to Fight Cancer ($22.00, 336 pp) is written by cancer survivors Annetta Ramke and Kendall Scott. After battling cancer and becoming certified holistic health coaches, these women wanted to write a book that is a “resource for the woman who has been handed the cancer card—and for the one who never wants to get it”. This book not only gives advice and comfort to those with cancer, but it educates about the healing powers of food with over a hundred recipes.
