Updated April 28, 2014

If you are looking to prevent cancer through your diet, or are in treatment and want some healthy anti-cancer meals, you have come to the right place! There are quite a few cookbooks available, but these are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! Each feature simple recipes, with easy to find ingredients! Even better, the recipes are simple to prepare and are so good!

1. Betty Crocker's Living With Cancer Cookbook

Hands down, this is my favorite cookbook! The recipes are simple and there is such a variety! There are also tips about how certain foods can lessen side effects of treatment. Great for patients and their families!

2. The American Cancer Society's Healthy Eating Cookbook

The great part about the recipes are the alternatives they provide for healthier cooking! The substitution ingredients are things you would never think of adding! They don't sacrifice flavor, either! One of the best!

This book really provides a variety of ways to eat cancer fighting foods! I love how it addresses how to fight all types of cancer, rather than just a specific type.

5. The What to Eat If You Have Cancer Cookbook

The What to Eat If You Have Cancer Cookbook, is really helpful if you are a caregiver. The recipes are great and are really aimed for the patient during treatment. The books battles side effects of treatment, like malnutrition, weight loss and more. I did find some of the ingredients hard to find, but the book provided resources on mail order companies that could ship the ingredients direct for a low cost!
