Although the award-winning Bastyr University Dining Commons is known throughout the community for its healthy and delicious food, the kitchen staff kicked up the nutrition a notch on September 23, 2011, in honor of "The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen" workshop on campus.

Presented by the patient-support organization Healing Journeys, the workshop sought to help attendees understand the role that nutrition plays in whole-body health, especially for patients fighting cancer and their friends and loved ones.

One of the instructors, Rebecca Katz, provided recipes from her books: The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen: Nourishing, Big-Flavor Recipes for Cancer Treatment and Recovery and One Bite at a Time, Revised: Nourishing Recipes for Cancer Survivors and Their Friends. From the Healing Journeys website:

"Rebecca Katz is re-defining the concept of health-supportive cuisine in a way that’s proving deliciously irresistible to patients and professionals alike. Using equal parts warm kitchen-table wisdom and credible scientific knowledge, Rebecca has helped thousands of people improve their health as they battle chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and obesity. She will provide the practical help with healthy eating that you have asked for."

Workshop attendees and members of the Bastyr community enjoyed the cancer-fighting menu, which included the following recipes:

Katz also shares additional cancer-fighting recipes on her website.

Both of her books are available at the Bastyr Bookstore, including a number of signed copies.
