Cookbook author and cancer survivor Kendall Scott will sign her cookbook, "Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen, The Girlfriend's Cookbook and Guide to Using Real Food to Fight Cancer" on Sept. 29. The book signing will take place at the Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road.
The book was co-authored by Annette Ramke, also a cancer survivor, and includes stories from their own experiences with the disease and treatment. The women offer tips they have learned along the way, and recipes designed to give cancer patients strength as they fight for good health. The first section of the book, "The Girlfriends Guide," includes advice about the health pros-and-cons of various foods; tips for eating a whole food, plant-based diet, anecdotes about the mental and physical scars that cancer can leave behind, and advice for family and friends supporting a loved one. The second section features more than 100 plant-based recipes for fighting cancer and promoting optimal health.
Scott was diagnosed with cancer at age 27. She received nutrition support and health coaching herself, and earned board certification in health coaching to help others at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
Scott teaches nutrition and cooking classes and speaks on healthy cooking on webinars, at wellness and cancer support events, and in online articles as a nutrition expert. She and Ramke offer holistic health and cancer support at www.thekickingkitchen.com.
Scott will be signing books from noon to 3 p.m. at the bookstore.
