Betty Crocker Living with Cancer Cookbook
General Mills’ “Pink Together” initiative is a supportive online community that links 500,000 cancer survivors and their supporters, letting them share photos, personal stories, and recipes. Now, in partnership with Pink Together, this new edition of the Living with Cancer Cookbook has been updated and revised to include the inspirational stories of Pink Together community members. Like the first edition, this special edition includes 130 recipes that are specially designed for those undergoing cancer treatments and the loved ones who care for them, as well as:
- Bonus 32-page section on the Pink Together initiative, an online community to support women with breast cancer
- All-new photographs and uplifting quotes, anecdotes, and practical tips from cancer survivors
- Recipes flagged to show which ones can help mitigate the common side effects of cancer treatment
- A simple, 7-day menu plan that is perfect for anyone currently undergoing treatment, based on six small meals and snacks spread throughout the day
- A foreword by Nancy G. Brinker, the founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer support movement
Nutrition is a critical factor in the fight against cancer. The Living with Cancer Pink Together Cookbook combines the nutritious recipes and health information that patients need with inspiring personal stories of survival.
What does cooking have to do with cancer? To answer that broader question, you may want to check out the new blog Eating Despite Cancer, written by Merry Jennifer Markham, MD (aka the merry gourmet), a guest cook for C&B&R and a practicing oncologist who cares for people in all phases of the cancer experience.
More specifically for this cookbook, when we were looking for a reviewer, our #1 choice was easy. Julie, from The Little Kitchen, has been very actively involved in the cause for a cure for breast cancer. Be sure to check out her website to find out about her volunteer activities, and her gorgeous cakes, and her exciting giveaways. (She’s also a pet lover, which is how we first connected.) In addition to being amazingly talented in the kitchen, Julie is genuinely giving — of her heart and her time. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more caring blogger in the cooking field.

With over 150 recipes, the Betty Crocker Living with Cancer Cookbook (Pink Together Edition) is a wonderful resource.
Not only does it have recipes, it has a section with many questions–along with answers–that breast cancer patients and their caregivers will have. I love the section that includes stories from breast cancer survivors, as well as their favorite recipes.
One of our favorite recipes in the book is the chicken soup with homemade noodles.
General Mills’ Pink Together program has contributed over $10 Million to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization. I love that this cookbook also represents this commitment to the breast cancer cause and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year’s edition of the Betty Crocker Living with Cancer Cookbook includes a special message from Komen for the Cure’s founder, Nancy G. Brinker. She shares the story of her sister, Susan G. Komen. She also shares two recipes from her family. I can’t wait to try those recipes, along with tons of others from the cookbook.
