The CFK Course For Commonweal
Surviving & thriving during treatment & beyond
A comprehensive course including detailed information and delicious recipes, along with culinary skills and techniques that will support a nourishing experience during treatment and recovery. A companion to my best-selling book The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen (CFK), the course distills down the very best of what I’ve learned and created in my over 15 years working with people with cancer and their caregivers. This is the path I’ve traversed with numerous people coping with the journey of cancer, and now I can walk it with you.
"I'll be right there with you in the kitchen, showing you how to successfully nourish yourself during treatment and beyond. You can do it! And not just survive, but thrive!"
