About the Author

Rebecca Katz

Rebecca Katz, M.S.I've spent more than 16 years motivating people to eat well.My primary tool is flavor, as I show people how great taste and great nutrition can joyfully coexist at the dinner table.I have faith in the allure of the kitchen and promise that if you're inspired by the results, you'll find yourself wanting to cook more and more. Creating meals that enhance your health and well-being while caressing your taste buds is irresistible. A myriad of food related experiences, including a sojourn to Italy, where I studied Mediterranean cuisine with chefs and signoras from Florence to Sicily, shaped my philosophy that health-supportive food must taste great in order to be nourishing and healing.Now, I get to play nutrition detective (I have a Masters of Science in Nutrition) and healthy cook (I received my chef's training at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts) to my heart's delight through my books; One Bite at a Time (2004,2008) the award winning Cancer-Fighting Kitchen (2009, 2017) , The Longevity Kitchen (2013) , The Healthy Mind Cookbook (2015) , and Clean Soups (2016) . Recently, I've co-created online culinary/nutrition courses that translate nutritional science to the plate, and have founded the non-profit Healing Kitchens Institute. HKI is dedicated to educating communities and healthcare professionals about the power of food as medicine and nourishment. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband and two canine companions, Lola and Blossom.
