Cancer Nutrition Resources to Download
In partnership with Gilda’s Toronto, Chef Amy Symington created these resources for the many individuals and families impacted by cancer each year and those who work to support those living with cancer. Good nutrition is an essential foundation for health, particularly when facing the healthcare challenges that a cancer diagnosis can have. Gilda’s Toronto aims to make evidence-based nutrition information and practical and satisfying recipes accessible to those in need.
The inspiration for these resources was born of the passion of Gilda’s Toronto’s own Chef Amy Symington and the Supper Club Program she ran for Gilda’s Toronto members. Obtaining a grant from the Social Sciences and Health Research Council (Canada) through George Brown College enabled all these resources to come to fruition. Both the Community Guide to Cancer Nutrition and the Companion Cookbook is free to download from the links below.
The Long Table Cookbook is also available for purchase at the bottom of this page. Proceeds go to Gilda’s Toronto when purchased from our website.

A nutritious diet is key to both the prevention and management of chronic illness, but to make us feel wonderful, it must also taste wonderful—and a meal shared with family and friends is even better. Grounded in this perspective, The Long Table Cookbook makes the transition to a health-optimizing plant-based diet simple and satisfying, featuring over seventy-five recipes along with the latest evidence-based nutritional advice, meal planning suggestions and tips for hosting community gatherings.
Chef Amy Symington and The Long Table Cookbook team have put a gourmet spin on healthy ingredients with recipes that are made to share. Readers won’t be able to resist flavourful dishes like Watermelon, Mint, Tofu Feta & Arugula Salad, Caramelized Fennel, Sweet Potato & Pine Nut Cheese Pizza and Strawberry & Hazelnut Streusel Cake with Maple Vanilla Glaze. And while the recipes are satisfying and simple to prepare, they are also crafted to offer a balanced, nutrient-rich menu of whole foods.
