  • Cut in half longitudinally
  • Remove seeds and strings from cavity
  • Place cut-side down on a piece of aluminum foil in a shallow baking pan
  • Add 1/2 cup water to the pan

  • Put half the apple butter into each cavity

In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
