"The following recipe for Chicken Salad Roll-ups gives you an example of how I include chicken in my diet. (I modified this recipe from one similar in the Sept 2002 issue of Prevention Magazine)

  • 1 cup finely chopped or shredded cooked skinless chicken breast
    (about 1 medium sized piece) - chilled
  • 1 cup drained and rinsed black beans
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes (cut in half or quarters if they are huge)
  • 1/2 cup hummus (any flavor will do)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon curry powder (depends on how much curry you like)
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted red chili paste (I use a brand by Thai Kitchen found in the Thai foods section of my regular grocery store)
  • whole wheat bread (I use whole wheat pita bread by Pita Gourmet™)


  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Spread on bread for sandwiches.

I served it with a large green salad, fresh fruit, and steamed green beans, fresh from the garden.

Ingredients could easily be added or increased to make enough to serve more people. My husband commented on how good this was at least 3 times during dinner. That is a sign of a recipe to keep and repeat again some day soon!

Servings: Makes about 2 large dinner sandwiches and enough leftover for one lunch.


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.
