I add greens like kale to most everything. Here is one recipe that lets kale (or any other healthy green leafy veggie) stand and shine alone!

  • 1 bunch kale (maybe about 1#)
  • 2 Tbsp.olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic (mince 10 minutes prior to heating to maximize the activity of the cancer fighting molecules)
  • splash of balsamic vinegar
  • black sesame seeds


  • To prepare the kale, remove the leaves from the stems and chop coarsely.
  • Wash and shake the leaves but leave them slightly damp.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan, saute the garlic (do not let it brown),
  • add about 1 cup of kale leaves, then keep adding and stirring all the kale leaves until all the leaves are slightly wilted.

Cover and cook on low heat until leaves are tender, (5-10 minutes depending on age of leaves). Stir a few times, make sure the pan does not go dry (add a Tbsp. of water at a time if needed). Can be served warm or at room temperature.

Makes 4 generous servings. Sprinkle with a dash of vinegar and sesame seeds before serving. This is so good that I always eat any left over while I am cleaning up the kitchen.


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.
