  • 1 serving oatmeal (preferrably steel-cut, see note below), cooked

  • Core apple and puree in blender. Add and blend in yogurt, soy protein powder, and flaxseed oil.
  • Stir in lemon and/or orange zest.
  • Top with any or all of the remianing ingredients.

According to Janet, this tastes almost like a fruity dessert!

Steel-cut oats or Scotch oats or Irish oatmeal are all names for groats that have been cut into 2 to 3 pices and not rolled. They take considerably longer to cook than rolled oats (follow directions on the box) and have a decidely chewy texture.


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.
