Tofurky™???  What is that?   The perfect vegetarian solution to be or to complement the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner.  Read more about it at the Tofurky™ web site.  I read about this last year, but my local Whole Foods Store sold out before I could buy one.  So this year I bought one early to try ahead of time.   Tofurky™ represents the ultimate in creativity of food product development!   A small tofu *turkey breast*, complete with wild rice stuffing, mushroom gravy, and tempeh drumstix - all in a box.  Once thawed, everything takes less than one hour to prepare. 

The results?  My husband said "This tastes great - I could eat this several times each year!"  My 16 year old son?  - well - it was an interesting experiment!  I loved how it looked, tasted, and the ease of preparation.   It's a little pricey ($21.98 - the way it serves 8), but for a special occasion, it cannot be beat!

I served it with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, and stir-fried vegetables (onion, green, red and yellow peppers, carrots, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, chopped fresh garlic, and grated fresh ginger).  It all made for an easy, hearty, tasty, and beautiful meal.  Enjoy!


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.
