This is Tuna-melt the healthy way. I recently read an article on comfort foods that gave me a heart attack reading the ingredients. Here's a recipe make-over so you can eat a delicious tuna-melt sandwich with comfort :-)

  • 1 small can water pack tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup soft tofu
  • 1/4 large onion - diced small
  • 2 Tbsp. black olive relish or tapenade
  • 2-3 Tbsp. hummus

Mix all the ingredients together. Serve as follows:

  • 4 bagel halves (whole grain), 1 avocado - cut into slices, 1 large fresh tomato sliced, broccoli sprouts, 4 slices of low-fat cheese or soycheese flavor of your choice
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Place avocado slices on the bagels, followed by a generous scoop of the tuna salad, tomato slices, broccoli sprouts, and then a slice of cheese.
  • Pop under broiler until the cheese is bubbly and browned.

Enjoy without any guilt as you eat all those healthy fats!!!



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.
