Overview

Who knew foods with cancer-fighting potential could taste this good? Tasty Reuben sandwiches, crispy French fries and creamy chocolate pudding — recipes for these and 79 other delectable dishes are available in this new cookbook that makes practical use of the most recent research on the role of nutrition in fighting cancer. And if that isn't enough, all profits from sales of the book will go to researchers searching for cures and controls for prostate cancer.

The Taste for Living Cookbook: Mike Milken's Favorite Recipes for Fighting Cancer combines nutritional guidelines with great tasting, thoroughly tested easy-to-prepare recipes. Milken says the recipes grew out of his search for cancer-fighting meals that didn't taste like they were created in a laboratory. His search led to the chef Beth Ginsberg, who blends her seasoned culinary expertise with research on the cancer-fighting potential of soy, green tea and certain vegetables.

Using sidebars, photographs and illustrations, the book shows how to read labels and how to get the most cancer-fighting potential from any diet. The book also contains an essay by Donald Coffey, Ph.D., past-president of the American Association for Cancer Research, on how nutrition may play a part in the onset and progression of cancer.

Loved the Caesar's salad (& recommend it, even if you have to check this book out from the library), as well as the Miso soup. But I've not tried anything further. My next adventure with her recipes: the chile rellenos. If nothing else, I've learned how to use tofu & miso in more diverse ways. I'm thinking that based on the dressing for the Caesar's salad, I probably could even make ranch dressing w/the silken tofu & miso. ...obviously the book inspires your own creativity.

I made the 'Vegetable Reuben Sandwiches' with his 'Thousand Island Dressing' and it was so good, my husband wanted them again the same week. The 'Thousand Island Dressing' is wonderful and can be used on salads, etc. I also made a receipe from Taste of World CookBook, 'Buddah's Feast' ,and that is also excellent. I think both of his books are 'Winners'. My husband and I both have heart disease and have had to change our whole way of eating and cooking. These books have lessened the burden and we now can enjoy some of the foods that we miss eating. Thanks Michael and Beth!
