Good Eats at Sally's: Recipes for Health,
a cookbook for people who want to change their diet to a healthier one but aren't sure where to begin.
Author Sally Miller is a former cancer patient who used natural healing methods,
primarily a change in diet, to fend off a return of her ovarian cancer after major surgery. She
has been cancer-free for four years.
The 88-page 8.5" x 11"
cookbook is spiral-bound for easy use in the kitchen.
It includes 65 recipes for varied
vegetarian fare meant to tempt you into beginning the process of improving your
Sally combines her knowledge of simple
Midwest cooking with creative imagination to produce delicious vegetarian recipes (most of which are also vegan) to help reduce fat,
meat, and dairy products in your diet. Consumption of these foods has been
linked to cancer, heart problems, strokes, diabetes, and other major diseases.
Also included are conversions of
traditional recipes (such as "Green Bean Casserole") to healthier
versions, helpful charts on nutrition, plus menu, pantry, and equipment
suggestions. Sally's valuable commentary on nutrition and her personal insights
round out the book.
Drawings by Diane Beeny complement many
of the recipes.
Even people who don't usually cook will
be able to follow the clear instructions.
Local residents may pick up their books
at Boxelder Basin Wellness Retreat in Ringoes, NJ.
Comments from readers
Coy (entrepreneur) Unique book to read plus recipes to cook!
Sue (retired administrator) Clear, good information,
interesting recipes, new ideas and combinations.
Eion (gourmet) Recipes of style with simplicity yet a depth of Sally's knowledge and
information that she shares willingly with her audience.
Joan (cancer survivor) In good taste, wonderful drawings, good variety of food.
Louise Greenfield (author of Overcoming Cancer with Diet)
You did a wonderful job with the cookbook! Lots of great ideas and just what the world needs. Your energy and enthusiasm sparkle through.
Sandy (art teacher) The cookbook Good Eats At Sally's
is just great - friendly, sympathetic, helpful, and enthusiastic. I love how you open with
"Apple Orange Breakfast
Bowl." It is simple and delicious and sets the user-friendly tone immediately. Your old
home-ec Sally shines through in many places and makes many of the recipes and ideas for preparation, freezing, and multi-uses extremely valid, easy to follow, etc. All the information you
impart concerning "good" foods, their impact upon the body
– recovering or not – versus
"toxic" foods is inspiring to anyone.
Don (musician) "Quesadillas" are my favorite. They're not heavy like most Mexican food, but light and really nice. Food like this makes me feel light, yet it gives me a long-lasting energy.
