Posted: Updated:
Here are the recipes from Nancy Waldeck of the Cancer Wellness Center of Piedmont Hospital.

Four Bean Salad

1 Can Chickpeas

1 Can Black Beans

1 Can Cannellini Beans

1 Can Red Beans or Kidney Beans

2 Roasted Red Peppers

2 TB Chopped Green Onion

1 TB Chopped Parsley

½ Cup Chopped Sweet Peppers or Perroncini

¼ Cup Capers

Rinse well and drain the canned beans. Stir all the ingredients together in a large bowl and toss with the avocado dressing below.


Easy Avocado Vinaigrette

1 Haas Avocado, peeled and pitted

3 TB White Balsamic Vinegar

¼  Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

½ Tsp Sea Salt

1 Garlic Clove

Puree all the ingredients together in a food processor or blender.


Tomato Tabouli

1 Cup Red, White, Black or Mixed Quinoa

2 Cups Low Sodium Tomato Juice or V8

½ Cup Chopped Celery

2 Cups Chopped Grape Tomatoes

1 Cup Chopped Parsley

1 – 2 Large Lemons

Place the Quinoa and Tomato Juice in a large pot on the stove. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until the quinoa has “bloomed”, or opened. (Looks like a curlicue attached to the grain.) Toss the celery, tomatoes and parsley with the quinoa, and squeeze the juice from one lemon. Taste the salad to decide whether the additional lemon juice is necessary.


Fresh Peach Salsa

2 Large Peaches, Pitted, Peeled and Chopped

1 Jalapeño, Red or Green

2 TB Sweet Chili Sauce

Stir all the ingredients together in a bowl. Serve with fresh veggies, chips, or add to cooked shrimp. Fresh Peach Salsa can also top a chicken breast or a piece of fish.

Fresh Fruit Salad

6 – 8 Cups of Chopped Fresh Fruit and Berries, like apples, pears, berries and cherries.

1 Large Orange

1 Lime

Place the fruit in a bowl and squeeze the orange and lime juice on top of the fruit. Toss well, chill and serve.

Mint Green Tea

8 Green Tea Bags

8 Cups of Water

3 or 4 Big Sprigs of Mint

Bring the water to a boil in a large pot on the stove. Turn the heat off and add the tea bags. After 3 minutes remove the tea bags, and add the mint.
