Sample recipe from the second book: The Recipe For Living Without Disease
Banana Cream Pie that is good for you!
If you were to list your top 10 favorite dishes of all time, chances are over half of them would be taboo from the health point of view. The taboo dishes would have some ingredient or procedure that places them out of bounds in any discussion of health.
On a list of current easily available and inexpensive food items (fast food), most likely 10 out of 10 are out of bounds. If you dont see it that way, take a look at Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser.
It is possible to have a Banana Cream Pie that IS healthy!
Shopping for healthy ingredients is the first step. Read labels carefully and ask qualified store representatives, verifying foods are completely raw. This recipe is like all other recipes in the book - it is tasty and good for you. The book tells you how to get these products.
Elsewhere in the book, the technique for whipping raw cream is described; an Osterizer blender and an 8-ounce blender container are needed.

2 tablespoons unsalted raw butter
1 tablespoon unheated honey
