Breast Cancer Awareness – Reduce Your RiskTip #3 – Eat Your Protection



3. Consume as many fruits and vegetables as possible. Eat seven or more servings daily. The superstars for breast cancer protection include all cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower) ; dark leafy greens (collards, kale, spinach) ; carrots and tomatoes. The superstar fruits include citrus, berries and cherries. Note: it is best to eat cruciferous vegetables raw or lightly cooked, as some of the phytochemicals believed to offer protection against breast cancer are destroyed by heat.
I find getting lots of fruit into “The Beasties” is easy, same for spinach (try this no-prep Trader Joes Cookbook recipe for spinach lasagna), broccoli, carrots and toms, but some of the others are a struggle.
I LOVE cabbage and brussel sprouts, so was delighted to see them on the list, but my family acts like I’m suggesting ingesting raw sewage, do you have a great (especially if it’s kid approved) recipe you’d like to share?
