Amping Up Your Cancer-Fighting Arsenal
A vegetable-rich diet is your first line of defense when it comes to fighting cancer. But did you know certain veggies offer a more powerful punch? Recent research shows those that are rich in glucosinolates offer more cancer fighting protection.
Try these veggies to get started:
Cabbage (Green, Red, Napa)
Tip #1: Add the to a stir-fry. The easiest way to incorporate more of these vegetables is to add them to a stir-fry. Good choices include Bok choy, cauliflower, and tatsoi (a leafy green).
Tip #2: Sneak it In. Did you know you could puree cauliflower and use it in place of creamy sauces like Bechamel? Try adding it to homemade mac and cheese and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Tip #3: Spice it up. Add a few spicy greens to your otherwise boring salad. We love arugula tossed with pears, almonds and avocado. Yum!
