These are so simple yet so essential!
1. Cruciferous vegetables such as Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Kale to name a few.
If green is not your colour, well I suggest you start changing that now. Do whatever it takes cuz these babies have some serious cancer fighting properties such as phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
I’m actually happy about this! I love berries and again they are packed with phytochemicals such as Ellagic Acid, Pterostilbene and Anthocyanins, all of which are antioxidants by the way!
3. Red Wine
Now we’re talking! A special shout out to ma famille… Need I say more? Just a thank you to the red grapes…(in moderate proportions people)
Right so not the best option to ingest before a “steamy session” but the strong phytochemicals and phytonutrients it contains makes it only just the number one food that prevents, fights or delays cancer progression…no biggy!
5. Green Tea
I’m not going to waste my time here, we all know its benefits and if you don’t then hell I don’t know where you’ve been. Its green, tastes like crap but pretty damn good for you.
We Indians are very familiar with this spice, also known as Haldi. Its anti-inflammatory properties protect us against many diseases and slows the growth of a number of cancers.
FYI, NO IT DOES NOT MAKE YOU FAIR!
Pretty insipid in taste except in a mean Bloody Mary, but again with the antioxidant Lycopene you might want to have a few more of these (and I don’t mean Bloody Mary’s).
Preferably in the form of flaxseed oil or powder, either way you ain’t escaping the feeling of its powerful fiber content, literally!
Before we get a bit too excited, dark chocolate is what I mean and the darker the better..! Hey it’s still delicious, great to satisfy a sweet tooth and with the cacao beans you are having one of the most natural sources of antioxidants.
One of my most favorite fruits (yes it’s a fruit) and is really good for you. A healthy fat that pays a pivotal role in preventing and reversing cancer. So go ahead and spice up your guacamoles!
