Anti-Cancer Recipes for Cellular Health

Are you concerned about cancer? Then get serious about your diet. In fact, research shows that 80% of all cancers can be prevented through diet and lifestyle.

But what kind of recipes are anti-cancer recipes?

A cancer-fighting diet is one that is rich in antioxidants from colorful fruits and veggies, low in sugar (aka “cancer fertilizer”), packed with B vitamins that promote healthy cell division, rich in anti-inflammatory cancer-fighting fats and low in those that promote inflammation, free of hormones, pesticides and toxins. It also provides an assortment of powerful cancer-fighting foods that are optimally prepared to preserve their nutrients and prevent cancer-promoting compounds.

Here are the specific criteria for “Anti-Cancer Recipes” at Healing Gourmet:

Anti-Cancer Diet Rule #1: Low in Sugar

  • Contains less than 10 grams sugar per serving

Anti-Cancer Recipes Rule #2: Cell-Protecting Antioxidants

Provides an excellent source of any of these key antioxidants:

  • Vitamin A or Beta-carotene
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Selenium

Anti-Cancer Diet Rule #3: Mighty Methylators

Provides an excellent source of any of these nutrients:

  • Folate
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin B6

Anti-Cancer Recipes Rule #4: Inflammation-Fighting Fats

Provides a rich source of any of these anti-inflammatory fats:

  • EPA/DHA omega-3
  • ALA omega-3
  • MUFA (5 grams/serving)

Anti-Cancer Diet Rule #5: Free of Hormones, Pesticides and Toxins

All recipes at Healing Gourmet are free from the endocrine-disrupting and cancer-promoting toxins found in our conventional food supply. This means NO BPA, PCBs, dioxins, rBST, PFCs, pesticides, antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, harmful additives or preservatives.

Anti-Cancer Recipes Rule #6: Optimally Prepared

Foods cooked at high temperatures create cancer-promoting byproducts including HCAs, LOPs, AGEs and acrylamide. Cooking foods at their appropriate temperature range, marinating and using healthy cooking techniques reduces or eliminates these nasty compounds.

Anti-Cancer Diet Rule #7: Cancer-Fighting Foods

Contains any of these key phytonutrient and fiber-rich, cancer-fighting fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices:

  • ALLIUMS: garlic, onions, shallots, chives, leeks
  • BERRIES: blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, raspberries
  • CITRUS: lemons, oranges, limes, grapefruit, tangerines
  • CRUCIFEROUS VEGGIES: bok choy, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, watercress, arugula, horseradish
  • HERBS: basil, oregano, rosemary
  • MUSHROOMS: white button mushrooms, shitake mushrooms, crimini mushrooms, portabella mushrooms, oyster mushrooms
  • SEA VEGETABLES: spirulina, chlorella, hijiki, nori
  • TEA: green tea, white tea, black tea

Regular vigorous exercise, optimal vitamin D levels (ideally obtained from sun exposure), restful sleep and maintaining a healthy weight are also critical to guard against cancer.
