Numerous studies have showed that a healthy diet and maintaining your weight have great benefit to reducing your risk of cancer. The best anti-cancer diet is whole-foods plantbased because plants have less fat, more fiber and more cancerfighting nutrients.
This becomes easy to do when you take it one step at a time. The MyPlate method is a great visualization. Start by filling your plate with at least two-thirds whole grains, vegetables, beans or fruit and fill the other one-third of your plate with dairy products, fish or meat. Take a look at each of your meals and add one item to make it healthier. Next make an improvement to each of your meals – such as adding a fruit to your existing breakfast, for lunch adding legumes to your salad or having a cup of chili, eating an afternoon snack on sugar snap peas and hummus, and for dinner filling half your plate with roasted cruciferous vegetables. While all vegetables have valuable nutrition and fiber, the cruciferous vegetables are the most important in reducing the risk of cancer. Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard greens, kale and cauliflower.
