People often wonder whether they are eating enough fruits and vegetables and what benefits they provide. What we know is that fruits and vegetables can offer benefits that many people may not have thought of: to both help prevent and fight cancer. We also know that we need to gain a better understanding of nutrition and cancer.
The fact is, eating the right kinds of food has a big impact on your health and can even help prevent and deter cancer growth. Increasing your intake of vitamin- and fiber-rich fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes, which all have important nutrients and anti-oxidants which are cancer-fighting substances, can make a difference. It's a good idea to eat vegetarian at least once a week.
Improving your diet is easy – and a great way to start the year off right. One of my favorite health tips is to put as much color on your plate as possible. We love 3 Sisters Cafe because they offer so many dishes with healthier ingredients and lots of color!
