Here Are My Cancer Fighting Recipes.
These recipes are the ones I’m using to fight my cancer. A new catch phrase going around is “Food is Medicine” and I’m hoping that’s true. Take a look at my post about “In Vitro and In Vivo Testing and What it Means to Your Cancer Fight“. Pay special attention to the video in the post and you’ll see why I have such high hopes. So, here is what I’m using. As we speak I have a jug of broccoli juice sitting in my fridge with my name on it. 🙂 Also, here is a list of Cancer Fighting Foods so that you can create your own recipes.
Broccoli Juice Version 2 with Oranges – You probably know that juicing is one of the easiest ways to get the nutrients of vegetables and fruit into your body without eating tons of them in each sitting. My plan is to supplement my diet with juices so that I can get the number of servings of fruit and veggies that I consume up to around 10 a day. So, in that vein, I have posted my new and improved recipe for broccoli juice version 2 with oranges. Read More
Broccoli Juice – It sounds so gross doesn’t it? Broccoli juice. Just typing the words makes me think of beaded hipsters comparing notes on gluten. Seriously, don’t be afraid of broccoli juice!
