The Cancer-Fighting Crucifers

One of my friends in the blogging world - Shaina of Take a Bite Out of Boca -  is hosting a recipe round-up in honor of her cousin Leah who is battling brain cancer and taking part in the Angels Among Us cancer event. Shaina's cousin beat cancer the first time around, but they have discovered that it has returned. So Shaina is running a Beat Cancer event on her blog. Everything will all be linked up there on Friday, April 25th. Check it out at Take a Bite Out of Boca!

If you have been following my blog for any amount of time,  you know that I love my veggies. And I decided to pull out a few recipes for her event.

While we know that no single food or food component protects you against cancer by itself, there is strong evidence showing that a diet filled with a variety of plant foods - vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans -  helps lower risk for many cancers.

Here are a few of our favorites. Love these cancer-fighting crucifers!!

Cabbage

Radishes

Turnips

Kale

I can't wait to see the other recipes that get posted for this event. Thanks, Shaina, for hosting and giving us all a chance to swap some healthier-for-us recipes.
