Quinoa with Roasted Winter Vegetables - Cook For Your Life- Anti Cancer recipes

Recipes for Healthy Survivorship = Heart Healthy Recipes

In the Fall, with cancer awareness months for ovarian cancer in September and breast cancer in October, we talk a lot about women and women’s health, particularly these 2 cancers. But it’s February, and National Heart Month, so it is also worth remembering that more women die from heart disease than they do from cancer. It is still the #1 killer. Thinking about what’s heart healthy is more than worthwhile, it can be a lifesaver. Luckily a cancer protective diet long in fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains, and short on saturated fats, sugary sweets, and red meat, is also a diet that will protect your heart. The recipes in our ‘Healthy Survivorship‘ category can not only help reduce cancer risk, they will help you keep your heart healthy too. There are eggs and seafood in some of these recipes as research now shows that the dietary cholesterol in these once maligned foods does not make its way straight into our arteries as first thought, and you can enjoy them guilt-free for their considerable nutritional benefits.  They say that living well is the best revenge, so try this sampling of our delicious cancer fighting, heart healthy recipes. Survive in style! Enjoy!
