There’s a lot of cancer in my family. My mom survived ovarian only to succumb to pancreatic years later. My grandfather had lung and brain cancer. My uncle had tongue cancer and my grandmother had anal cancer. As a result of my personal experiences with the disease, we’ve developed a number of cancer-fighting recipes that we prepare for our clients and this Curry Roasted Vegetable Quinoa Bowl is one of our favorites!
Why We Like This Recipe:
Cancer patients need nutrient-dense, easy-to-digest meals. This recipe combines several cancer-fighting ingredients:
— Cauliflower and Brussel sprouts are cruciferous veggies which are known to contain powerful phytochemicals which can help slow the growth of some cancers.
— Quinoa is an ancient grain that’s easy to cook and contains 8 grams of protein in a one-cup serving.
— Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals and they are great for good gut health — important because your immune system is based in your gut.
— Curry and turmeric are anti-inflammatory spices. Chronic inflammation is believed to cause cancer.
— Sea salt provides another layer of minerals. We like pink Himalayan, but there are many varieties.
— Coconut oil and avocados provide the healthy fat vital to good nutrition.
