Eating right when you have Cancer – 5 Cancer kitchen Recipes

‘You are what you eat’, was never more true than in the connection between food and cancer. Cancer has been identified as a “life-style’ disease. It has been agreed that cancers are linked to where you live, to what you eat and drink, and breathe and smoke.

Eating healthy food is important when you are well. And, it is even more important when you are receiving treatment for cancer. There are no special foods you must eat or must avoid, but certain cancer fighting foods/recipes will possibly help you to overcome problems connected with side effects of treatment. Thus, it is vital that you eat well to feel well and have more energy; get the best benefit from your treatment, with fewer side effects and improve your body’s potential to heal.

Adding these kitchen recipes helps to keep a healthy diet and feel great while fighting off illness and disease:

  • Creamy Carrot Soup – Carrots are one of the unsung heroes of the kitchen. The orange hue of carrot gives cancer-fighting powers that comes from carotenoids compounds and act like antioxidants, cleaning up cancer-causing free radicals that damage DNA and spur cancer. A simple carrot soup is made by cooking some herbs and carrots and then adding them to a vegetable stock (or water) and blend it out. Later, stirring in some lemon juice and basil over the top.
