Prescription for LIFE

Prescription for LIFE

What if your doctor told you there was a prescription to dramatically lower your risk of cancer? Or increase your chances of survival if diagnosed? All the while lowering your risk of heart disease and diabetes. What would you say? And what if that same prescription was food? Food that was delicious and simple to prepare. That is what we call Food for Life.

We now know that 35-60% of cancers are diet related. We also know that a plant-based diet high in fiber, low in saturated fats, and rich in whole foods is the best prescription for cancer prevention. By the way, this same way of eating will lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk for heart attack and diabetes, and lower your weight. Sounds like a prescription with side effects you want, right?

So what does this look like on your plate? You start with the new four food groups and build your plate from there. Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes form the Power Plate, our answer to the food pyramid. Breakfast may be cinnamon apple oatmeal, lunch could be a veggie wrap with soup, and dinner may be pasta marinara, a salad with chocolate mousse for dessert. How does that sound? Pretty delicious, right? It is! This is what we call Food For Life.

Want to know more? Check out our website at http://www.cancerproject.org or sign up for one of our local Food for Life classes. During a Food for Life class, our goal is to empower the participants and their families with easy to implement cooking skills to help them turn every meal into a healthy dose of nutrition. You learn more of the how and why about how food fight cancer and get to sample all the food made during the class. Healthy made easy for everyone.

Summer is here and my posts have been, well…

Except for my upcoming classes (which I really hope you will all check out!!!) I have not been writing. It is summer vacation and I am having a wonderful break with my family! So no excuses here but not much time for posting as of late.  I did just complete another amazing program and my next post will have all the exciting details. That will be coming soon.

In the meantime, let me share a new little indulgence of mine. One small scoop of Coconut Ice Cream (Vanilla Bean flavor) with a handful of pecans topped with a dash of maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon. I know what you’re thinking, one scoop of ice cream, really? My answer is YES! That is all you need because with the nuts and maple syrup, it’s heaven in a bowl. It’s also scrumptious with fresh berries! So when it’a really hot and everyone else is eating ice cream, treat yourself to this little gem. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
