          Beans                                                  Salad with spinach, red cabbage,

                                                                 free dressing
  Ginger, rosemary, oregano, coriander (cilantro),
  turmeric and curry powder have all been found in
  laboratory studies to have antioxidant effects. Some
  have the ability to stimulate enzymes that detoxify
  carcinogens.

  Garlic contains at least three factors that slow cancer        Recipes:
  cell growth.                                                   Toss salad in bowl with tongs and
                                                                 choice of fat-free dressing
  Soy is high in isoflavones including phytoestrogen,
  Soy isoflavones have antioxidant properties.




Menu 3: Dinner
99% Fat-free Chicken w/ mushroom sauce
Spinach
Sweet Potatoes

Recipes:
Broil chicken, add choice of spice or herb, preferably garlic.
Bake sweet potatoes
Boil spinach
         This recipe is good for you because wheat bagels are high in fiber, which acts like a
sponge for bad fats. Pink grapefruit is good for your metabolism, preventing obesity. For lunch, all
the parts of the salad we listed are good for preventing cancer. This is because many of the
components have antioxidants (effective cancer prevention). The fat-free dressing helps prevent
obesity as well. For dinner, we suggest a nice meal of 99% fat-free chicken, much healthier than
your traditional charbroiled chicken breast. The sweet potatoes contain beta, and is yet another
cancer preventing food. Finally, spinach is very high in fiber and the color chemicals in it have
antioxidant effects. In order to cure the sweet tooth that many people have, we suggest an
enjoyable bowl of dark grapes for dessert. Again, the chemicals that make them have their dark
appearance also have anticancer effect. We also suggest a cup of green tea, which contains
polyphenols, an anti-cancer component. Follow this menu and you will be off to a healthy, cancer
–free diet!
