Stock Up on Cancer-Fighting Springtime Fruits and Veggies!
Did you know that switching to a plant-based diet can significantly reduce your risk for cancer? With the first day of spring on March 20th, you can look forward to a profusion of cancer-fighting, springtime fruits, and vegetables. Besides keeping your diet fresh, buying what’s in season can also help build your confidence as you make better food choices that support your long-term health goals.
Plant Foods to Include in Your Diet
Besides giving you days full of sunshine, springtime offers abundant fresh produce. Springtime fruits and greens are real nutrition powerhouses that lower your risk of cancer and promote your overall health. One of the best things you can do on the first day of spring is to increase the amount and variety of the following plant foods on your plate:
This sweet treat is the best fat-free dessert option for anyone who’s trying to lower their cancer risks while maintaining a healthy weight. What’s more, pineapples are packed with vitamin C! When choosing pineapples, be sure to get the ones that don’t have dark spots and dry-looking leaves.
Strawberries are loaded with vitamins and minerals that protect your body from skin, esophageal, bladder, lung, and breast cancers. Fresh strawberries still have their green caps attached and more than half of the berry surface is pink or red. Avoid getting strawberries that show signs of decay or damage.
If you’re looking to find a rich source of fiber, folate, and antioxidants, broccoli won’t disappoint. This mighty green is a popular member of the cruciferous family that helps prevent colorectal cancer. To make sure that you’re buying fresh broccoli, choose odorless bunches that come with tight, bluish-green florets.
Spinach gives you the fullness of green goodness because it powers up your body with fiber, folate, and antioxidants that lower your risk of cancers of the larynx, pharynx, and mouth. When buying spinach, be sure to look for fresh, crisp, and green bunches. Keep an eye out for leaves that show insect damage.
