ProSource - Breast Cancer Charity

Who is the Breast Cancer Charities of America?

Breast Cancer Charities of America (BCCA) exists for one reason—to eliminate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. Our central focus is on educating, empowering and encouraging all women to become proactive in preventing breast cancer and, if diagnosed, in surviving breast cancer.

A major part of accomplishing the task of prevention and survivorship is relaying the importance of physical activity and healthy eating choices.

Why Does Healthy Eating Matter?

Healthy eating is so important for breast cancer prevention/recovery because it fuels the body, providing the necessary vitamins and minerals to help build the immune system, keep you healthy, increase positive effects of treatment, and even prevent the disease. As a rule of thumb:

 

  • More fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and whole grains.By emphasizing these foods, you are maximizing plant nutrients.  These provide more cancer fighting compounds than any other foods. Strive for 9 servings daily.  

 

  • More of the right fats.  Satisfy your desire for meat by choosing fish like salmon, tuna and sardines, which are rich in Omega-3 acids.  Cook and prepare dressings with canola or olive oils, the mono-unsaturated facts.  

 

  • Less alcohol.Think hard about drinking habits.  No more than one alcoholic drink per day for women.  

 

ProSource does a fantastic job of providing innovative workout ideas and ways to stay active. So what better way than to join them this October by trying these two great recipes that have proven cancer-fighting superfoods, and will support any healthy lifestyle!
