Food is Medicine

One of the biggest allies your friend or loved one has in her arsenal for fighting breast cancer is food.  We'd all be well-served (sorry for the pun) to remember that food is medicine, with preventive and healing properties.  It's especially important to nourish a body that is under attack from the cancer, or trauma from surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.

In The Best Friend's Guide to Breast Cancer, I discuss the healing power of 13 super cancer-fighting foods and why they are nutritional powerhouses.  The following six recipes (a small sample from the book) each contain some combination of the super foods on the list.  Unfussy, simple, and easy to make, they're sure to bring comfort to your friend or loved one during any phase of her illness.  Here's to healing!
