This powerful cancer-fighting sprout salad supercharges your immune system and contains ingredients that fight cancer at the source.
There are few meals healthier than a salad. The problem is, store-bought or restaurant salads can be packed with unnecessary calories and are drenched with dressing.
Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in this powerful cancer-fighting sprout salad.
Nuts are not often thought of as a cancer fighting food, but research says otherwise. Mounting medical evidence shows that eating a handful of nuts per day can go a long way in the fight against cancer.
There is mounting evidence that avocados are potent cancer fighters. They help the body against free radical damage. Avocados are high in oleic acid, which is a monounsaturated fatty acid found in many plant sources and animal products. It is an omega-9 fatty acid, and is considered one of the healthier sources of fat.
Sprouts are extremely potent because they are still young, and are a rich source of essential nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, vitamin, A, C, B vitamins, and vitamin K. They are also a good source of minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and manganese.
Kale is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents and may help fight cancer. Like all cruciferous vegetables, kale is also a great source of glucosinolates, which in a study published in the International Journal of Cancer showed potential anti-cancer benefits.
Spinach ranks among the highest in flavonoids and phytonutrients, which are compounds that have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Foods with anti-inflammatory properties are highly regarded because of their ability to reduce pain associated with inflammation, and their potential to help prevent serious diseases including many types of cancers.
Toss the following ingredients a bowl:
1 cup of kale, chopped
1 cup of spinach
1/2 cup of broccoli sprouts
1/2 an avocado, chopped
Handful of almonds, chopped
Make sure ingredients are organic
