I really like Lisa’s approach that combines clinical nutrition with the practical side, which is cooking healthily. Not only does Lisa’s blog provide articles on current topics such as “Eating To Fight Cancer: To Meat or Not To Meat” and “Super Hero Foods,” but her Recipe Box is full of healthier choices, including “Flex-Able” recipes for people transitioning to a meat-free diet. I look forward to bouncing ideas off of Lisa as I continue my journey in coming up with cancer and disease-fighting recipes. Check out Lisa’s A Moment in a Busy Life.

You don’t have to remember the chemical compound names, just remember that you should indulge frequently in these veggies:
Broccoli Brussels sprouts
Collard greens Horseradish
Mustard greens Radishes
Rutabaga Turnip greens
