The weekend is here and you have lots of time to relax. You have plenty of time to make your family a nice lunch or dinner. You likely want to make sure your meals are healthy and nutritious for yourself and your kids.
But do you know what type of food is truly healthy? What kind of meals could actually prevent cancer and heart disease? What should you eat if you are a breast cancer survivor?
The Dana Farber Cancer Institute answers these very questions on their website. Be sure to stick to a plant-based diet filled with fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains.
Be sure to eat 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day. The type of food you can add to your shopping cart when buying groceries this weekend include beans, lentils, whole grains, avocado, olive oil, nuts, nut butter, veggies, and fruits.
The Cleveland Clinic also provided some important details on diet among breast cancer survivors. The type of vegetables you should add to your meals include broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale.
If you love your protein, try to limit to more healthy versions such as poultry, fish, eggs, beans, nuts, seeds, seafood, and lentils. Fish will bring you better health so be sure to include salmon, sardines, herring, and tuna.
Some typical recipes for dinner that incorporate these delicious food products are below.
Add some ginger, honey, garlic, orange juice, and soy sauce into one bowl and mix. Put the salmon into a baking pan. Spread the sauce on top of the salmon.
Preheat the grill on medium heat and be sure to add some oil to layer on the grill. Put the salmon on the grill.
Grill the salmon on each side for 12 minutes per side. Check to see if the salmon is cooked by cutting it down the middle.
Another excellent recipe for your dinner is the broccoli stir fry with an avocado-ginger sauce. The first step is to use a food processor and add two avocados, ginger, olive oil, salt, and lemon juice. Blend the ingredients until you create a smooth sauce.
When making the stir fry, heat some oil in a pan and add onion to soften for five minutes. Next, add some garlic and fry it for two minutes.
Add broccoli and a quarter of a cup of water. Cover the pan and let it heat for three minutes. Add some cabbage to steam for another couple of minutes.
Next, put some kale or spinach on a plate. Add the stir fry mixture on top of the kale and pour the sauce on top of the stir fry.
These are great recipes that should help you keep healthy. You’ll enjoy a delicious meal as well!
