Breast Cancer Plan

 

Balanced ratios: 60% . 20% . 20%

 

These menus are for women who are serious about taking preventative steps to lower their risk for breast cancer. The Breast Cancer menus are predominantly plant-based; low in saturated fats and moderate in unsaturated fats (the healthy fats); rich in calcium and moderate in sugar and sodium.

These meal plans are high in fiber and whole-grains, which may help to fight breast cancer by lowering levels of estrogen in the body. These menus include good sources of unsaturated fats (specifically monounsaturated fats and Omega-3 fatty acids) in the form of fish, flaxseed, and nuts, which also may help fight breast cancer.

The foods contained in these menus increase your intake of phytochemicals and antioxidants (which also can help to protect you from certain health problems such as breast cancer). Antioxidants can be found through a large variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.

Phytochemicals include: indoles in vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower, polyphenols present in green or black tea, lycopene in red colored produce, beta-carotene in orange and yellow produce and isoflavones in legumes such as soybeans.
