The best diet to avoid cancer

As a 19-year cancer survivor (this month!) and certified health coach, I am often asked which foods are best for not only healing from cancer treatment,  but for preventing a recurrence. This always brings me back to when I completed treatment and asked my oncologist that same question. He pretty much told me to go back to the way I was eating before–that diet didn’t really make a big impact on healing from cancer.

Somehow my intuition told me differently, and besides longing to have some sense of control over my body and my health, I definitely wanted to gain my energy back so that I could keep up with my two-year old son.

All these years later, I feel better than ever!

What foods do I make an integral part of my diet?

After researching which foods support the body in healing and preventing cancer, I came to understand that eating an anti-inflammatory diet is crucial, as cancer is an inflammatory disease.

Here are some helpful hints:

  • Eat whole, fresh unprocessed foods (avoid packaged food)
  • Eat a wide variety of colorful fruits and veggies (6-10 servings a day)
  • Incorporate healthy fats, emphasizing omega-3 fats found in wild salmon, cod and sardines.
  • More healthy fats-walnuts, almonds, avocados, olives, flax seeds, chia seeds
  • Emphasize a plant-based diet
  • If choose to eat meat look for grass-fed (more omega 3-s ) as opposed to grain fed
  • Eat plenty of fiber from whole grains, fruits, vegetables and beans

With love and good health,
