What You Can Do for Cancer Prevention!
I believe that everyone should do what they can for cancer prevention. One of the Mayo Clinic’s seven tips to reduce your risk of cancer is to get adequate medical care. So, this morning I had my colonoscopy, as my mother had colon cancer 25 years ago. There are things we can do! Cancer prevention is important and so are the foods you eat. Whether you have a family history or not, at a certain age, you should have a colonoscopy. No, it isn’t fun, pleasant or enjoyable but we all get through it. Get the testing out of the way but focus on good cancer prevention recipes like my kale salad year round. Eating healthy can make a difference and I have easy recipes for cancer patients and prevention. Do you like to cook?

Mini Whisk Perfect To Make Vinaigrette’s Like Fruity Vinaigrette in Kale Salad
Long Mini Wire Kitchen Whisks –
Don’t laugh but I LOVE a mini wire whisk. They are great to whisk together a vinaigrette in a small cup. Have you ever found your big whisk won’t even fit into a small cup you need to make the vinaigrette. And, talk about inexpensive.
If you don’t have a big whisk, pick up one of those also but I promise you will end up using this mini whisk more than you think.
Cancer Prevention with Fruits and Veggies Like Amazing Fruity Kale Salad
Second on the Mayo Clinic’s list for the best habits for cancer prevention is eating a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables! My cookbook, Eating Well Through Cancer, focuses on the foods best tolerated while undergoing cancer treatment. On my healthy food blog, I have healthy easy recipes that focus on cancer recipes. Gluten free and diabetic friendly, this Kale Salad with Fruity Vinaigrette combines veggies and fruit for a delicious punch of nutrition that is one of my favorite salads!
