Frequently Asked Questions

 


Diana, what are the top 10-20 foods that you make sure you eat on a regular basis?

What a good question! I will just simply list them in alphabetical order. All these foods have components with significant anti-cancer activity, in addition to multiple other healthful benefits. I eat most of these foods on a daily basis, or like in the case of fatty fish, at least a couple of times per week.

You will find dozens of recipes on my web site that incorporate these foods. I buy most of these foods every time I go to the grocery store. I could add many other wonderful foods, too, if I could make a list of 50-100 foods, herbs, and spices. :-)

Avocados
Beans and legumes
Berries
Broccoli Family
Carrots
Fatty fish
Flax seeds
Garlic and onions
Green tea
Herbs (rosemary)
Kale and other greens
Nuts (Brazil nuts, hazelnuts)
Soy foods
Olives
Olive Oil
Orange juice (calcium-fortified)
Shiitake Mushrooms
Spices (curcumin)
Tomatoes
Whole grains
Yogurt (low-fat) w/live cultures
