Happy Movember my fit followers! This special month has become an important month for health awareness of the cancer kind. Men’s health in particular.

So I’d like to take a minute to talk about some of the super foods that may be linked to lowering the risk of cancer! Obviously these won’t be as effective if you are a smoker or consistently expose yourself to other carcinogens (ahem tanning beds ahem) but they can be combined with other healthy lifestyle choices to decrease your risk.

Let’s take a look:

The Best Foods

  1. Broccoli and other leafy greens -according to Health Magazine
  2. COFFEE -all the coffee lovers everywhere give me a fist pump!
  3. Also Green Tea *meh
  4. Whole Grains
  5. Red Wine- I’m in love
  6. Beans and Lentils
  7. Nuts
  8. Berries
  9. Vitamin D- We’re talking fishy foods here. Not the deep fried kind.

And some of the WORST foods

  1. Processed meats
  2. Animal Fats
  3. “Diet” soda and “diet” or “low fat” foods that are loaded with chemicals you can’t pronounce on the label (Ex. Pyridoxine Hyrdochloride- found in Pop Tarts and sugary cereals).

Cancer is a wicked disease that becomes more prominent with the appearance of more and more processed and greasy foods made available in the grocery store and the millions of fast-food chains popping up everywhere. Never stop fighting for your right to live a happy healthy life.

*This post was inspired by Heraclio Ruiz who is currently battling terminal cancer. Please feel free to share the name of someone you know who is a survivor or in memory of someone who fought bravely trying to beat cancer in the comment section so that we can send a prayer up for them.
