Broccoli and Cabbage family

 

"Cruciferous" is just another word for most of the crunchy, dark-green vegetables you know. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, bok choy, kohlrabi, brussels sprouts, collards, mustard greens--you get the picture? Here's why you need them: Cruciferous vegetables contain a compound called Indole-3-Carbinol that, when combined with stomach acid, creates a metabolic agent that gets rid of excess estrogen, and uses the remaining estrogen for things like bone health and balanced hormones. Crazy, right? But awesome. Click here for delicious, easy cruciferous vegetable recipes.

Chia Seeds

 

Chia seeds are a triple-threat to cancer. They are the richest plant source of omega-3 fat, which the body uses to produce hormone-like molecules that reduce inflammation, prevent bone loss, and protect cells from cancer-causing toxins and free radicals. Their high fiber content promotes efficient metabolism and prevents toxins from building up in the body. The lignans in chia are used by the body to block estrogen receptors and decrease the risk of breast cancer. Chia seeds are a complete protein, with the full spectrum of amino acids in an easily digestible form. They have twice the protein of any other seed or grain, as well as 5 times the calcium of milk and 3 times the iron of spinach. Click here for delicious, easy chia seed recipes.

Fiber

 

Protein is great. Low-acid complex carbohydrates are great. But your body needs fiber to sweep itself clean. Without fiber, food just kind of sticks in your gut--you know the feeling. And it's a little-known (but often-guessed) fact that women are statistically more constipated than men. Estrogen molecules have to bind to fiber to leave the body. The colon is the exit hallway of the body, and if the toxins don't get out that way, they get reabsorbed. Bowel health is essential to breast health. Lucky for us, most of our favorite Yes Foods are just silly with fiber. Eating lots of raw vegetables and fruit ensures that you're getting enough water to balance the fiber you're consuming. Choose grains like quinoa or gluten-free oats that are packed with protein, to optimize your nutrition. Click here for delicious, easy high-fiber recipes.

Why Choose Local?

 

Pick a flower and carry it around with you for the rest of the day. What happens? The poor sucker loses its smell pretty quickly, doesn't it? Even putting it in the fridge can't bring it back. It loses its good looks pretty fast, too. Same thing goes for an apple after you pick it. It might last longer when you keep it in the fridge, but the longer it sits, the less alive it is. By the time you eat it, it might be nothing but fiber and water. Which is still good--but it would have been so much more nutritionally dense, and delicious, if you'd eaten it closer to the time it was picked. Eating local food means you're eating food closer to the time it was harvested. The nutrition hasn't had a chance to waste away while sitting in a giant warehouse, waiting to be put on the shelves. It hasn't been covered in carnauba wax to retain its color and shelf appeal. It doesn't have to be covered in sugar, or salt, or salad dressing, to taste good when you eat it. Growing your own food, joining a CSA, or buying from local vendors, really helps your health. Try it for a month and find out!
