Anti cancer lunch #2

Spiced carrot soup
Cinnamon biscuits
Spinach salad w/ fruit and walnuts
Fresh herb vinaigrette
Reverse osmosis water

Take one pack of organic baby carrots and steam them in 2 inches of water in a medium sause pan.

Meanwhile, brown one chopped onion in olive oil for about 10 minutes. Add 1tbls ground ginger, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and one clove of minced garlic. Continue to cook another 5 minutes. Set aside.

When carrots are tender add them to the steam water along with the onion mixture and simmer for 10 minutes longer. When all veggies are soft remove from heat and cool until you can safely handle the soup. Put in a blender or food processor and spin until thick and creamy.

Warm and serve with cinnamon biscuits

Anti cancer breakfast #2

Ezekiel Sprouted whole grain cereal, blueberries, chopped banana, almonds. Serve with green tea.

If you haven't tired the Ezekiel breads and cereals, you are in for a treat.
 There are 8 grams of protein and  less than 1 gram of sugar, and 6 grams of fiber just in the cereal. Add organic milk and some other goodies and you have a power packed breakfast.

As far as green teas go I like Sencha, but a more affordable decent option is Newman's green tea.

You don't have to have cancer to eat high power food. They are all good for general health as well as being anti-cancer foods.

Cancer Vaccine developed at Rosewell-Parks Cancer Institute

Here is a clip about a vaccine for cancer that has promise. This made me weep with joy and hope. I knew that several researchers have been working on vaccines in other countries, but this is the first I have heard of one here in the states.  Roswell cancer institute says it may have this vaccine on the market in 5 years. Clinical studies have been approved. Phase one will start with a small number of patients and last a year. If the vaccine is deemed safe and effective it will move to the next phase and then on to the market. Keep your fingers crossed on this one folks. For those of us who live daily with the fear of recurrence this is a very big deal!

Thank you

A big think you to all who participated in the letter writing campaign to Washington. I am estimating that our group alone sent over 1000 letters. I noticed that Obama mentioned cancer cures in his state of the union address, so our letters are right on time! You can all feel good about yourselves for helping with this. I hope and pray that our daughters never have to endure what I did with this disease.

Help end breast cancer now by sending a pink letter on January 23rd

I wanted to let you know that members of are planning a mass pink mailing to Washington on January 23rd. Many are choosing to use the language in the petition drafted by the Breast Cancer Coallition ( and others are writing personal letters. Some of us are doing both.

Please ask everyone you know to join us in making an enormous pink delivery so that it can be picked up by the media. There is power in numbers.

The odds of the women and little girls in your life of facing breastcancer is now 1 in 8. Someone is diagnosed every 3 minutes in this country.

Power packed anti cancer dinner #1

I tend to eat lighter at dinner time. Here is what I had last night.

Organic egg salad sandwich on toasted Ezekiel bread.
I add  a tsp of fresh chopped parsley, 1/4 tsp of dill, and load up the greens. I like baby greens the best.

I sliced up 1/2 an orange and had it on the side.

For desert I had a cup of coconut chai tea sweetened with stevia and a splash of organic milk on top. Yum! If you haven't found Ezekiel bread yet, give it a try. It is made with sprouted grains. It has 4 grams of protein in each slice. Food for life is the company that makes it. Zhenas Gypsy tea makes the Coconut chai tea. It has cinnamon, ginger, cloves, & cardamom.
