Eating healthily around the holidays can be very difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. This holiday-inspired cookbook provides great recipes that are packed with cancer-fighting nutrients. Try not to look at foods as “good” or “bad,” but rather opportunities to feed your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. A diet that includes a great variety of foods along with fruits and vegetables at every meal or snack is your best defense against fighting cancer.

Each recipe has one or more of these important components to help you stay healthy. Try some of these recipes for a delicious way to prevent cancer.
