Not only are they affordable, but these foods can also be part of delicious, wholesome and nutritious recipes to help you fight off cancer and lead a healthier and more active lifestyle.

With cancer affecting 1 in 3 people, it is imperative to equip yourself with the knowledge to ward off this disease. You could learn about hifu procedures, or research the links between UV rays and the spread of cancer.

Kiwi Fruit

These super, tasty little fruits are high in vitamin C, which has proven to aid in the fight against cancer. Naturally sweet, they can be used as a snack replacement for that sneaky little chocolate bar that you were going to have with lunch.

Or, for a wonderfully healthy start to your day, why not try this easy-to-make fruit medley. Quick, simple, and delicious, this breakfast will leave you energised, refreshed and ready to tackle the day. If you don’t have much of an appetite in the morning, the versatile kiwi fruit can also be blended easily into a wonderfully tasty smoothie, perfect at any time of day! Just keep it chilled in the fridge.

Tomatoes

Is it a fruit or a vegetable? The debate goes on, but one certainty is that this little food packs a hearty punch against cancer. Packed full to the brim with antioxidants and vitamins, the tomato is a must on anyone’s shopping list. From eating it on its own (with a sprinkle of salt recommended) as a snack, to using it as a healthy addition to a breakfast (grilled tomato and scrambled eggs is a match made in heaven), do not overlook this might staple.

For a hearty meal, why not cover a roasted chicken with a homemade tomato-based sauce for a meal inspired by the shores of the Mediterranean?

Blueberries

And last on the list is the little blue fruit that has been hailed in scientific research as “the best cancer-fighting food” available. A welcome addition to any fruit salad, try new recipes and think outside the box with this little gem (after all, there are only so many salads or smoothies you can make before becoming bored of the taste!).

For a sweet, cancer-fighting snack that the kids (and you) will love, why not try homemade blueberry muffins? Use fresh blueberries and the taste difference will be noticeable immediately. There are a whole range of amazing blueberry recipes out there, as people are now aware of the huge health benefits that are on offer. Take advantage of this, especially when they are in-season and fresh (April-September).

Most importantly, have fun and be creative with your recipes. There are thousands of options open to you, but as long as you can pack these super-foods more readily into your diet, you are sure to be on the right foot to winning the fight against cancer.
