Jean LaMantia, Author of The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook, Offers Healthy and Delicious Alternative to Traditional Christmas Cake
Date:12/19/2012

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) December 19, 2012

As a cancer survivor and registered dietitian Jean LaMantia likes to tinker with traditional recipes to increase their health impact, particularly to boost up the amount of cancer-fighting ingredients.

"I have some easy rules that can apply to most recipes; reduce the sugar, replace refined grains with whole grains, add more fruit or vegetables, add herbs and spices and if appropriate replace some or all of the meat with vegetarian proteins likes beans, peas, lentils or chickpeas, replace solid fats with healthy liquid ones like olive oil or organic canola oil."

In this recipe, traditional sugared and coloured cherries are replaced with dried cranberries and cherries, both of which are very good sources of disease-fighting phytonutrients. Because they are naturally sweet the recipe doesn't need any additional sugar.

In addition, Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium, a mineral and anti-oxidant that has been found to be beneficial against cancer cells. Dates, the other prominent ingredient in this recipe are also anti-oxidant rich and have some cancer-fighting potential.

The ground flax seeds add some omega-3 fats as well as lignans - more cancer fighting ingredients. Once you try it for Christmas, don't forget to make it again - it's a great recipe to take camping, or any time to need a healthy and satisfying snack that can be eaten on the go.

This original recipe and others can be found on http://www.jeanlamantia.com. Jean LaMantia is a cancer survivor, registered dietitian and author of The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook, when she isn't creating new healthy recipes she can be found teaching healthy nutrition classes to cancer patients and survivors at Wellspring, a cancer support agency. She provides nutrition seminars to interested groups including cancer patients, caregivers or any group that is interested in healthy eating.
