  • Use healthier cooking methods - Try broiling, grilling, roasting, or baking your holiday meals instead of frying and sautéing them. This reduces the amount of fat and allows the true taste of the food to come through.
  • Cook with lower-fat dairy products - By using low-fat dairy products, you decrease the intake of fat that is later stored and used by cancer cells to grow. In most cases, you and your guests will not notice the difference in taste.
  • Include fish in your holiday tradition - The Omega-3 oils in tuna, salmon, and mackerel appear to be protective of cell linings in fighting off cancer growth. Avoid tuna packed in vegetable oil, however.
  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables - Research indicates that people who eat five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day can cut their cancer risk in half compared to those who eat only one serving per day.
  • Make a spinach salad - Spinach contains one of the top cancer-fighting enzymes, sulforaphane, where traditional iceberg lettuce is a nutritional weakling. Don't drench the salad with too much dressing which adds fat and calories. Even low-fat dressing may be loaded with too much sugar.
  • Use tomato and pasta sauce - Research has proven that processed tomato products have a higher concentration of lycopene, the most powerful antioxidant carotenoid, than unprocessed tomato products. This includes tomato sauce, pasta sauce, stewed tomatoes, and other tomato products.
  • Drink tea - Soda contains nothing more than empty calories and some juice drinks can be loaded with sugar. Green tea is one of the best drinks because it contains no calories and has well-documented cancer-fighting properties.
  • Additionally, you should seek time to relax. Enjoy the holidays and try to make them as stress-free as possible! For more information and yummy recipes to enjoy this holid
