I recently posted a video on my AC Art Of Food Facebook page regarding a woman's testimony on how she beat cancer. She explained how not only was she diagnosed with breast cancer, but she beat it, and then it came back in another part of her body. This woman endured chemo and radiation, and after all that was given only 21 months to live. Fast forward TWELVE YEARS LATER, this miracle of a woman is sharing how she beat this beast of a disease with a positive outlook and eating not only healthy, but a specific type of healthy foods. These specific foods are known as alkaline foods.
There is a scale in our bodies on the ph spectrum that balances acid and alkaline in the body. You want your body on the alkaline side. 'Why' you ask? Cancer cells CANNOT live in an alkaline environment. For this reason, prevention is paramount.
This champion of a woman beat the odds by focusing her diet on alkaline rich foods. Just think, if we all incorporated alkaline rich foods into our diets the monumental changes we can make to our lives. Please be clear, I am not stating, nor am I in a position to state, that this is a cure for cancer. However, I am expressing that alkaline foods are a large contributor in the fight against cancer.
I became so pumped by this story that my mind immediately started buzzing with ideas on how to create delicious recipes rich in alkaline. There are plenty of these types of foods to choose from, check out a few of my favs below:
I didn't have to look any further than my own backyard garden for one of the stars of my recipe where I'm growing gorgeous swiss chard! The recipe you ask? Here it is! My colorful Alkaline Rich Black Bean & Leek Salad. This amazing salad was a huge hit at our cookout! But this is just the beginning! I can't wait to develop more of my new 'F@#$ Cancer' recipes!
