Cancer Fighting Foods for Cancer Control Month

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:14pm


I saw a post on Kalyn's blog about the Cancer Fighting Foods event being run by Chris from Melecotte



Current research suggests that around half of all cancers could be prevented by changes to lifestyle. One of those changes is to limit alcohol and maintain a healthy diet. You can read more here



For anybody that is interested in the association of food and cancer, you may be interested to read about the EPIC (European Prospective Investigation of Cancer)study. This is a prospective study of more than 500,000 people (more than 30,000 are vegetarians), from ten countries across Europe. The aim is to produce detailed, reliable information about the association between the diet and cancer







1 butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and cut into eight slices, lengthwise

1 sweet potato

3 carrots, peeled and cut in half lengthways

3 small parsnips, peeled and cut into four lengthways

4 shallots, peeled and cut in half legthways

4 cloves garlic, cut into two lengthways

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp runny honey

1 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves

1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves

2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

1 lemon, washed and cut unto four wedges



To serve 4-6 as a side dish or 2-3 as a main course dish



Place all the vegetables with rosemary and thyme into a large bowl, drizzle over the honey and olive oil, toss together with your hands, to ensure even coating with the olive oil and honey

Tip the contents of the bowl into a roasting tin, roast in a moderate oven, for 30 - 45 minutes, untill the vegetables are tender and taking on a roasted colour

Place the contents of the roasting tin on a serving platter and scatter the parsley, squeeze half a lemon over, and add the two remaining wedges to the platter
