Even though breast cancer awareness month is coming to a close, we can all continue to make conscious choices to stay healthy. Adding superfoods to one’s diet can be beneficial in the fight against cancer. Superfoods are those real, non-processed foods that are nutrient rich. They contain high amounts of essential vitamins, minerals, protein and antioxidants. Vibrant colored fruits and vegetables are considered to have superfood status. Superfoods include, but are not limited to, broccoli, spinach, kale, blueberries, tomatoes, pumpkin, beets, oranges, walnuts, yogurt, tea (black or green), oats, soy, beans and salmon. Check out Johnson's Backyard Garden to see what is available locally or just stop by the local market and stock up on all these nutrient rich foods. Staying healthy is something to strive for year round. (Gina)
