I always look forward to this time of year â€” when the days get shorter and temperatures drop. This is the perfect time to go for a hike in the woods, toss a football, wear those comfortable corduroy pants, crank up the fire place, and have some warm nourishing food. Soups are a staple for many people in the fall. I have included some soup recipes with great seasonal foods like pumpkin, lentils, and sweet potatoes, as well as some tasty side salads recipes to complete your meal. And for your sweet tooth, we have recipes that use wonderful fall fruits like apples and oranges. Al of thees dishes provide anti-aging benefit because of their high levels of antioxidants as well as vitamins and minerals. Enjoy!
Do you know eight women? One of them will likely develop breast cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, nearly 182,000 women are diagnosed with the disease and about 50,000 die each year in the United States.
Although risk factors linked to breast cancer – gender, age, race and family history – are unavoidable, the good news is that dietary changes may help. New research published in Nutrition and Cancer has reported walnut consumption dramatically suppressed tumor growth. Lead researcher W. Elaine Hardman, Ph.D., of Marshall’s School of Medicine believes walnuts may have at least three components that may account for their cancer-slowing effect. They are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to slow cancer growth. They also include antioxidants and components called phytosterols, both of which have shown cancer-slowing effects in other studies.
