How do you like your coffee – black, with milk, sugar or iced? People around the world enjoy coffee – it’s one of the most popular beverages. And, according to the latest AICR/WCRF Continuous Update Reports, coffee lowers risk for endometrial and liver cancers.
AICR recently featured a delicious cold brew coffee recipe, so that inspired me to learn how people around the world consume this beverage. I found a huge variety, both surprising and somewhat familiar. Perhaps these ideas will inspire you to find a new way to prepare your coffee tomorrow morning.
On this fourth of July, treat your family and friends to a healthy, delicious and cancer-protective backyard barbecue featuring a patriotic red, white and blue menu.
Brightly colored seasonal and familiar favorites like watermelon and blueberries are always welcome, but it’s also a great time to introduce new food ideas that fit on AICR’s New American Plate – a plant-focused way of eating for cancer prevention.
Fans of Indian food know that saag is a spinach sauce seasoned with cumin, turmeric and other spices that have cancer-preventing qualities. Our new Healthy Recipe for Spinach Saag (pronounced sog) uses health-protective soy as the protein in this delicious dish.
Restaurants feature saag made with paneer, a type of Indian cottage cheese. Paneer has a similar texture and color to firm tofu, made from soybeans. Soy adds protein, nutrients and a set of phytochemicals called isoflavones to your foods.
