Take a virtual trip to the Caribbean when you make our islands-inspired Health-e-Recipe for Caribbean Cabbage.
Scotch bonnet peppers are a popular ingredient in Jamaican cooking, where they spice up even cold dishes like this one. They contain capsaicin, a phytochemical that may ward off inflammation.
This dish teems with cancer-preventive compounds thanks to the cabbage, which contains some of the same protective substances as its cruciferous relatives broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Onion, scallion and garlic contribute healthy sulphur compounds while carrots and tomato add the carotenoid phytochemicals beta-carotene and lycopene. Fresh thyme provides the finishing touch.
So imagine you’re sitting on a beautiful beach with the aquamarine sea rolling in as you enjoy this healthy slaw. Find more delicious cancer-fighting recipes at the AICR Test Kitchen. Subscribe to our weekly Health-e-Recipes.

Feta cheese, pumpkin seeds and crunchy corn chips for garnish also make this salad interesting. Top it with our easy honey-lime dressing, which you can use on other salads as well. To make it a more complete meal, add a half-cup of chopped roast chicken breast to each serving (for another 150 calories and lean protein).
A novel idea to some and outlandish to others, breakfast for dinner for me, is a match made in heaven. Who hasn’t had a slice of pizza for breakfast before? So why should it be so different to have breakfast foods for dinner? Breakfast at dinner is also a great way to pack in cancer-protective fruits and vegetables, and offers a variety of vegetarian options.
Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. And breakfast for dinner has been a part of my routine since I was a child.
All the wonderful options to choose from and endless possibilities abound. Seriously, I think there are probably a million variations of pancakes alone. I have always found that most of the common breakfast items (eggs, pancakes, fruits) are easy to prepare and don’t put up a lot of fuss.
Think about it, with most breakfast items you don’t have to worry about forgetting to take anything out of the freezer before you rush off to work. The good thing about breakfast is that most people have ingredients like eggs, milk, flour, yogurt, fruits, vegetables, and they all reside in the refrigerator or pantry! Breakfast food my friends, is here to save the day.
