The superstars for breast cancer protection include all cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower) ; dark leafy greens (collards, kale, spinach) ; carrots and tomatoes. The superstar fruits include citrus, berries and cherries.

I find getting lots of fruit into “The Beasties” is easy, same for spinach (try this no-prep Trader Joes Cookbook recipe for spinach lasagna), broccoli, carrots and toms, but some of the others are a struggle.
