QUIZ: How Healthy Is Your Diet?
You can start lowering your cancer risk at your very next meal. Experts recommend that our diets revolve around plant foods, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans.
These foods tend to be low in calorie density. That means they provide fewer calories but because they’re full of fiber and water – they help to keep us feeling fuller for a longer time.
They also provide a wide range of nutrients, vitamins and minerals that our bodies need, as well as several phytochemicals – naturally occurring compounds in plants that have potentially health promoting effects.
