Fill your Thanksgiving table with traditional foods that prevent cancer and glow with all the colors of autumn. Orange butternut squash and sweet potatoes, dark crimson cranberries, golden corn, toasty whole grains and nuts and leafy greens and green beans are just a few harvest season goodies that provide fiber and a wide range of phytochemicals.
Cooked in healthy ways, your Thanksgiving feast can include mostly plant-based foods, as AICR’s New American Plate model for cancer-fighting meals recommends.
