Berry Breakfast Parfait


Breakfast, snack or dessert this parfait delivers protein, fiber and cancer-fighting compounds like vitamin C and the phytochemical ellagic acid. Boost protein by subbing plain Greek style yogurt for the regular. Package up for an on-the-go breakfast, make ahead for afternoon snack or serve as a stunning dessert for summer parties. You can use whatever summer berries or fruit are available.

Kale Frittata with Tomato and Basil

Shrimp Fajitas

Fill most of your plate with veggies and other plant foods to keep calories low, which helps you stay a healthy weight, one important step for lower cancer risk.

Grilled Panzanella

Create a salad with a twist – toasted whole grain bread, grilled veggies and fresh fragrant basil. Serve with fish or a grilled veggie burger for a light and cancer-protective summer meal.

Get everyone cooking with a kid-friendly salad. The recipe calls for canned corn, but you can use fresh corn or thawed frozen corn, and any other fresh veggie on hand. Black beans pack protein and a whole host of cancer-fighting substances like fiber and flavonoids.
