Cancer Fighting Recipes for Easter

For those of you preparing an Easter meal this weekend, you are likely planning to serve Lamb or Ham (if you’re not vegetarian). Ham is a tradition in the U.S. because before refrigeration, pork was cured after the fall slaughter, but it wasn’t ready to be eaten until spring. So by Easter time, the curing process was complete.

AICR recommends avoiding processed meat such as ham because it is a cause of colon cancer, however, this may be one of those special occasions for you and your family when ham makes an appearance at your dinner table.

Just be sure to fill the rest of your plate with cancer-fighting plant foods like vegetables, fruit, whole grains and legumes. Try some recipes From the AICR Test Kitchen:

Spring Vegetable Soup – quick, easy and colorful

Roasted Asparagus with Garlic – a beautiful accompaniment to any spring meal
