Minestrone_161 KBPerfect for Cancer Prevention Month, our excellent Health-e-Recipe for Very Vegetable Minestrone is teeming with anti-cancer compounds from seven vegetables and two kinds of beans, plus barley, fresh herbs and garlic.

We hear a lot about eating fewer unhealthy foods for better health, but this soup invites you to eat more cancer-fighting foods. AICR’s expert report recommends eating more of a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes such as beans to reduce cancer risk.

Why? Each kind of plant food in this dish provides vitamins and phytochemicals that work together like a safety net to protect your cells from damage that may lead to cancer. Vegetables, beans and whole grains like barley also contain lots of fiber. One serving of this Minestrone contains a whopping 13 grams of fiber per serving. That’s not only great for cancer prevention – it contributes to heart health and diabetes prevention, too.
