ZERO loves hearing that more and more prostate cancer patients, survivors and caretakers are working plant-based foods into their diets. So we decided to spotlight YOUR Meatless Monday recipes! Our first two recipes come from Ropizah Ervin. She developed several vegetarian recipes while her husband was undergoing treatment for prostate cancer in 2019.
If you have a Meatless Monday recipe you’d like to share, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to showcase your ideas with our “Journey to ZERO” readers.
Two IMPORTANT TIPS for Prostate Health:
- Limit Consumption of Animal Protein
- Diets high in red meat, dairy products and animal fat have frequently been connected with the development of prostate cancer. Red meat (such as beef, pork, and lamb) is particularly tied to aggressive prostate cancer.
- Seek Plant Protein
- Plant-based protein like beans, flax and nuts contain quercetin and lignans that suppress the growth of many kinds of cancer including prostate cancer.
