Eat your Soup

Good nutrition starts with healthy food. The Cancer Nutrition Center Handbook contains diet plans and dietary suggestions for various conditions, along with over 100 detailed recipes for a variety of tasty and healthy dishes and drinks. Each recipe indicates its special nutritional value and breakdown and its time to prepare. Here is a sample:

Phytomineral Soup

This provides a wide variety of essential minerals and trace elements useful in maintaining optimal health. Make this soup in bulk and freeze individual serving sizes. I have seen people who say that years after recovering from cancer they still eat this soup on a regular basis because they love it.

1 medium chopped onion 1/2 cup firm tofu
2 sticks chopped celery 2 cups spinach leaves, chopped fine
4 cloves crushed garlic 1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon curry powder 1 teaspoon thyme
2 medium sliced carrots 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 cup corn 1 tablespoon olive oil
1 15 ounce can tomatoes 5 cups water
1 packet vegetable bouillon cube pinch salt
1 cup frozen peas 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, fresh ground

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Sauté the onions and garlic for 3-5 minutes. Add the celery and carrots and sauté for a further 2 minutes. Add the corn, tomatoes, parsley, thyme, rosemary and sage. Dissolve the packet of vegetable broth in a cup of boiling water. Add to the pan with 4 more cups of water. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add the peas, tofu and spinach. Season to taste and simmer for 5 more minutes.

Notes: Excellent source of Vitamin C, A, B6, Folate and Iron. Good source of Vitamin B1, B2, Niacin, Calcium and Zinc.
