Soup: an Anti-Cancer Recipe
By Dr. Ben
you want to significantly lower your risk of developing cancer,
consider eating cabbage at least a few times a week. Cabbage belongs
to the Cruciferous family of vegetables - other vegetables that
belong in this family include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards,
Brussels sprouts, Bok Choy, watercress, and arugula.
found in cabbage and other Cruciferous vegetables stimulate your
genes to increase production of enzymes that detoxify your cells,
resulting in elimination of free radicals, toxins, and potential
carcinogens from your body.
you do a search through the archives of peer-reviewed and indexed
journals at the National Library of Medicine, you'll find numerous
studies that indicate that people who eat large amounts of cruciferous
vegetables have a lower-than-average risk of developing lung, colon,
breast, ovarian, prostate, and bladder cancer.
the most powerful, anti-cancer phytonutrient found in cabbage and
other cruciferous vegetables is indole-3-carbinole, a compound that
stimulates cellular detoxification, including estrogen detoxification.
Indole-3-carbinole's ability to prevent estrogen dominance is what
makes cruciferous vegetables like cabbage an excellent food choice
for cancer prevention, particularly breast cancer prevention.
you want to enjoy the many health benefits of cabbage but don't
know where to start, give the following Cabbage-Miso soup a try.
It's super easy to make, and is one of the tastiest soups that we
enjoy in our home.
Miso Soup Recipe
(around 10 ounces) chopped green cabbage
6 cups water or vegetable broth (vegetable broth adds lots of flavor)
2 celery ribs, diagonally sliced
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
8 garlic cloves, 4 finely chopped and 4 sliced
1/3 cup miso (or Korean den jang)
Few drops sesame oil per bowl(optional)
Bring 6 cups of water or vegetable broth to a boil in a big soup
pot. Add cabbage, celery, onion, carrot, and sliced garlic. Cover,
reduce to low-medium heat, and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes,
or until vegetables are tender.
Stir in chopped garlic, then turn off heat. Dissolve miso with some
of hot soup liquid in a cup or bowl, then pour it into the pot.
For an extra zing of flavor, add a few drops of sesame oil to each
bowl just before serving. If you enjoy sweet and sour soups, add
fresh lime juice (about 1 lime for the whole pot) right before adding
this nourishing cabbage and miso soup - it goes wonderfully with
a bowl of rice and kim
chi, a fermented Korean cabbage dish.
