Broccoli – Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial.  The phytochemicals in broccoli appears to slow the growth of leukemia, melanoma, and breast cancer.  When broccoli and tomatoes are eaten together, their cancer-fighting capabilities are more powerful because their active compounds work on different anti-cancer pathways.

Almonds – Anti-inflammatory.  A fantastic source of fiber which may help prevent colon cancer.  They have twice the antioxidant power with their skins on.  Almonds are also good blood sugar regulators.
