This breakfast muffin is a yummy way to start your day AND get a head start on your daily fruit and vegetable requirements (5-7 servings each day). It’s perfect with a dish of fresh fruit for breakfast, a warm bowl of soup at lunchtime, or a mid-afternoon snack.
Carrots: Anti-inflammatory. Studies show that just one carrot a day could cut lung cancer risk in half. That’s probably due to their extremely high vitamin A content, which is vital to promoting lung health. They’re also rich in beta-carotene which is associated with preventing lung, mouth, throat, stomach, intestinal, bladder, prostate, and breast cancers.
Zucchini: Because dietary fiber promotes healthy and regular bowel movements, the high amounts of fiber in zucchini also help prevent carcinogenic toxins from settling in the colon. Moreover, the vitamins C and A, as well as folate, found in zucchini act as powerful antioxidants that fight oxidative stress that can lead to many different types of cancer.
Coconut is a great antibiotic. Half of the saturated fat content is converted by the body into monolaurin, a powerful antibacterial and antiviral compound. Monolaurin is the absolute enemy of many disease-causing germs, and may play a role in attacking cancer as well.
