Antipasto of Sweet Potatoes and Mushrooms

Mushrooms and Sweet Potatoes Recipe For a Cancer DietBy: Neeva Kedem, Founder of Never Meat Again.
So simple and yet, so tasty! I add them to my salads. You can bake them together or separately.

What you need:

  • 3-4 Portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Sweet potatoes, sliced
  • 2-3 spoons olive oil
  • Dried oregano
  • Dried basil
  • Dried rosemary leaves
  • Dried thyme leaves
  • Himalayan Pink Salt to taste

What to do:

Place the sweet potatoes and mushrooms in a baking tray. Pour the olive oil on top and sprinkle all the herbs on top.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until the mushrooms are soft and remove them from the tray; continue to bake the sweet potatoes for 10-15 minutes until they soft but a bit crispy.

Neeva KedemAbout Neeva Kedem: Couple of years ago my life took a nice turn when I became vegan. It happened after my 40th birthday; I kind of realized that my health and energy are not as they used to be, and that change is needed. After reading lots of researches and studies, I understood that eating healthier food that is based on plants and natural ingredients will be the best for me, and so I did. It didn’t happen overnight; first, I gave up red meat. Then chicken, which was very hard for me. And only about a year later – cheese and eggs. Today I can say that being vegan improved my health and energy levels, and that I love being vegan!

Hearty Barley And Shiitake Mushroom Soup Recipe

Easy To Make Shiitake Mushroom & Barley Soup For Breast Cancer

Shiitake mushrooms are promoted to fight the development and progression of cancer by boosting the body’s immune system. These mushrooms are also said to help prevent heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels and to help treat infections such as hepatitis by producing interferon, a group of natural proteins that stops viruses from multiplying. Promoters claim that eating both the cap and stem of the mushroom may be helpful. Shiitake contains proteins, fats, carbohydrates, soluble fiber, vitamins (A, B, B12, C, D, niacin), and minerals. We have included this hearty soup recipe that is healthy, easy to make and a meal in itself. Make a batch and freeze in single portions.


  • 1 package fresh shittake mushrooms, sliced
  • 3/4 cup pearled barley
  • 2 veggie cubes
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 to 2 cloves (left whole)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • Alkaline water to cover

Throw everything in a large pot. Cover, bring to a boil, and then turn down the heat and simmer slowly until the vegetables and barley are tender, about 1 hour.
