By: Dawn Lange, Co Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.

Each week we share delicious, and sometimes simple recipes of select foods that are good in the prevention of breast cancer. Summer wraps are popular, healthy and easy to make. We chose Romaine Lettuce wraps because the dark green leaves provide more beta carotene and vitamin C than paler leaves, and provide bioflavonoids for protection against cancer specifically prostrate and uterus cancer. Bioflavonoids may block the onset of new tumors, inhibit growth and spread of existing tumors, and thought to protect eyesight.
