3 Great Romaine Lettuce Summer Wrap Recipes

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.

Quinoa Burgers

Quinoa Burger Recipe For Breast CancerBy Diana Ross, E-RYT 500 Co-Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga

There are so many benefits to adding Quinoa to your diet. The first big benefit is Quinoa is a high quality protein with nine essential amino acids. It has more protein than rice (7.5 percent), millet (9.9 percent) or wheat (14 percent). Great source of riboflavin which improves the energy metabolism within the brain and muscle cells. The story told is that the Inca warriors had more stamina and a quicker recovery time by eating quinoa seeds, making it a truly ancient powerfood. For those of us counting our calories, quinoa is not fattening! Only 172 calories per 1/4 cup dry (24 of the calories from protein and only 12 from sugars, the rest are complex carbohydrates, fiber and healthy fats). Recently there has been a lot of buzz about Gluten-free so since it is not related to wheat, or even a grain, it is gluten-free. Although it is not strongly alkaline-forming, it is comparable to wild rice, amaranth, and sprouted grains. It is a complex carbohydrate with a low glycemic index, so it won’t spike your blood sugar. Now we combine anti-cancer ingredients and this a power house of health. Add guacamole on the side and you will be so satisfied.
