  • Try a meatless barbeque! Research shows that less cancer causing compounds form when meatless foods (plants) are charred/burned when grilling. 
  • Grill vegetables, fruit or tofu. Barbeque fruit kabobs for dessert or grill zucchini for a salad.
  • The best diet for cancer patients and survivors is one that is focused on mostly plant-based foods. This includes vegetables, fruit, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
