3 New and Unusual Cancer-Fighters

  • Carrot & Cauliflower Pickle — This Indian recipe uses mustard powder plus a bunch of other spices to pickle healthy vegetables. Be sure to use a heart-healthy oil like olive or canola when pickling.
  • British Beer Mustard — Whole brown mustard seeds and mustard powder go into this make-it-yourself mustard. Sounds delicious for sandwiches or for dipping fat pretzels.
  • Horseradish Cole Slaw — This recipe calls for horseradish and mustard. Add all the cabbage that goes into this dish, and you’ve got both AITC and antioxidants in this side dish.
  • Horseradish Mashed Potatoes — We make garlic mashed potatoes all the time; why not horseradish mashed potatoes?
  • Wasabi Pea Gnocchi — A few of the reviewers suggested adding more wasabi that indicated to this dish of potato gnocchi with an Asian flare.
  • Wasabi Popcorn — Prepared wasabi takes the flavor of regular popcorn up several notches.

When I first heard about wasabi, I hated it. Turns out wasabi served at Japanese restaurants in America is not wasabi, but horseradish, coloring or peas, whatever. However, you can buy pure wasabi powder in jars. Look at the label for 100% though. I add it every day to stir fry and love the zest it adds.

PS: ginger seems to be good too, but you'll have to eat a lot of it, about 8 cm a day, fresh... I'm sorry, even if I love ginger, I don't want all my food taste to ginger all day long.
I suppose if I have to die, I will. No matter what I'm eating ;-)

There was a famous doctor in France (Servan-Schreiber) who got cancer a few years ago, he begann to change his food habits, telling this und that is good against cancer, he ate lots of it and wrote books about all that, he went better, and suddenly the cancer came back and he died although his food was fighting cancer...
And I knew a woman eating cheap crap, she went very old (still having all her teeths by the way!), she died 89.
So please, some more studies, we're still not fed up with them ;-)
Who paid that one?

Really strange, given that the four condiments that I despise the most are mustard, horseradish, wasabi, and cilantro. Wow. I can't even stand them in tiny amounts. They should put it into capsules.

How can I find food like these in my local food stores?
I will give it a try.

Azaima, don't you know that 'tasty' and 'healthy' foods are mutually exclusive?
