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.

I adore regular yellow mustard, and am thrilled that it's so nutritious.

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 ;-)
