Can eating all-natural superfoods really cure cancer?
After being diagnosed with breast cancer twice in one year, Gale Compton began to re-evaluate her unhealthy lifestyle. Compton’s successful fight against cancer motivated her to help others achieve healthier lifestyles. With the help of her friend, Tiffany McCauley, Gale created SkinnyMs.com, a health-oriented online community, which has gained thousands of loyal fans who seek inspiration and information for making their home kitchens healthier. The demand of their community has prompted their second major cookbook, Skinny Ms. Superfoods.
Superfoods go above and beyond what their nutritional content provides in health benefits because of their high concentration in nutrients. They fight against many chronic illnesses, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer.
Compton and McCauley’s Skinny Ms. Philosophy is to eat foods as close as possible to their natural state, which Gale contributes to her successful fight against cancer.
Skinny Ms. Superfoods contains nearly 200 recipes, including smoothies, snacks, breakfasts and even pizzas and desserts, all of which pack a powerful nutritional punch.
From their zesty Sun-Dried Tomato and Artichoke Spread, a great source of lycopene, which is widely believed to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, to meaty and savory Steak Fajita Sandwiches, which are full of protein and a wealth of vitamins and minerals, to Chocolate Peanut Butter Almond Bars, low in cholesterol and sodium, and loaded with protein, antioxidants and fiber.
With this cookbook, your family will find an abundance of nutritious and delicious recipes, and they won’t even realize they’re eating healthy.
McCauley and Compton include insightful information all about superfoods and their significant nutritional benefits. They even provide an extensive chart detailing the suggested health benefits of specific superfoods so readers will know just exactly what they’re getting out of what they’re eating.
Skinny Ms. Superfoods is the sequel to the successful Skinny Ms. Slow Cooker, published by Quail Ridge Press (Brandon, Miss.). Both books are available at quailridge.com, amazon.com, anywhere books are sold, or by calling 1-800-343-1583.
