Diet is one of the most important lifestyle factors and has been estimated to account for up to 80% of cancers. A right combination of food, appropriate amounts and proper cooking will contribute to preventing diseases including cancer.

Here are healthy foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner to reduce your risk of cancer:


Scrambled eggs with vegetables like tomatoes, carrots or bell peppers are great for breakfast. You can add a little chopped greens and eat desserts with grapefruit. In addition, oats combined with fresh fruits and nuts such as walnuts and almonds are also a healthy breakfast menu to reduce the risk of cancer.

 To increase the absorption of carotenoid compounds in green vegetables, add a spoonful of olive oil or finely chopped cheese.

Good eating habits help prevent cancer.


Grilled fish and peanuts, along with vegetables like cabbage, onions and fruits like oranges or watermelon, are healthy foods for lunch. Choose purple cabbage because they contain a variety of phytonutrients and are a source of anthocyanins.


Lentil soup with onions, celery, carrots, tomatoes, greens, black pepper and a bowl of fruit like apples or oranges is a great suggestion for dinner.

 For snack, combine walnuts and plums, pears and peanut butter, cucumbers and salmon, or unsweetened yogurt and berries.


Tea or coffee is known to have anti-cancer properties because of its high content of antioxidants. However, you should not add sugar or fresh cream. In addition, green tea is also a healthy drink that helps reduce the risk of cancer.
