cW Recipes: Antioxidant Smoothie Bowl
These recipes from our resident nutritionist nourish your body and help you glow from within.

What exactly is a “cancer-fighting” food? Well, it’s any food that promotes healthier overall cell function, which can reduce cancer cell growth. The food we eat breaks down into macronutrients and micronutrients which provide fuel for our cells. While all cells need fuel to function, certain fuels have properties that can help fight cancer.

Not only can the cooling chill of this smoothie bowl alleviate mouth pain and dryness caused by cancer treatment, it’s chock full of heart-healthy fats and complex carbohydrates. Add and subtract fruits and toppings as you see fit, and make this cancer-fighting food a daily staple.
