Listen Up And Grab Some Vegan Anti-Carcinogens

According to the CDC & the WHO, cancer is one of the top ten leading causes of mortality in not only the United States but also worldwide.

It is essential to provide ourselves with the best preventative measures.

Any disruption in our DNA could lead to a certain disorder, which thereby would produce an anomaly within our body. Anti-carcinogens work together with anti-oxidants to help combat any oxidative stress that could potentially break our DNA. This is because we need both anti-oxidants and anti-carcinogens to help alleviate destructive stress. Although some anti-oxidants are neglected as also being seen as anti-carcinogens, keep in mind that anti-oxidants are needed to help prevent angiogenesis.

Here's a list of 10 simple ingredients one could incorporate into their daily meals:

Green Tea

The purest form of green tea is matcha powder where it then has versatile cooking properties. Regardless, regular green tea may be consumed as a drink in the morning or the evening (decaf).

This spice gives a very unique taste and if used carefully it can be added to any dessert for a bit of zing!


Cinnamon goes great with your morning coffee or tea. Cooking with cinnamon sticks is always fun too.


With garlic, you can enhance any dish.


This is a wonderful herb and there are many types if you would like to look into the different strains. Some are pretty sweet and can be put it any drink, some have a bit more spice and go great with any dish!

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
