Hold on a second, is that a strawberry smoothie sitting amongst my cookbooks… what happened to my COFFEE?!
Still getting used to the idea but yes, I really am changing my shopping list. Why? Well, after watching Dr William Li’s anti-angiogensis lecture on TED http://www.ted.com/talks/william_li.html, and speaking to people who have done a lot of research on the subject, I have decided to change my wicked ways… or at least adapt them somewhat!
I’m up to the challenge of eating healthy for a change. My immune system is calling for it. Getting flu twice this winter (and losing my voice on top of it) wasn’t fun. Not only that but hey, check out the first and last items on the list… surely these guys know what they are talking about?!
Strawberries Blackberries Raspberries Blueberries Cherries Red Grapes Oranges Grapefruit Lemons Apples Pineapple Parsley Garlic Tomatoes Artichokes Pumpkin Bok Choy Kale Soy Beans Ginsing Maitake Mushroom Sea Cucumber Lavender Turmeric Nutmeg Green Tea Red Wine Olive Oil Grape Seed Oil Licorice Dark Chocolate
Tuna was originally on the list but I’ve removed it from my shopping list. I wish Dr Li had done the same – imagine the impact on the already overfished/vanishing creatures of the sea when everybody starts eating more tuna after heeding his advice.
Anyhow, his work is inspiring and offers valid hope for people with diseases like cancer. As he said though, prevention is better than cure.
Let’s all drink to that!
