Super-Nutritious Broccoli Salad with Apples and Cranberries

Broccoli contains some extraordinary compounds that have been shown to reduce DNA mutation, eliminate carcinogenic toxins, induce apoptosis in cancerous cells, help prevent the development of benign tumors into malignant tumors, and help prevent the spread of cancer from one organ to another. The cancer-fighting potential of raw broccoli—which this recipe calls for—appears to be particularly high: according to one study, cooking may destroy as much as 90% of sulforaphane—the key anti-cancer substance in broccoli. Besides broccoli, this salad boasts a number of other anti-cancer foods, including cranberries (rich in ellagic acid), sunflower seeds (packed with antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium), and apples and red onions (excellent dietary sources of quercetin).

Arugula, Avocado and Tomato Salad

While low in calories, arugula – also known as rocket – is loaded with health promoting phytochemicals. It is a particularly good source of glucosinolates which turn into isothiocyanates by the enzyme myrosinase when you chew arugula. Isothiocyanates are known to neutralize carcinogens and to inhibit cancer cell proliferation. Also the tomatoes and avocados in this salad possess anti-cancer and antioxidant properties.

Beet and Carrot Salad with Ginger

This recipe pairs beets with carrots to create a potent weapon for fighting stomach cancer. Several studies have found betacyanin, a phytochemical responsible for beets' intense purple color, to be highly effective at preventing cancer while carrots contain falcarinol—a compound that has been shown to inhibit the development of cancer. The anti-cancer compounds in beets and carrots are heat-sensitive and therefore it is best to consume these powerful root vegetables raw like in this salad.
