Knowledge is Power When it Comes to a Healthy Diet


There is a great deal of awareness out there in this country regarding diseases, illnesses, and cures that many individuals and companies are working hard to find. As everyone knows, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. However, what many do not know, is that changing a diet and strengthening a body can not only help reduce the risk of breast cancer, but other diseases, as well.


When it comes to celiac disease, you are speaking about one of the most difficult to identify. And it is only with a gluten-free diet that a person with celiac disease can maintain good health. However, gluten-free foods can be utilized in a variety of ways. The celiac sufferer must have a diet centered in gluten-free foods in order to stop any harm from coming to them. These gluten-free foods, such as the innovative, amazingly delicious line of ‘Pouch 2 Plate’ meals that Storehouse Foods provides, are necessary to the celiac world.


But people need to go that one step further. Changing a diet for those who are not suffering from celiac disease should be considered. When it comes to breast cancer, this is a disease that doesn’t discriminate; it claims hundreds of thousands of lives a year.


Just as it is with celiac disease, the statistics and data remain unknown to most when it comes to breast cancer. Thus, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., offers more information. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer; it is the second leading cause of death among women; over 220,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer, with more than 40,000 dying in the next year. And even though breast cancer is a rare occurrence in men, approximately 2,100 will be diagnosed each year, with over 400 passing away.


Education is the same when it comes to diseases that doctors are still trying to find a cure for. Whether it be breast cancer or celiac disease or a myriad of others – knowledge is power for the health and welfare of the population.


Physical activity is a must; being healthy and eating  fruits and vegetables help the system. But there are also some gluten-free foods that may help women strengthen their bodies when it comes to fighting breast cancer; the same foods that are a part of the celiac diet.


For those who are unaware, broccoli contains a compound (sulforaphane), that has been known to reduce the number of breast cancer stem cells when tested on mice. (*University of Michigan). And even though eating broccoli alone may not deliver enough of this compound, eating raw or semi-steamed broccoli is definitely something that should be on everyone’s diet – not just the person suffering from celiac disease.


In addition, salmon is superrich in omega-3 fats. It has become a worldwide fact that fish oil can reduce the inflammation that can contribute to breast cancer. And studies recommend that adding approximately eight ounces of oily fish to a diet – whether it be salmon, tuna, or sardines – will help your body stay healthier.


When cooking, olive oil needs to be used, considering how high it is in antioxidants; this may help to suppress the growth of malignant cells.


Parsley is a well-known and well-liked herb that has proven to inhibit cancer-cell growth, and increase resistance to cancerous tumor development. And, yes, even though there has always been a back-and-forth war with this subject, coffee does provide antioxidants that may protect cells from damage that can lead to cancer.


In addition, always keep those vegetables and fruits handy; plums and peaches, beans, walnuts and more, help save lives.


Broccoli-Cheddar-Soup-LrgJust as Storehouse Foods provides the celiac market with gluten-free foods that are perfect for people on-the-go,’ they also want everyone to heed helpful advice. The food we choose to put into our bodies is absolutely important. We all need – no matter who we are or what we may suffer from – the physical and mental strength to meet any challenge that comes our way.


In other words, take great care of yourself so that you can live a long and healthy life!
