“Eating well is the only way,” insists Janet Gaffney on the topic of staying healthy. This devoted cooking teacher in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, is also a six-year survivor of breast cancer. “When tragedy strikes, you really start to evaluate your health and what you can do to change it,” says Janet.
One of her secrets to conquering cancer: Eat fresh, local, and organic--including lots of colorful, antioxidant-rich produce. “As I was going through treatment, I couldn’t think of eating another vegetable that might possibly be polluted with pesticides,” Janet says. She offers advice to any of us wanting to eat smarter.
Try her sensational recipes. She uses them in her cooking classes, a program called The Art of Cooking sponsored by her local Whole Foods Market. She says, “If I can help one person prevent cancer, then I’ve done my job.” Janet says these recipes helped her get healthy, and we think you’ll like them too.
