On February 4, 2015 (World Cancer Day), I launched a year-long initiative to eat at least five servings of produce every day in honor of my dad who lost his battle against pancreatic cancer on February 4, 1988.
I am inspired to do so because the National Cancer Institute and other experts suggest that people who eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day are less likely to develop cancer.
Will you keep me accountable by subscribing to this blog? It can be a daily reminder to you to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Please spread the word to family and friends in honor of someone you know who is fighting cancer or a survivor. Or in memory of someone you have lost to the disease. This simple message – to eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day – can have a powerful impact on the lives of those around you.
p.s. I am nearing completion of my 700-hour nutrition consultant training program with Bauman College and one of the key lessons learned is that eating plenty of produce can help prevent most disease and lead to optimal health.
