This is a groundbreaking new diet for the overweight breast cancer patient or anyone at risk for the disease, featuring 150 high-nutrient, plant- and olive oil- based recipes, proven effective to help women avoid weight gain healthily. "The Pink Ribbon Diet" features 150 recipes which naturally emphasise foods with nutrients considered to lower risk and foods that improve biomarkers, such as olive oil, vegetables, and certain starches, and omit those foods linked to increased risks. At its core it is the Mediterranean diet, and while not strictly a vegetarian cookbook, readers are encouraged to make protein choices other than meat. Most of the dinner recipes take less than 20 minutes to prepare and have simple steps that even a novice cook can easily master. Recipes include well defined portion sizes as well as suggested substitutions. For those needing more guidance, there are also weekly meal plans. This is not just a collection of recipes, it is a diet plan designed specifically for the overweight breast cancer patient or anyone concerned about developing the disease.
