Eat More Veggies!

We try to eat mushrooms as often as possible.  Today we lightly sauteed them with red onion and bell peppers (nothing added).  Mushrooms are one of those foods to have in your immune strengthening arsenal.
Some mushrooms are anti-inflammatory, stimulate the immune system, prevent DNA damage, slow cancer cell growth, cause programmed cancer cell death, and inhibit angiogenesis. Angiogeneiss is the promotion of new blood vessel growth from existing blood vessels.  These blood vessels feed cancer and tumor growth and also fat cells. In addition to these properties, mushrooms also contain aromatase inhibitors – compounds that can block the production of estrogen. Which is good news for inhibiting some hormone cancers.
Studies show that onions halt the development of some cancers. They are loaded with antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory effects.
Colorful vegetables like bell peppers are high on the nutrient density list and they are also a high water content food.
With all of these benefits shouldn't you be eating more vegetables today?
