Every year there is a big campaign in England titled ‘Stand up to Cancer’. One normal day on the couch, as me and my husband were watching various entertainment TV programs which ‘stood up to cancer’ by accepting donations, we thought to ourselves ‘What about if we took it literally?’ On the 16th December, tomorrow, at Larnaca (Cyprus) seafront, my husband Ryan will literally stand up to cancer, in order to raise awareness for PREVENTION of cancer. Both of us believe that prevention and preventative medicine/nutrition are extremely powerful tools and under-rated. Tools which we can have access to every time we take a bite; tools which we can have access to every time we decide to sit down and watch pointless telly instead of moving; tools we have access to each time we could have done something for our soul and instead we go scrolling aimlessly on Facebook.
Through his blog and this one, we wanted to make an event which stands out (pun intended) and will get people thinking whether there are little changes they can make to their lifestyle. Little changes which can eventually lead to a significant protection from cancer (amongst other diseases too!). This blog was initially created to show people how you can cook/bake/prepare in a way that is PROTECTIVE to your body, in a way where each bite nourishes you and does not feed disease. So Its-a-PBL is supporting Ryan tomorrow, joining in the 24hour fast and the non-sleep, with the utmost support, belief and pride.
On that note, welcome to Its-a-plantbasedlife (if you’ve not been here before!) and keep scrolling for recipes which are full of antioxidants, vitamins & minerals while being delicious! Here’s only one of our older recipes for you to make if you’ve been sensitized by the event, or are curious as to what a preventative/protective meal tastes like..!
