Recipe Notes

Why You’ll Love It:

1. Barley: A fantastic source of fiber and nutrients. Barley has a number of anti-cancer biological activities, including angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitory activity, tyrosinase inhibitory activity, antioxidant ability, and xanthin oxidase inhibitory activity.

2. Cauliflower: High in vitamins and antioxidants. It is a source of several compounds with demonstrated cancer fighting properties shown to reduce the risk of bladder, colorectal, prostate and cervical cancer.

3. Chickpeas & Almonds: Provide protein and healthy fats. A daily intake of 28g of nuts (about 23 almonds) has also been associated with a 21% reduction in the rate of cancer mortality.
