October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To mark the moment and support this campaign, explore pink-themed recipes and health-conscious choices that could benefit individuals in treatment.
Why "Pink October?"
“Pink October” arose in the United States of America in the 90’s to honour women with breast cancer and raise awareness for the prevention of this disease. All over the world, people adopted a pink ribbon as the symbol of this movement.
Maintaining a well-balanced diet, staying hydrated, and managing the side effects of cancer treatments all require making adjustments to eating habits. Here are some practical suggestions:
● Stay well-hydrated by sipping fluids throughout the day in small quantities.
● Opt for uncomplicated soups like carrot, pumpkin, turnip, and zucchini.
● Opt for frequent, small meals.
● Steer clear of deep-fried foods, overly fatty, sugary, or salty dishes, and strong-smelling condiments.
● Favour boiled, grilled, steamed, or roasted meals, and/or simple stews without elaborate sauces.
