Slow Cooker Garlic Shrimp and Spinach

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in women. Eating a healthy diet before, during or after a journey with breast cancer is important to keep your body strong, avoid cancer-causing foods and speed your recovery.

A clean diet from childhood through adulthood can help prevent developing certain types of breast cancer. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, protein, lean meats and whole grains is essential to decreasing the chance of cancer.

This dish is a great recipe to include in your anti-cancer diet plan. The high levels of carotenoids (vitamin A) from the spinach, anti-inflammatory properties from the shrimp and high fiber intake from your chosen whole grain can all help prevent the risk of breast cancer.
