Exciting Food for Breast Cancer Survivors
As a breast cancer survivor I like to eat organic foods, be selective with oils, not consume milk products and where possible maintain a vegan diet.
Finally I have found a cafe where I can relax and select anything on the menu knowing all choices are healthy eating not just for breast cancer survivors but for all.
Three Worlds Organic Cafe at Mermaid Beach not only has organic food but a generous community garden for extra freshness.
My sister and her partner stayed with me last week and below are the wonderful dishes we each enjoyed.
My main selection was the Pakora Stack and made with besan flour and lots of Indian spices served with salad from Threeworld's Garden and topped with raw mango chutney. The salad dressing was made with Udo Oil a certified organic blends of unrefined seed oils that delivers unprocessed Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.
My sister selected Falafels served with baby spinach, French lentil toboullie, topped with activated raw nut cream and a raw salsa.
Her partner selected Nachos made with corn chips layered with nut cream and beans.
He is far from a converted vegetarian yet really enjoyed his tasty meal served on papaya leaves from the community garden.
The waitress told us papaya is very good for cancer.
My sister and I tasted the leaves but her partner refrained.
And for desserts we were all very naughty but all desserts were gluten free, made from activated nuts, seeds and inter alia Irish Moss and most were RAW or rawish and served with chocolate, vanilla and coconut vegan icecream.
My sister and I then finished with a cup of delicious `tummy tea' with an edge of liquorice, lemon grass and fennel, while we agreed to chase a coffee latte for my sister's partner downtown as soon as we had finished. Can't win them all.
