- Make sure that you do not go to the supermarket only for other products:
Increase the amounts of fruits and vegetables you buy. This is a good way to enrich your diet or your woman’s diet. If you are fond of a special fruit or vegetable such as strawberries or carrots, do not focus on buying only those two, but make sure you buy different and variety of fruits and vegetables.

Once you prepare the meal, make sure that you add different types of fruits and vegetables. That is a good way to keep yourself healthy. This does not mean that you have to completely eliminate the animals foods, but only to decrease the amounts of them in your breast cancer diet.
- One of the most important vegetable (or fruits as many consider it); Tomatoes:
Make sure that you eat different and several dishes of tomatoes. This one is considered one of the most effective product or foods to eat during any kind of diet. It is so rich of ingredients, especially vitamins, which boost your immunity and your body health.
- Do not juice fruits, but eat them:
Who can believe that orange juice was found not so healthy? That proves how fruit juices are not the same as the fruits themselves. People found the fruit juices unhealthier than fruits. That is why it is better that you make your diet rich of fruits instead of their juices.
- There are plenty of good ingredients to add to your fruit-vegetable diet:
Beside the fruits and vegetables, you can add other nutritious herbs, ingredients and seeds. Those are found to be also importantly healthy. Spinach, stews, scallions, lettuce, cabbage, and so on; those are what we are talking about in this part.

- When you eat fruits and vegetables, do not make always salads:
Once you make a salad, you might love to add some dressing to it. That is what we are talking about here. You have to limit the amount of that dressing you use for the salad.
- Avoid oil and butter during cooking:
When it comes to fry or cook any kind of foods, people tend to use the oil or butter to do that. Moreover, wine was found also a common way to cook. Those are better to avoid them, and you can use instead of them the bullion or even the broth. Those can be more effective and healthier.
- Decrease the amounts of butter and cheese:
People who are known to have a high level of the fats intake, are those who include too much of butter and cheese in their diets. We all know that those kinds of the foods are extremely high in fat level. That is why, we recommend avoid them during the breast cancer diet or even any other kind of diets.
- Pick up the foods that you usually eat and are high in the level of fats and remove them:
There are numerous foods with high level of fats, such as meat, fish, salt, poultry…etc. those foods are better to avoid them and remove them from your diet, or at least decrease the amounts of them intake.
The third and final thing to know is; do not forget to organize the proteins, and add the top healthiest foods to your diet. We said that you have to eat vegetables and to avoid the fats, but that does not mean you have to eat no proteins, in contrast, you have to eat plenty of proteins and increase the level of it intake. That is another important thing to know. Besides, you can add some important healthy choices to your diet. If you want to pick up the best and most effective choices of those, I recommend you to see a doctor or your healthcare provider. It is a very good way to guarantee that you eat only the healthy diet.
As for the proteins, you may include in your breast cancer diet several foods that are high in proteins with low amounts of fats and calories. Even that there are some foods that cannot be separated from their level of fats. That is why it is better to eat them with rules. Those foods are such as eggs, fish, meat, chicken…etc. Besides, you can use different and healthy ways to cook them to increase the level of unhealthy nutrients such as boiling the eggs.
