In the Radical Remission 'changing your diet' chapter, Dr. Turner tells us that the radical remission survivors reduced or eliminated sweets, meat, dairy and wheat.
In addition, half of their plate (of every meal) was made out of vegetables or fruit.
Are you familiar with purple sweet potatoes?
These gorgeous sweet potatoes (in my opinion they are not sweet at all) are very rich in antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation and boost your immune system.
I bake them in the oven and then add olive oil, thyme & rosemary.
Yesterday, at my Friday night family dinner, I served these beauties.
When I put them on the table, my mom, dad and sister, all mentioned that these beautiful purple sweet potatoes were shown on the Netflix documentary: 'Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones'.
I was happy that they remembered this. These Purple Sweet Potatoes were mentioned in the Okinawa chapter of this great documentary. This documentary explores the 5 blue zones, studied by Dan Buettner for 20 years. He takes the viewers on his journey in which centenarians share what they think is their secret to living to 100.
I really recommend watching this, as it has so many similarities to Dr. Turner's research in the Radical Remission books.
