Broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, turnips and wasabi. And and colorful vegetables such as spinach, kale, mustard greens, broccoli, tomatoes and carrots are particularly encouraged as they contain high levels of antioxidants. If you have ovarian cancer, or are at risk, 2. 5 cups -- of vegetables and fruits daily for best results. Whole grains are nutritious carbohydrate options that provide an array of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, such as antioxidants and dietary fiber. Whole grains also provide phytochemicals, which are plant-based nutrients known for their high content of helpful nutrients. Phytochemicals are associated with reduced ovarian cancer risk. Seek a variety of whole grains such as oats, barley, spelt, rye, brown rice and whole wheat, to reap broadest dietary benefits. Replace enriched grains, such as white flour and sugary cereals and desserts, with whole grain foods most often, as processed grains provide little nutritional value and are not correlated with cancer prevention.
