Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a leader in the plant-based nutrition movement. From Dr. Furman’s website:”G-BOMBS” is an acronym that you can use to remember the best anti-cancer, health-promoting foods on the planet. These are the foods that you should eat every day, making up a significant proportion of your diet. They are extremely effective at preventing chronic disease, including cancer and promoting health and longevity.
G = greens
B = beans
O = onions
M = mushrooms
B = berries
S = seeds
I would add cruciferous vegetables to this list… but that would alter the lovely acronym.
Here is a super delicious G-BOMBS salad + cruciferous vegetable.
Serves 1 as a large meal or 4-6 as a side dish
4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce (G=greens)
1 cup shredded white or purple cabbage (cruciferous vegetable)
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (M=mushrooms)
1/4 cup blueberries (B=blueberries)
1/4 cup sliced red onion (O=onions)
1/2 red bell pepper thinly sliced
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 cup cooked or canned navy beans, drained (B=beans)
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds (S=seeds)
CREAMY FLAX & WALNUT DRESSING
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon dijon mustard

2 tablespoons walnut pieces
Blend in blender for about a minute until smooth and creamy. Drizzle about 2 tablespoons over your salad, then toss it an enjoy.
