150ml cranberry juice
handful of ice
1 lime wedge
chilled non-alcoholic prosecco to top up
Drinking alcohol increases the risk of breast cancer in women, and heavy drinking increases the risk in men. So, our pink mocktail is a great alternative to an alcoholic cocktail.
For the sides
Pinch of salt
1 –2 tablespoons of olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
Two handfuls of organic baby/ new potatoes
A bundle of asparagus
1 tsp of mixed dried herbs
For the sea bass
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp of mixed dried herbs
2 x sea bass fillets
Sea bass is one of the lean sea fish that is a perfect choice for people who want to lose weight. It also contains high-quality and easily digestible protein, making it a great alternative to red or processed meat. There is evidence that processed meat may slightly increase breast cancer risk. Sea bass also contains important omega-3 fatty acids.
250g whole meal plain flour, plus extra for dusting
125g butter, chilled and diced, plus extra for the tart tin
1 medium egg
1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped (optional)
100g low-sugar jam, fruit curd or marmalade of your choice
1 tbsp of water
Wholemeal flour has a higher fibre content than white flour. More and more studies show that a diet high in fibre is associated with a decreased breast cancer risk.
