Wholemeal flour has a higher fibre content than regular white flour. More and more studies are showing that a diet high in fibre is associated with a decreased breast cancer risk.
Spinach leaves are rich in carotenoids such as lutein and β-carotene. Lycopene is the major carotenoid in tomatoes. Carotenoids are substances found in fruit and vegetables that are responsible for their bright red, yellow, orange and purple colours. Carotenoids act as a type of antioxidant for humans and have also been linked with a reduced breast cancer risk, especially when you eat lots of them!
