Yikes! SO many things to keep track of! I’m going nuts! And I don’t know whether to go raw nuts or cooked nuts!

Fresh fruits are good for fighting cancer, because they are raw and have all kinds of nutrients. But wait! They feed cancer cells because they have natural sugar.

Strawberries in particular are good for fighting cancer, because they are raw and have antioxidants in addition to vitamins. But wait! They not only have natural sugar, which cancer cells live on, but they also are a goitrogen – one of the fruits/veggies that impede normal thyroid function.

Broccoli is essential for fighting cancer. High-end supplement companies make broccoli supplements for this very reason. But wait! Don’t eat broccoli raw, because it also is a goitrogen. Cook it, because cooking deactivates the thingamadookee that makes goitrogens impede normal thyroid function.

Raw foods rock, but cooking tomatoes releases an essential nutrient you can’t get from raw tomatoes.

Vegan eating avoids toxins, but raw dairy and pasture-raised meats provide essential nutrients and enzymes that one specifically needs to fight cancer.

Wild caught Alaskan salmon is essential for Omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight cancer. But wait! Fish has mercury toxins!

As my Eastern European Jewish counterparts would say, OY!

What to eat raw? What to juice? What to cook? Go vegan? Eat meat? Fish? Eggs? Dairy?

I’m so confused and exhausted from running around doing the right thing. Wait! Stress encourages the growth of cancer! Now I’m stressed that I’m stressed. Sigh.

I wish I didn’t have to think so much about my food. I mean, I’m eons away from pigging out on ice cream and spicy curly fries. Seriously. Do I really have to put this much thought into whether to eat organic plain yogurt with fresh organic mixed berries or to opt for a spinach salad instead? >Thunk to head< I forgot. Spinach is a goitrogen. So yogurt it is.
