My daily cancer fighting super food routine.

Karla’s daily food routine:
Here is a look at what I eat in a day. All provided by either Ana or my mum Nancy. Everything is organic and fresh where available. 
I start my day with a glass of water with fresh squeezed lemon juice, Restorolax, and lemon rind chopped finely. 

Breakfast is always a smoothie. I love refreshing healthy smoothies, especially on days when I don’t feel like eating. Here is what Ana does for 2 smoothies:

  • Protein powder (as per package)
  • 2T Oatmeal 
  • Kiefer
  • 1 cup Fruits (everyday a different combination)-Banana, Pear, Blue berries, Watermelon, Mango
  • 1 cup of veggies (everyday a different combination) – Cauliflower, frozen kale, Sweet potatoes, broccoli 
  • Coconut milk

Blend chosen ingredients in blender until no chunks remain. Karla enjoys it in two parts – one in morning, one around lunch time.

At some point every day I have turmeric ginger made by my childhood friend Tori Newall. (Which I think she should sell.) 

When I feel nauseated, or just for an afternoon treat I drink my special anti nausea tea. It is made by Ana.

  • 4 thumb-sized ginger
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp Rosemary
  • 2 Tbsp Fennel
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano
  • 1 Big Stick Cinnamon Bark
  • Honey if needed

Put all ingredients into a pot and boil on stove until colour is dark brown. Let cool with all ingredients in pot until ready to drink, then strain and pour into a cup the. reheat. Can be refrigerated as well. 

For lunch I enjoy a piece of gluten free toast well done with crunchy peanut butter and sometimes a drizzle of honey. 

Each night for dinner the family sits together and enjoys organic vegetables, salad, meats and a starch. Once a week we enjoy fish. 

After dinner I sit down and enjoy a hot milk with turmeric and ginger paste. 

For treats, I try to have natural sugar treats, like honey, and avoid most dairy containing products. 

About The Author

A few months ago, I was told that my boobs are trying to kill me and being misdiagnosed for two years allowed them to recruit throughout the rest of my body by way of my spine. Before this, I knew f*ck all about cancer. Now, between sipping chemo cocktails, I want to talk about the truth of living with Stage 4 Breast Cancer with my support system and people I have met along the way to recovery.
