In the fifth episode of our video series, inspired by the Cancer + Wellness Program, Mick Von Doxatater offers advice on how to eat a more colorful diet and why it matters: “Your immune system and your body will thank you.”
Mick says “variety is the key word here. Between 5 and 10 colors is what we should be eating daily.”
In this brief video, Mick offers easy-to-follow, actionable recommendations on how to build a better smoothie, including smoothie staples and how to make it easier to digest certain foods, like hearty greens.
He also offers tips on prepping healthy diet super-stars, like beets and bok choy (hint: he swears by a steamer).
This video also offers healthy eating tips for cancer patients who might be coping with limited appetite and other dietary concerns.
Cancer + Wellness is an innovative pilot program fusing gentle exercise with nutritional education. It’s funded through Mary Free Bed and a grant from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
