Did you know that  in March we  celebrate the National Colon Cancer Awareness month? Yep! That’s right, the Colon is such an important part of our digestive system, part of its job is to move out the residue of  our body(by this I mean the stuff that our body does not need). Keeping the Colon working at its full potential also aids in preventing Colorectal cancer which is seen more and more in industrialized countries like the USA. When the Colon cannot “pass” the garbage out, it can irritate the cells that cover its inside lining, when this happens, the possibility of damaging these cells and creating a toxic buildup can lead to dangerous polyps. Over time, some colon polyps can develop into colon cancer, which is often fatal when found in its later stages. The good news? By adding more fiber, water, Vitamin A & D (from real foods) and healthy bacteria we can help to keep it healthy. The following recipe has all of the “good stuff” to keep your Colon going so go ahead and share it with your family and friends.  At the Real Food Academy, we love to keep our community healthy!
