Zucchini has a good amount of potassium folate, vitamin A, and the antioxidant vitamin C. These nutrients may help to protect cells from the harmful chemicals that can lead to colon cancer.

Peas are little powerhouses of nutrition. Green peas are a very good source of vitamin K, manganese, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus and folate.

Adding spinach to this recipe gives a knock out punch to cancer. Researchers have found that a carotenoid found in spinach, neoxanthin, kills off prostate cancer cells. The additional health benefits of consuming spinach include improving blood glucose control in diabetics, lowering the risk of cancer, lowering blood pressure, improving bone health, and lowering the risk of developing asthma.
