These vibrant Zucchini wraps are full of antioxidants, nutrients, fiber and even protein!
Zucchini has high vitamin C and protein content, and is a fiber-rich food which can help to alleviate cancer conditions by removing cancer-causing toxins from cells in the colon.
Carrots contain vitamin A and a host of other phytonutrients that can support healthy skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging. Falcarinol is a natural fatty alcohol found in carrots that may reduce the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer. Carrots are one of the only common sources of this compound.
Delicious, fresh cucumbers are known to contain lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol. These three lignans have a strong history of research in connection with reduced risk of several cancer types, including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and prostate cancer.
