Eat your beans…and split peas. Women who consume high fiber foods are less likely to develop breast cancer.

  • A high fiber diet can help you lose weight, which can reduce your risk for breast cancer.
  • Fiber reduces your risk of heart disease by lowering your cholesterol.
  • Aim for 25-35 grams daily. One cup of split peas contains 16 grams!
