I'm at the lake cottage working through a rum and coke.

For dinner I had bar-b-q chicken, with a great sauce, wild rice, beans and peaches cooked on the bar-b-q in booze, and served smothered with ice cream.

I'll have a grilled cheese sandwich for my bedtime snack.

Tomorrow, I'm going to town for the papers etc. so I'll likely treat myself to a Teenburger with onion rings at A&W for lunch. For dinner we're having steak and new potatoes smothered in butter.

It may not be the diet others follow for PCa, but as my PSA stays at zero I figure it's got to be working good for the PCa --- I'm not so sure about the heart.

For me it's a lunchtime big salad with romaine hearts, soy beans, blanched brocoli florettes (can stand them raw), carrots, radishes, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. When I weaken I will throw on some crumbled blue cheese.

Remember reading in one of the cancer books, that meat like hamburger was used in a lab setting to see what effect it had on PCa in a lab setting test. This is from my memory of reading it like in 2002-2003 era. The 'dormant' PCa cells in a test tube or dish, were in effect awakened and multiplying after adding the meat to them (if someone has that exact info or link post it).
So, maybe for the high risk folks might want to think about diet factors, even though I am high risk category, but since psa has been held very reasonable (somewhat stabil), not giving up on occassional burger or such, but not eating such often and usually staying away from red meats anyway. We don't want to read about our foods, processings, additives, hormones added to cows (beef) and all that wonderful stuff, but you could. Life is full of it, choices, decisions and good and bad. Moderation is good. Please pass the artery clogging gravy. (LOL)

zufus,
i think people should consider the portion side of their food almost as much as what they eat. moderation is always a good thing. i don't eat steak often, and if it do, it is almost never in a resturant, where they will cover a steak with butter as it is being grilled, and often heavily sprinkled with salt or seasonings loaded with MSG. I grill it at home with none of the extra stuff. And the size, we Americans are use to either having or wanting everything supersized. to many men, a steak isnt a steak unless its a good 12 to 16 oz. When I have a steak its in the 6 to 8 oz range at the most, and any visible fat is removed after cooking.

instead of denying oneself of foods they love, just eat it less often and don't pig out. my wife and i stopped the other American practice of dining at "all you can eat" buffets. here in the deep south, they are among the most popular places to eat. we just don't go to those anymore. you always end up overeating, and you also have to watch people making absolute gluttons of themselves. kind of gross really.

so less is better, and better quality foods is better. i still eat what i want, just less of it, and we eat out less by choice so we can control the quality.

Also, a piece of grilled, roasted or baked salmon on top of a bed of cooked greens (I like spinich or swiss chard) is really good, and good for you>

    I haven't had a soda in years. about 3 months ago, I swore off potato chips & french fries. Testing my will power.
    Oh, and I quit smoking last November after 30 years or so. This was pre-diagnosis.
    Every little bit, I guess.

I,m with you all, it is hard to just eat the good stuff all the time. I eat a lot of fish, chicken, never was big on steaks, but do like the BBQ, tho know I hardly eat it. But gots to have the occasiaonal burger and fries, maybe once a month. Moderation is the big key and less calories overall. There was a study somewhere on eating less calories as you age helping you live longer. Thanks for the input gentlemen, Its early here still, think I'll move the body a bit and then eat something good. Aloha!!

For breafast, I make a smoothy, which consists of blueberries (maybe a cup), a banana, soy milk, and a tablespoon of soy protien ... throw it all in a blender and in 60 seonds its done. My wife liked it, so now she wants one too!

For a change, I'll add peanut butter, honey, or anything else that catches my attention and doesn't run away.

Broccoli sprouts. Has something like 20-50 times the sulforaphane of mature broccoli. On a thread awhile back, it was mentioned that Johns Hopkins tried to patent them.

Well.... Breakfast consists of Fiber One with sliced banana and skim milk, and a side of fresh organic.strawberries.
Lunch today was Sockeye salmon on 15 grain bread, broccoli rabe sauteed with about 5 cloves of garlic and a baked sweet potato.  Grapes and orange sherbert for dessert..... haven't decided on dinner yet.  Broccoli, whether it be rabe or regular is a daily staple along with as much fiber as I can get.... plain almonds roasted in the oven makes a great snack also.

Not to scare you Vam ,just passing this on. I read somewhere that skim milk was actually " worse " for PCA then 2% and whole as counterintuitive as that sounds. Soy milk really is pretty good with cereal. Takes a little getting use to but Iactually love it now. I drank skim milk for years.

Ahhhhh... figures, I thought it would be ok due to the 0 fat 0 Sat Fat content....  Looks like I'm going back to 1%.

If I remember... although I maybe mistaken... is Soy really better?? I thought I saw somewhere that the jury was still out on Soy Milk.

Ground turkey is good, but a caveat, make sure its the breast, if it doesnt, say breast there is a lot of dark meat, which is as " good " as burgers, though I will have one of those occasionally. I,m getting good ideas from this thread, thanks

We have been using curry to give vegetable dishes more flavor. Curry does not have to be hot and there are lots of variations on the market. We think that lots of flavor helps promote vegetable eating. If you have a hard time finding spices where you live, I have dealt with Penzeys Spices for over 20 years.
We also discovered broccoli slaw, bags of shredded broccoli which looks a lot like the cabbage you would buy for cole slaw. (we get ours at Trader Joe’s) Eat it raw with a dressing. We also cook chopped onions in a bit of olive oil, add in one well chopped spicy turkey sausage, a couple of coarsely chopped tomatoes and at last several handfuls of the broccoli slaw. Serve it over whole wheat pasta.
Those who like the idea of tofu might look for tempeh – also a soy product but firmer and more flavorful. Some cooks think it should be par-boiled but we don’t – just cut it into chunks and fry in a little olive oil.
