Dr. Weil Anti-Cancer Puttanesca Pasta with Tuna
Inflammatory foods are processed foods, sugars, milk and nightshade vegetables in many cases. Other foods to avoid are the whites (white bread, white rice and white flour). An anti-inflammatory diet is almost the same as a mucusless diet. You should limit the fat and enjoy fresh vegetables and fruits. Rid yourself of inflammation and you will be preventing many diseases.

Puttanesca Pasta with Tuna - Anti-Cancer?
I was sent an email alert today from Dr. Oz and saw an interesting recipe from Dr. Weil. I just love, love Dr. Weil and although some find him controversial, I live his wholesome and natural concepts of healing. Of course no one is perfect. So I saw his Puttanesca Pasta with Tuna and I thought all yummy that looks and of course I knew I could do better than the one he wrote.
So the first recipe is his recipe with tuna, capers and olives and the second recipe is my recipe which is much, much better. My concern with tuna or any seafood is the radiation poisoning you may be absorbing. As you may know all fish and all waters all over the world are contaminated and let's not forget the mercury content. Although his recipe says to look for a low mercury tuna, tell me Dr. Weil where is that?
In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, olive oil, red pepper flakes, capers, olives, garlic and basil. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Add the tuna to the mix. Cook the pasta in rapidly boiling water until al dente. Drain well. Toss the hot pasta with the tomato mixture. Add the grated Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Remarks: First I did not like the tuna taste with the pasta. I used whole wheat spaghetti as white pasta is very unhealthy. Now he claims this is an anti-cancer recipe but white pasta is not on any cancer diet. I would further say that this is a heart healthy diet recipe and an anti-stroke recipe. The news today is that tomatoes prevent strokes and are good to heal anyone with strokes. So here is my version of this less than perfect recipe.
Hint: With the left over tomato sauce, I made a small individual margarita pizza and topped it only with some mixed cheeses. It was very, very delicious.
