A great brunch dish and remember avocados are rich in antioxidants. Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant studied for its part in fighting cancer. Garlic has “immune-enhancing allium compounds (dialyl sultides) that appear to increase the activity of immune cells that fight cancer and indirectly help break down cancer causing substances.” Adapted from Chef Eric Ripert
