CAPE CORAL, Fla. — September is prostate cancer awareness month.

The prostate cancer foundation says 30-percent of cancers are preventable through lifestyle changes, including eating better. Each day on Fox 4, we'll profile a superfood you can incorporate into your diet. The challenge is called the "Eat It To Beat It."

Today's superfood is green peas.

Green peas have phenolic compounds and are high in fiber, both of which support the growth of good bacteria in your gut.

They are also in the legumes family, which has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Try some sauteed in a pan with olive oil, onion, or minced garlic. Or add them to your pasta dish.
