    Because skin cancer is so prevalent in Australia (all that closeness to the hole in the ozone layer) there are clinics everywhere that do nothing but inspect skin for cancers and either cream, burn or surgically remove them. I’m not blonde or even close to it but I did play in the sun as a kid. I should get checked out.

    How can I express my gratitude for the pumpkin, pesto bruschetta?? I LOVE IT!

    The others are great too but I can just taste that bruschetta.

    I did not know it was skin cancer awareness month, but it is something that is near to my heart. My father has troubles with skin cancer, because he works outside a lot. My Mom has has troubles too, she loves gardening. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous recipes, my hubby and I are always looking for healthy meal ideas:-) You know my favorite is that gorgeous pumpkin pesto bruschetta! I am a coffee drinker, and can drink it right before bed even, LOL! Sending love and hugs, Terra

    Love the recipes and links, EA. And I didn’t know it was skin cancer awareness month. Is it world-wide? I was raised in Florida but have lived i the Scotland for nearly 25 years. I have sun damage on my chest and arms but luckily I was smart enough to keep face covered. My Dad had melanoma and my sis gets a lot of moles removed so I think I was lucky in my move north.There has tobe some compensation for tour grey, drizzly weather! My daughter is very sun sensible and doesn’t sit in the sun at all. Good girl. I could learn a lot from her.

    Every looks delicious! I’ll take two or each! I’m a brunette with middle-eastern blood and I suppose I don’t worry about this subject as my fair-skinned friends do. I still wear sunscreen and a hat, especially since I’ve always lived in sunny states: So California, Arizona, Texas & Florida. Thanks for the reminder that we all need to take care of our skin.

    This is such great information!! Really great post about something really important to all of us. I was huge lay-out-in-the-sun girl for decades, but finally really watch it now. But eating for my skin is a great way to support change too. thanks!

    I’m so glad you’re raising awareness about such an important issue! As a fair-skinned Irish lass, my family has a HUGE history of skin cancer. I’m doing my best to prevent it, and these recipes are a great help!

    This is a great post and reminder to get checked annually and to be vigilant with proactive measures. I love that one of those measures involves eating tasty food like the ones you listed here!

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me
    when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a
    comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.

    There has to be a way you are able to remove me from
    that service? Thank you!
