In brief: Nothing really

No diet is associated with ovarian cancer.
However, it is always good to have a healthy-well balanced diet. Cut down carbohydrates, red meat intake- especially processed red meat. Avoid alcohol and tobacco/cigarette. Increase more vegetable, fruits, fibres and exercise regularly.

In brief: No.

Unfortunately, short of having your ovaries removed (prophylactic oophorectomy), preventing ovarian cancer is difficult.
Some risk factors include family history (having a genetic mutation called brca), never having children, and exposure to estrogen therapy. Thus, having children and avoiding estrogen will help decrease your risk. Diet is not a risk factor.
