Yep, you read that correctly. Broccoli may have been a veggie you pushed around your plate or insisted it be to dipped in ranch dressing to get this veggie down. Well, do I have good news for you!
Broccoli is easily in a top tier of foods that we should try to eat regularly. Like most dark green vegetables, broccoli is packed with fiber, iron, protein, calcium, folate, chromium, carbohydrates, vitamin A and vitamin C. The American Cancer Society states that broccoli contains certain chemicals, called phytochemicals, that may reduce the risk of colorectal or other cancers. This green veggie also has anti-aging properties, detoxifies, aides digestion, control diabetes, improve immunity, protect against UV damage, reduce the risk of heart-disease and aides in weight loss.
This amazing gem of a vegetable is also found in numerous cooked recipes, but unfortunately, they often include massive amounts of cream, dressing, carbohydrate, etc. For a much healthier way to get all the health benefits of broccoli, try juicing it. You’ll get all the nutrients without the sore jaw.
