I’ve really been loving my broccoli this week! Bought from my local organic store – I just can’t seem to get enough. I’ve been lightly steaming it & adding it to my salads for lunch, with a pinch of sea salt over the top. I’ve also enjoyed it as a quick dinner with some fresh kale roasted in the oven with coconut oil, or as a ‘dipper’ into some homemade basil and macadamia nut pesto.Broccoli deserves some limelight. It is such an amazing vegetable…it is considered a superfood! Here is a list of some of the many benefits of broccoli:
- from the mustard family which creates sulfur in the body helping to cleanse the tissues
- this sulfur content also improves our complexion
- boosts the immune system
- cancer prevention tool
- supports lung health
- supports eye health
- squashes colon cancer
- strengthens bones
- balances blood pressure
- is an alkaline vegetable
- contains an huge amount of antioxidants…therefore improving the health of our cells
Who wouldn’t want some?!
I dare you to be creative with this amazing superfood this weekend!
