Superfood Saturday – Broccoli

Where are my broccoli-lovers? I know you are out there! Right?!Broccoli

I know many of us were grossed out by broccoli as a child, but hopefully we have all outgrown that? I mean, its such a powerful superfood, and so versatile! You can bake it, sauté it, enjoy it raw with hummus, or in a salad, use it as a pizza topping… so many ways to get the many vitamins and nutrients of Broccoli into your diet!

The sulphurophanes and other phytonutrients in broccoli may also lower your risk for cancer. These help to remove toxins from the body, get rid of free radicals and help stop the division of cancer cells. Eating broccoli may slow down the spread of cancer cells throughout the body.

Do you have a favorite recipe using broccoli? Do you like Broccoli? Have you always?

Me? I have always liked it (super pro-veggie child here, much to my mother’s delight!), but I like it a LOT more knowing its so loaded with benefits and healthy, and won’t jack up my blood sugars – ALWAYS a plus! 🙂
