Broccoli is a nutrient-powerhouse that sometimes gets a bad rap for it’s sulfur smell. However, that sulfur helps our cardiovascular and central nervous systems run properly, among other things. Loaded with over 100% of your daily value for both Vitamins K and C, broccoli actually contains more Vitamin C than an orange.
This cruciferous veggie has phytonutrients to help your body’s detoxification processes, and is also a powerful anti-inflammatory food. The vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients combined in broccoli work together to lower your body’s oxidative stress.
Be sure to include this and other cruciferous veggies several times a week. It’s easy to roast a big pan of broccoli for dinner and then have leftovers for breakfast.
