8 Reasons To Eat Broccoli Everyday

Posted by Kristin Doyle under Articles, Health Tips, Recipes

gypsybroccoliBroccoli is my favorite vegetable.  I just love it! (Well, except when it’s overcooked and loses its pretty green color.)

It is a cruciferous vegetable – which is a powerful cancer-fighting plant family.  Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, Swiss Chard, Kale, Collards, Spinach, Cabbage, Bok Choy, Radish, Rutabaga and Arugula (just to name a few) are also in the cruciferous family.  Hopefully you enjoy at least one of those, if not a few.  Find the ones you like and eat them often.

 

Here are 8 reasons I eat broccoli:

1.  Broccoli helps prevent cancer.  Broccoli (and other cruciferous veg.) hinders the growth of certain cancers.

2.  Broccoli is low in calories but high in nutrients.  This helps to curb overeating because you get what you need. When you eat junk foods (low in nutrients but high in calories) your body tells you to keep eating, hoping you will finally get the nutrients that are needed.

3.  It’s high in antioxidants that boost the immune system. (more…)
