Broccoli is Wonderful for Health!

                                   Broccoli is Wonderful for Health!

Broccoli, a member of the cabbage family, has many health benefits as well as making a delicious side for any meal. Broccoli can be cut up and added to a main dish for its unique flavor plus nutrition. The best way to prepare broccoli and to preserve vitamins is to steam for about 5 minutes. This helps to retain the color, fiber content, and more importantly nutrition. Not only is broccoli delicious, it has detoxification properties that neutralize and eliminate toxins built up in our bodies. Broccoli provides vitamin D, K, and A as well as kaempferol, a flavinoid,that lessens allergic responses and provides and anti-inflammatory benefit. Children like it too, so add florets to a stir fry or shred into a fresh slaw, our families have everything to gain!
