Broccoli

June 16, 2016

 

My little vegetarian, loving her broccoli......

 

I remember reading a book in high school about "superfoods" which included broccoli. A superfoods list today would look quite different from the one I read in the early 90's, but broccoli would still be on it!!

 

Here's some of the good things about it:
Vit K
Vit C
Fiber
All the B vitamins
Trace minerals
Chromium
Vit E
Potassium 
and the list goes on.....

 

As a cruciferous vegetable (brassica), broccoli contains sulfur. Alot of emerging research is revealing the importance of these vegetables. Sulfur-rich foods are a major part of The Wahl's diet - developed for people with autoimmune diseases by a doctor with MS.

 

Sulfur is needed to support glutathione production, something those with autoimmune diseases, like type 1 diabetes, don't do well.

 

So, eat your broccoli!!
