Before we take a look at today’s marvelous recipe let’s just take a minute to run through some more health benefits of this incredible vegetable.
The fiber in broccoli combines with the bile acids in your digestive tract which results in lower cholesterol levels which we all know are vital to good health and longevity. Broccoli can also have a very positive impact on our bodies detox mechanisms. No need for complicated detox programs just eat plenty of broccoli on a regular basis. It is delicious and nutritious. It’s no secret We all need more natural sources of vitamins and minerals in our diets. Broccoli is loaded with both vitamin K & vitamin C as well as potassium and folate which aids in the production of new cells in the body.
