When you work or have a full schedule, quick, easy, and tasty are factors that make a vegetable recipe more appealing to use. The beauty of this recipe is it is palatable to many ages. Plus, broccoli is a fighter you want on your team, with all its cancer-fighting phytochemicals, immune boosting vitamins and minerals, and the carotenoids beta carotene and lutein.
Remember from my smoothie post, the American Optometric Association website states that lutein helps prevent and can reverse cataracts and possibly macular degeneration. As I routinely ate or drank foods such as kale and broccoli, unbeknownst to me my cataract formation reversed. Who knows how many healing measures are being performed in our bodies when we routinely eat these powerhouse foods? Enjoy this quick and easy way to eat broccoli.
