Last week I made a snack change that fascinated me. I always bring fruit to work in the morning and hummus for the afternoon snack. But, I found that I had to change the strategy to eat something nutritious, rich and different. So, I bought vegetables and a low fat and low calorie dressing. This is how I got into an affair with broccoli. I dipped the tips of a twig in dressing (a little bit and with a few drops of vinegar) and delighted me.
Broccoli is high in vitamin C, zinc, and antioxidants like beta carotene and selenium. Therefore, it is considered an anti-aging agent. In addition, the Vida Natural portal explains that since it has so much iron it is great for people with anemia problems and for pregnant women due to its high content of folic acid.
Eating broccoli at two to three meals a week helps constipation sufferers improve this condition. This vegetable native to the Middle East was used by the Romans. And it is aromatic, healthy and full of color. You can prepare it in different ways: a) boiled with a droplet of margarine; b) sautéed with oil and garlic; c) breaded and roasted or simply raw with dressing.
Broccoli or broccoli is a vegetable that you must include in your diet. Always remember to consult your doctor.
