Broccoli

5 reasons why you should include broccoli (organic, if possible) in your diet:
1. It's high in vitamins A, K and C
2. It's a rich source of kaempferol (a flavonoid)
3. It has anti-inflammatory benefits
4. It can enhance detoxification
5. It's a good source of fiber

Tips for buying and cooking broccoli:
• Look for broccoli that is firm and not wilted. The color should be a vibrant, dark green. Do not buy broccoli that has browning stems.
• Eating broccoli lightly cooked or raw is best to get the most nutrients.
Broccoli can be steamed, sauteed or roasted.
• Store broccoli in an open bag in the refrigerator. Fresh broccoli should last about a week. Wash right before eating/cooking.
• Broccoli is a delicious, easy snack when paired with hummus.
