Superstar Food – Broccoli

broccoli2Broccoli is bonafide healthy food megastar. This non-starchy, cold weather veggie is chock full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, yet ridiculously low in calories. Even more remarkable, broccoli is home to over 150 health-promoting phytochemicals, including sulforaphane, now world famous for its anti-cancer prowess. Because I know that “volume” is a powerful appetite suppressant, broccoli is my go-to veggie for bulking up my meals and dishes without adding hardly any calories. Strive to include 2 or more servings weekly, and note broccoli is healthiest raw or lightly steamed.
