KNOW YOUR FOOD: Benefits of Broccoli
Broccoli is a vegetable belonging to the cabbage family and has been around for more than 2000 years. Broccoli is also known as a cruciferous vegetable and they pack a nutritional and inflammation-fighting one-two punch. They’re also rich in phytonutrients — plant-based compounds that may help to lower inflammation and reduce the risk of developing cancer. Cruciferous vegetables also are rich in fibre and low in calories, a combination that will help you feel full and satisfied without overeating.
