Get the full benefit out of eating broccoli

September 15th, 2011 No Comments

“The spicier, the better [for you]” recent studies show.

“According to a new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, pairing broccoli with foods that have the enzyme myrosinase increases the cancer-fighting power, and it allows the absorption of myrosinase to occur in the upper part of the digestive system, where it will do the most good.” (from article on MotherNatureNetwork)

To get the most of your broccoli, obviously don’t cover it in cheese.  Instead, the article suggests to heat it for 2-4 minutes and add:

  • Mustard
  • Horseradish
  • Wasabi

or even:

  • Radish
  • Arugula
  • Cabbage
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Watercress
