I am concluding my superfoods series with broccoli.
Broccoli may seem like such a mundane vegetable that can be used in practically any way. But most people aren't aware of broccoli's superfood abilities.
Broccoli is a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K and iron. Vitamin A, most commonly associated with yellow and orange vegetables, helps with eye sight and immune health. Vitamin C is a great helper vitamin and helps your body absorb the iron found in broccoli. Vitamin K is a valuable vitamin which helps your body utilize vitamin D for bone strength. In addition to all these micronutrient benefits, broccoli is high in fiber and low in calories (like most veggies!).
Broccoli is a very versatile vegetable. It can be eaten raw, steamed, grilled, roasted, baked or in any dish. I like to add broccoli to foods such as eggs, casseroles, soups, salads, etc. Here are links to some other great allrecipe.com recipes which include broccoli:
