Eat More Broccoli....Sprouts

If you haven’t eaten broccoli lately, its time to start. This article at The World’s Healthiest Foods convinced me that I need to eat this vegetable more often. Sulphoraphane, one of several important phytochemicals found in broccoli, is a strong anti-cancer and anti-tumor agent that also boosts the liver’s detoxification enzymes.

I’ve noticed broccoli sprouts next to the alfalfa sprouts at my grocer’s lately. A recent study has shown that 3-day old broccoli sprouts have
20-50 times more sulphoraphane than mature plants.

Next time I prepare my rocket salad, I’m going to toss in some broccoli sprouts.
