Benefits of Adding Broccoli to Your Diet:
We all know what broccoli is. It’s a popular vegetable that has many healthy benefits. It’s full of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Most of us are familiar with vitamins and minerals. But, what are antioxidants and what can they do for our health. And did you know that broccoli is one of the best vegetables for combatting cancer?
Broccoli has antioxidants which are compounds found naturally in food. Many food scientists believe antioxidants can reduce the risk of cancer. Free radicals can cause damage to cells that result in cancer. Our bodies form free radicals from variables like stress, exposure to harmful chemicals and poor diet. The antioxidants from broccoli can help reduce or eliminate these free radicals. So, eating broccoli and other foods rich in antioxidants can clean your body of harmful molecules. Improved bone, skin and digestive health are just a few of the many benefits of broccoli.
Also, broccoli is a vegetable that contains protein. And believe it or not, based on calories, broccoli has more protein than beef. Broccoli has almost 5 grams of protein for every 35 calories. So, if you’re looking to add healthy carbs and protein to your diet, add some broccoli from our a la carte section.
