Broccoli, when cooked correctly, can be quite tasty as I am sure most of you will agree with me. Moreover, it is very rich in many vital nutrients that we need such as calcium, potassium, folate, fibre and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are compounds which can reduce the risk of developing heart diseases, diabetes and even some cancers. Also, broccoli is a great source of vitamin C, even more so than oranges! Amazing, right? It is also a good source of beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant. It also contains sulforphane which is anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory and moreover, even helps in preventing osteoarthritis, which is a very common form of arthritis.
