How to Cook Broccoli to Retain the Most Health Benefits

How to Prepare Broccoli to Retain the Most Health Benefits

If you must cook your broccoli, lightly steam it to keep the antioxidants intact. Never microwave your antioxidant-rich foods! Raw is best to get the full nutritional and anti-cancer benefit of broccoli. If cooking, here’s how to retain the most nutrients:

  • Cut up organic broccoli a few minutes before cooking.
  • Bring two cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan.
  • Using a steaming basket, add broccoli and steam for approximately 5 minutes. The florets will be bright green, and the texture will be “tender-crisp.”
  • Serve with a sprinkle of coarse sea salt.

Whenever you can, choose real food rather than supplements. Synthetic versions of vegetables are not the same, and your body knows it! While you’ll get some of the benefits, most supplements aren’t absorbed well by your body.

Eat Your Way to a Healthy Life!

When you follow a cancer-free lifestyle, you automatically lower your risk of many other serious diseases that claim the lives of millions every year.

Your diet is a crucial aspect of total body wellness! Choose wisely and shop responsibly, choosing local and organic whenever possible. Eat real food (not processed), and reap the benefits for decades to come!
