Broccoli

Broccoli is the nutritional leader of the cruciferous family of vegetables, which have been shown to help protect against colorectal, stomach and respiratory cancers.  We enjoy broccoli raw in our salads and for dips, or cooked in stir-fries or in Italian dishes such as pizza and pasta prima vera.  When purchasing, select broccoli that is firm (crisp) and with dark green florets.  See the nutritional chart below.
