These little green trees are packed full of vitamins! With A, K and more vitamin C than citrus fruits, broccoli is great for building immunity. Like other members of the cruciferous family, broccoli is great for removing arterial residue like fat and cholesterol. In addition to the heart healthy benefits received from consuming broccoli, the phytonutrients it contains aide the body in detoxing and also help heal the liver. Its antibiotic and antiviral properties are due in large part to the vast amount of sulfur in the vegetable. To retain much of its nutrient content, lightly steam the broccoli; it can be added to pastas, or omelets for added color, and crunch.
