Saturday’s Food For Thought: Broccoli Rabe
Broccoli Rabe pairs beautifully with bold ingredients like sausage, anchovy and hot pepper.
Like other cabbage family members it’s packed with nutritious vitamins like; vitamin C, potassium, calcium and fiber as well as carotenoids and cancer-fighting indoles and isothiocyanates.
The latest news with this power food is that it’s a cancer preventing potential. It holds a rich source of glucosinolates, which the body converts to cancer fighting sulforophanes and indoles. Studies have shown that these compounds are effective against stomach, lung, and colon cancers.
Did you know……..
Only 3 1/2 ounces of the broccoli rabe serving provides more than half your daily requirement of antioxidant rich vitamins A & C.
Why not eat healthy, and grab some broccoli rabe?!!
