Mom was certainly right about eating your vegetables. To wit: broccoli is packed with nutrients such as vitamin C, folate, potassium, vitamin K, and beta carotene. All of these micronutrients are valuable when it comes to supporting exercise. The best part is the high-fiber and low-calorie content of broccoli. It's a food that nutritionists often refer to as a nutrient-dense food, meaning that it has plenty of nutrients without a high-calorie load. Let's not forget also that broccoli, being a cruciferous vegetable with unique phytochemicals like sulforaphane, is linked to a reduced risk of cancers of the bladder, colon, lung, and breast.
BOTTOM LINE: Strive to eat broccoli at least once per week for good health.
