I love adding broccoli to my food and this healthy broccoli salad is another great option. In addition to the health benefits, it is also super easy salad to make. Prepare the salad in no time and serve it for dinner or breakfast with the main dish.

Looking for a vegan meal? The broccoli salad and the Black Lentils Patties with Zucchini is a perfect combination. Another idea, you’re not vegan or vegetarian?  I like to pair the broccoli salad with the greek chicken in yogurt marinade.

I enjoy playing with this broccoli salad recipe and add some fun twist. First of all, I like adding pumpkin seeds and some nuts for a crunchy upgrade. Non-vegans try to add feta cheese, parmesan or mozzarella.

The Brocolli is from the cabbage family also known as cruciferous. If you ask me, broccoli is a superfood because the health benefits are outstanding

Broccoli health benefits:

  • Cancer-Fighting Properties – It’s simple math eating large amounts of cruciferous vegetables is linked to a lower risk of cancer. Mix you cruciferous and have some broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, turnip and also cabbage.
  • Improve digestion – Broccoli is naturally rich in fiber.  Eating enough fiber can prevent constipation, keep a healthy digesting tract and lower the risk of colon cancer.
  • Vitamin C – broccoli contains a good quantity of vitamin c. The vitamin c can help protect from sun damage and help your skin looks younger.
  • Improve Bone strength – Also Broccoli contains a good quantity of Vitamin K. Vitamin K is known to improve bone health by improving the absorption of calcium.

 

Warning: if you’re taking blood thinners such as Coumadin, consult your doctor or a nutritionist regarding the broccoli consumption because vitamin k plays a role in blood clotting.

I would like to recommend a few of our delicious and healthy recipes with broccoli. The broccoli and leak yogurt soup, roasted broccoli in olive oil or the broccoli and cauliflower in turmeric and ghee.
