Do you know

what Cruciferous Vegetables are??

There’s been more talk of late of the cruciferous vegetables, also known, from its genus name, as “the brassicas.” This is because these sulphur containing vegetables are being touted as a way to lower your cancer risk. Indeed, these vegetables along with all the others help make-up a healthy and colorful diet.

 Bring on the brassicas!

 Broccoli                Cabbage                         Wasabi

Cauliflower           Brussels Sprouts           Bok Choy

Arugula                 Collard Greens               Horseradish

Kale                       Radishes                        Rutabega

Turnip                   Watercress                    

Phyto means plant. While scientists have classified vitamins and minerals, there are many other substances found only in plants that are believed to be helpful. Certainly common sense dictates that we are healthier when we eat our vegetables. These plant substances are known as phytonutrients or phytochemicals.

Cruciferous vegetables contain the phytochemicals sulforaphane, flavones, and indole-3-carbinol, that have been shown to reduce breast cancer risk.

Steam, bake, sautee, blend, stir-fry, or raw. Eat ‘em any way that makes you happy. But do eat them!
