The Super Food Better Than Broccoli
The Super Food Better than Broccoli
Since I am all about feeling great, looking great, preventing disease and if at anytime I can slow down the aging process you know I have my antennas on alert.
Broccoli is one of the most researched superfoods with amazing anti-oxidant benefits that are chemoprotective, help stabilize blood sugar and even heart protective.
But the new guy in town (really not that new) are broccoli sprouts. They are more potent than broccoli and as little as ¼ to ½ cup can give 10-100 more benefits than the same amount of broccoli. It’s really the sulforaphane that provides these amazing benefits by turning on the NRF2 pathway, which turns on over 200 genes with positive health benefits:
Help with H.pylori infection that contributes to many GI issues
Improve cognitive ability in autism
Can improve respiratory function
Add this super food, in your morning smoothie, favorite veggie wrap, and sprinkle over your salad or grab a handful as a snack. A little bit goes a long way!!
How to make broccoli sprouts by Cheffin Delicious:
1) Rinse and soak broccoli seeds for 8-12 hours. Store in cool and dark place (kitchen cabinet is where I stored mine)
2) After 8-12 hours, drain the liquid and give it a rinse. Drain the liquid and let it sit upside down if using the lid I used and store in a cool dark place. **RINSE 2 TIMES A DAY (preferable day and night)**
3) Repeat for Day 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 (Dr. Rhonda Patrick stops at day 4 but my sprouts were not fully sprouted by that day)
4) On Day 6, rinse and drain and place the sprouts by the window for 10 hours to absorb sunlight and turn green.
5) After 10 hours, put sprouts in bowl and fill with water and remove excess seeds that didn't sprout. Drain and put in salad spinner to remove excess water.
6) Put in Ziploc bags and freeze to use in smoothies or put in refrigerator to consume in salads or sandwiches.
