Broccoli is a very nutritious food.



 Broccoli is one of those superfoods that is readily available in most locations during nearly every season. High consumption of broccoli has been associated with healthy eating. Eating more non-starchy vegetables such as broccoli is connected with reduced risk of some cancers (including mouth, throat and stomach cancers), according to evidence on cancer prevention by the World Cancer Research Fund. Eating a diet high in cruciferous vegetables along with a healthy dose of turmeric daily may also have anti-cancer benefits.   

Finding a way to eat Broccoli that everyone will enjoy is a chore for many families. Many children just will not eat it without a cheese-like substance oozing all over it. Finding a middle ground that will make everyone happy can be difficult. Hopefully, this recipe will be of some help to those who are determined to get this super-nutritious vegetable into their daily diet (and the diet of their loved ones).

 Even though the majority of these ingredients are acid, you can make up for it by eating other alkaline veggies as side dishes. The object of the High Alkaline foods eating style is not to avoid acid-forming foods altogether but to maintain a diet of 60-80% alkaline-forming foods to optimize your health and boost the strength of your immune system. This type of eating will naturally normalize many body functions (such as waste elimination) and help melt away any unwanted excess body fat.
