I have been trying to get this easy healthy creamy broccoli soup pubished on this blog but it kept escaping my mind. I like broccoli and I like to do a lot of dietary stuff with broccoli. Eat it in any way, shape or form. Broccoli is one of the cruciferous vegetables that you should eat lots of at every opportunity.
Cruciferous vegetables belong to the group of superfoods. Cruciferous vegetables are rich in antioxidants which help fight inflammation and by extension help in cancer prevention. Broccoli also has Vitamin C that facilitates absorption of Iron.
Let’s not forget too that broccoli is a verified source of vitamin B1, calcium, iron, niacin, magnesium, protein, zinc, and selenium.
