While raw broccoli helps fight diseases like diabetes and cancer, it’s also a delicious vegetable to incorporate into your repertoire. I wanted to make a dish that highlighted the broccoli and that really tasted good!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
If you have an under-active thyroid, it’s important to note that raw crucifers, like broccoli, can lower the body’s ability to produce thyroid hormones, so be mindful of how much you’re consuming.
