RECIPE | BROCCOLI SALAD

This quick and easy broccoli salad will make eating this vegetable seem like a breeze especially if you like coleslaw. The crunchy raw broccoli is marinated in organic mayonnaise, vinegar and cane sugar giving it a sweetness while mixed with red onions, raisins and pumpkin seeds. Also if you're looking for a brand that sells good organic mayo using free-run eggs, check out Neal's Brothers classic mayonnaise by clicking here.

Broccoli is a super food. It has many health benefits as listed below:

  • Prevents cancer. It contains glucoraphanin which is converted into a cancer fighting element which helps the body get rid of a cancer causing bacterium called H.pylori.
  • Reduces your cholesterol as broccoli is full of fibre that helps cholestrol exit your body.
  • Helps keep allergic reactions at bay and lowers inflammation as it contains anti-inflammatory nutrients.
  • High in antioxidants as it is packed with Vitamin C.
  • Gives your strong bones since it's high in calcium and vitamin K.
  • Keeps your heart in check as it prevents damage to blood vessels.
  • Great for detoxifying your body.
