You’d be hard pressed to find a vegetable with more to offer than any member of the cruciferous clan. With ample fiber and numerous phytonutrients, consuming this robust roughage curtails inflammation and in so doing, contributes to decreased chronic disease risk and increased fat burning.

To Be, or Not to Be Saturated

The nation’s top nutrition panel–the one that influences everything from what the government endorses (think food pyramid) to what most physicians recommend to their patients–has had a recent change of heart.
