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. These power plants are also famous for their optimization of estrogen metabolism (protecting boobs and preventing moobs); not to mention their association with lower cancer risk.
Cruciferous carbs are nonstarchy making them a good choice for the carb conscientious. Swapping broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage–or any other cruciferous vegetable–for doughnuts (or bread and pasta for that matter), will go a long way toward fending off metabolic syndrome and diabetes. And to top it all off you can top them off with some grass-fed butter.
Cruciferous Coleslaw Stir-Fry
Stir-fry chopped onion and garlic in coconut oil.
Toss in a full bag (or 2) of broccoli slaw.
Add in splashes of tamari sauce and apple cider vinegar (optional), some ginger, and salt and pepper to taste.
Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes or until slaw is al dente in texture.
The variations are practically endless–I think I’ll add pistachios or cashews next time!
