Eat a healthy diet: cruciferous twice a week
Taking care of your diet is essential, and following a healthy diet should be one of the key resolutions of the new year. Fruits and vegetables become our best allies, but the expert goes further and launches her bet on crucifers. “Now that we have more ingrained in the consumption of vegetables and fruits I will speak directly about cruciferous. Arugula, cauliflower, kale, broccoli, turnip greens, turnips, cabbage, Brussels sprouts … They contain powerful antioxidants such as sulforaphane which could inhibit the growth of tumors “, he explains and tells us that to absorb sulforaphane –which is found inactively in vegetables with the molecular form of glucoraphanin– it has to be crushed. “If we crush the broccoli, the myrosinase enzyme is activated and then our body has the ability to better absorb this antioxidant. You can also add mustard seeds to broccoli since mustard is very rich in myrosinase”, he tells us, and recommends us to plan a weekly menu where the crucifers fit twice a week to benefit from all its properties.
