How to stay young and healthy for a long time

Those who suffer from heart disease know how important it is to take care of nutrition. In cases where the clinical disorder limits the person’s ability to work, it is possible to request the recognition of an economic allowance. If nutrition is an excellent ally of health, its effect improves if it is associated with an active life. We showed it in the article “How to stay young at 60 with a very simple and very effective exercise”.

Speaking of nutrition, in autumn you can find so-called cruciferous or brassicas vegetables on almost all stalls of fresh produce. These vegetables owe their name to the arrangement of their flowers that join together to form a sort of cross. Among the main ones we find broccoli, cauliflower, various types of cabbage, radishes and turnip greens. Present on our tables starting from the recipes of local traditions, crucifers have increasingly attracted the interest of the scientific community. The reason lies in the important components that are present within them, making them real allies for health.

A recent Australian study showed how frequently serving these vegetables can protect heart health. According to the researchers, the cruciferous tree effectively contributes to reducing the accumulation of calcium in the aorta, preventing atherosclerotic diseases. The richness of vitamins, antioxidants and other compounds gives these vegetables enormous beneficial properties. So let’s see an idea to bring them to the table and enjoy them to the fullest.

An idea to accompany the second dish with a cruciferous vegetable involves the preparation of crispy cauliflower in a pan with the scent of anchovies. To make a side dish suitable for four people, the following ingredients are needed:

  • 1 cauliflower;
  • 5 tablespoons of breadcrumbs;
  • 5 anchovy fillets in oil;
  • a bunch of aromatic herbs;
  • 1 clove of garlic;
  • salt and red pepper to taste

First wash and divide the cauliflower into small florets which will be blanched in water and salt for 3-5 minutes. In a pan, sauté the garlic with the oil and add the anchovy fillets with the chili pepper to your liking. At this point add the blanched cauliflower florets and sauté. In a second pan, brown the breadcrumbs with a drizzle of oil beforehand so that it becomes very crunchy. When the cauliflower has finished cooking, add the golden breadcrumbs and mix the ingredients. Season with a pinch of salt and chop the aromatic herbs to give the dish an inviting aroma.
