Today’s Health Tip ~ Have You Tried Broccolini? It’s a Winner

Broccolini is a cruciferous vegetable similar to broccoli. Many people love broccolini because it has a more delicate texture than broccoli. Even picky eaters may find it tasty, and it’s easy to prepare. Leafy greens like broccolini host a range of essential micronutrients that may provide additional health benefits. Broccolini and other cruciferous vegetables contain sulfur-rich compounds like sulforaphane — the compound behind many of its purported health benefits. Eating Brassica vegetables like broccolini provides so many antioxidants that it may have anticancer potential.  Daily intake of cruciferous vegetables was associated with a lower risk for death by all causes in a 17-year-long study in 88,184 middle-aged people with no history of cancer, heart attack, or stroke.


Note: I pop it in the air fryer at 385 for 3 minutes. When I take it out, I drizzle EVOO on it and grate a bit of Parmesan Regianno on it. Very Good!
