Rebecca paints a clear picture of why broccoli is brilliant…so you will understand readily that eating your broccoli is good for you…
This delicious green smoothie combines apple, banana, and pineapple with an entire cup of raw broccoli. Raw broccoli in a smoothie does not sound appealing for many reasons, but I am here to tell you that you can indeed hide broccoli in your smoothie. And even enjoy the delicious green smoothie. The sweet flavors from the other fruits will have you enjoying a drink that provides a major health boost.
Broccoli contains several notable nutrients. The first is a high amount of vitamin C, which helps out the immune system as an antioxidant. The apple, pineapple, and lemon juice in this smoothie all have vitamin C as well. Vitamin C fights against cell damage and aids in preventing heart disease.
Also found in broccoli are the powerful antioxidants lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene. Lutein and zeaxanthin benefit your vision by working to prevent cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Additionally, broccoli is rich in beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. Vitamin A supports your eyesight, along with maintaining healthy skin and bones.
…and there’s more.
