Eating Healthy with Cruciferous Vegetables


Cruciferous veggies – broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and more are some of the healthiest you can eat and there is more and more research being done on them each year.  Not only are they incredibly high in Vitamin A, they are also very high in fiber.

One hundred calories’ worth of cruciferous vegetables (about 5-6% of a daily diet) provides about 25-40% of your daily fiber requirement! That fact shows what an incredible bargain cruciferous vegetables are when it comes to fiber. We suspect that it’s one of the reasons these vegetables have become increasingly prominent in research studies on diet and digestive support. We may not typically think about cruciferous vegetables when considering digestive disorders or risk of digestive tract cancers, but we should.
