Broccoli goes well with other vegetables I think.
The main nutritional benefits of broccoli are:
1) Rich in detoxifying agents known as glucoraphanin, gluconasturtiion and glucograssicin which are three individual glucosinolate phytonutrients. They help the body through each stage of the detoxing process known as the activation, neutralisation and elimination phases where the body removes harmful toxins
2) Rich in ITCs (isothiocyanates) which derive from the glucosinolate phytonutrients helping the body detox
3) Extremely rich in Vitamin A and K which are essential in enabling the body to maintain a healthy vitamin D balance/metabolism. When we consider in parts of the world (the UK being one!) that Vitamin D deficiency is a huge problem this is of particular interest I feel
4) Great source of soluble fibre
Although many people will say it's boring broccoli is a frigging great source of nourishment for the body.
