Skillet with vegetable stir fry

Broccoli is just so good for you! It’s a low starch, low calorie veggie that is packed with healthy nutrients and fiber that contributes to satiety. Several micronutrients in broccoli are known to support weight loss, and the phytochemicals it contains show potential for breaking down fats. One phytonutrient, called sulforaphane is particularly effective at helping to burn belly fat, said a study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

If you are not a big fan, try finding different ways of cooking it, sauces to drizzle on top, or dishes to hide it in so it can become part of your diet. Check out this broccoli recipe with a creamy fresh almond sauce that makes all the difference. Enjoy!
