Healthy Broccoli Salad 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Cruciferous vegetables are known to have protective effects against cancer. DIM is destroyed by cooking – so getting some raw seems like a good idea. Diindolylmethane (DIM) is being studied at UC Berkeley for its role in cancer therapy. DIM is found in raw cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale. There is the popular broccoli salad with mayonnaise, sugar and bacon, but I wanted a healthier version. Here is what I came up with. I love it when healthy habits taste so great.



Ingredients:
1 head broccoli, chopped (including at least some of the stems)
¼ red onion, chopped
1 cup radicchio, chopped (or use cabbage or any other veggie)
1 carrot, grated
1 cup Mandarin oranges
¼ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup cashews, chopped (or walnuts or almonds)
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
Balsamic/Olive oil vinaigrette

Options:
Add some feta cheese or bocconcini cheese
Sprinkle of hemp heart or flax seeds
1 cup of cooked couscous or cooked Quinoa




Directions:
Mix all ingredients, using just enough salad dressing to moisten. I think this is even better if it sits for a little while, allowing the dressing to soften the vegetables.

This is just a starting place! You could use any combination of vegetables, fruits and nuts.

Eat well!

Wellness Tip
Cross-Training to Avoid Stress Fractures
A stress fracture is a small crack in a bone's outer layer. It can develop when exercise stresses the same bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles over and over again. A good example is your foot striking the ground during jogging. Cross-training (two or more types of exercise during one workout, or two different exercises on different days) can often prevent stress fractures or give them a better chance to heal.

What is the Difference Between Free Run and Free Range Eggs?
I am confounded by the difference between free range and free run eggs. In my lazy attempt to be a good consumer, I try to go for the one that subjectively sounds the best, and promise to go home and do my homework. I am sharing my results with you.
