Description:
How simple is this make and it is such a great way to use these amazing veggies.

Broccoli and cauliflower are members of the cruciferous family of vegetables that includes cabbage, turnips, rutabaga, kale, bok choy, Brussels sprouts and mustard greens. The nutritional value of broccoli and cauliflower combined with its low calories make these vegetables a must have on any healthy eating plan.
There is a high level of vitamin C in broccoli. Broccoli is also packed with vitamin A, beta carotene, B vitamins especially B3 and B5, folic acid, phosphorus, potassium, iron, chromium, which is an easily absorbed form of calcium, zinc and lots of fiber. It's also loaded with carotenoids - antioxidants that are thought to help with weight loss.

Cauliflower is at its best from December through March when it is in season and most plentiful in your local markets. Cauliflower contains allicin, which can improve heart health and reduce the risk of strokes, and selenium, a chemical that works well with Vitamin C to strengthen the immune system. Cauliflower can also help to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.

Wellness Tip
Dressing for Outdoor Winter Exercise
Dress appropriately and comfortably for cold weather exercise. Multiple layers will initially keep you warm and you can easily remove them, one at a time, as your body heats up. Likewise, a hat prevents substantial heat loss through the head and can also be easily removed.

Addictions
Many of us do not understand why or how individuals become addicted to certain substances. There is often a mistaken assumption that the addictive habit can be overcome with sheer willpower. The reality is that many people do not have control over their addiction, and even if they want to stop, they can’t!
