It’s easier than it seems to add these power-packed vegetables to your daily diet. I disguise them inside my morning green smoothies, make crunchy slaws, massage them with olive oil (to break down the thick fiber) throw them into salads, and braise them.

Cruciferous veggies are proven cancer-fighters and are needed to help the liver in its detoxification process. In this day and age, we can’t afford to mess around. Eat one a day and work up to two.

Cruciferous (brassica family) vegetables include: arugula, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, kohlrabi, mustard greens, radishes, rutabagas, turnips, watercress.
