Cross Yourself for Ultimate Health!
Cruciferous veggies get their name because of the four petal leaves that are shaped in the sign of the crucifix. They also hold the distinct honor of being the "big guy" when fighting a list of diseases like cancer, inflammation, obesity, and high blood pressure that can lead to heart disease. From broccoli, to Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, horseradish, and mustard greens, these vegetables are a MUST in prevention of chronic diseases. God is so smart!
I love, love, love broccoli! I also like to put spicy mustard on them sometimes when I eat it. Adding the spice, whether it is from horseradish or spicy mustard, is a great way to increase the benefits of these veggies, if that's possible! Adding heat to any food is a great way to get rid of toxins in your body, increase your metabolism, and help your digestion. So look for the cross when shopping this week. Your body, heart, and soul, will thank you for it!
Until next time...~Enjoy!
