Day 36: Broccoli--the best Liver detoxing food

So today is day 36 and I'm down another 2lbs from yesterday. I always carry water weight right before my monthly and then it releases so I reckon that's what's going on.

Today's food I'm focusing on is broccoli. When I started sitting down and looking at the nutritional content of various foods, a few foods kept on cropping up over and over again as nutritional powerhouses: broccoli, cauliflower and romaine lettuce. These three foods had such complete nutrition compared to other foods I realized I needed to start incorporating them regularly into my diet.

But wait, you're the FRUIT Doctor! Why are you recommending so many veggies???

Well, there are vitamins and minerals in greens that you just can't get enough of in just fruits alone. Namely, calcium, B Vitamins, zinc, selenium, Vitamin E as well as Omega 3 essential fatty acids.

Broccoli has a really strong taste and so a little goes a long way. And I've asked the maker of the above video if juicing counts as chewing. I'll let you know what I find out but I would imagine it does.

If anybody has any great broccoli recipes, I'd love to hear them.

Juice on, brave warriors.
