Power Broccoli Brocco Sprouts

Brocco-Sprouts from Springwater Farms of Honeyoye Falls, NY

If broccoli isn’t your favorite of vegetables, but you’re at a loss of where to find a comparable nutrient-dense superfood, search no further and crunch down on some brocco-sprouts. I just stuffed a giant handful of brocco-sprouts into my mouth for a nutrient packed afternoon snack. These spicy little sprouts are my new favorite way to pack in several days worth of nutrients all in one serving!

Why Eat Brocco-Sprouts?

  • They contain sulforaphane which fights cancer (reduces tumor growth)
  • One small serving of sprouts (little over an ounce) is equal to 1 1/4 pounds of broccoli (not heads of, but pounds!!!)
  • Unlike other designer foods, brocco-sprouts are free from genetic modification

Sprout to It!
