Did you know?

Broccoli, like its cruciferous cousins, is a fantastic source of dietary fiber. Aside from digestive aid, fiber helps control blood sugar levels by slowing the rate at which the body absorbs sugar. That’s why so many diets for diabetic individuals are high in fiber. Plus, soluble fiber can help reduce the “bad” cholesterol levels in your body. It also promotes a number of other heart health benefits. Finally, if you’re on a diet, one of the best reasons to eat more fiber? It helps you achieve and maintain a healthy weight! Fiber-heavy foods can make you feel more full, letting you stave off snacking and control your portions.
