I usually am not much for pasta's. My mother never cooked such, but I do make exceptions especially when it compliments a good vegetable like broccoli, which has natural "sulphorophane's" family that are anti fungal cancer foods. In this one I uses Safflower oil. . The Safflower flower, herb is the substitute for Saffron, which help to eliminate the fat out of the body along with the uric acids and toxins. Helps with any pain in arthritis and diabetic neuropathy. Buy an Italian package dressing mix following the package direction using safflower oil. This page is to educate mostly, to use broccoli regularly in good diets. Make Cream of broccoli soup or find recipes to facilitate using it more in children's diets so they will like it. It's the (Mom's) that cooks and ruins their tastes for broccoli.
Broccoli Pasta Salad
2 cups rotini pasta
2 cups fresh broccoli florets (Watch carefully, do not over cook)
1 cup diced tomatoes or halved cherry tomatoes etc.
1/4-cup ripe sliced olives (or more it adds the salt)
1/3 cup Italian dressing (Follow packaged directions, use safflower oil. (More or Less)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan (topping) (and optional)
Cook pasta as directed on package, add broccoli to pasta during the last two minutes of pasta's cooking time; drain in medium bowl.
Add remaining ingredients; mix lightly, top with topping, and refrigerate and chill for several hours.
*Or another topping, roast Pine Nuts at 325 for 5 minutes. Spray Pam on pan first.
*Save the stem for vegetable broths. Freeze in a veggie bag. Vegetable broths are good in-between meals, cutting down on hunger but not on nutrition. I have frozen bags like this in the freezer for all the odd vegetable used that month, and then used on a semi fast day once a month.
*Pasta: Follow directions on package. Be careful not to overcook.
Remember whole grains pasta products are complex foods and digest more slowly and are better for blood sugars.
Broccoli (Brassica oleracea)
Broccoli contains particular chemicals that are known to prevent cancer. (An excellent anti fungal if those properties haven't been mess with and mostly removed (GMO).
It is also rich in many nutrients such as calcium, vitamin C, folic acid and iron.
Since the broccoli is rich in dietary fibers it can reduce the risk of cancer, especially colon cancer.
Its high levels of vitamin E, vitamin C and beta-carotene provide us with a good intake of anti-oxidants, which help reduce risk of heart disease and stroke.
It is rich in iron and folic acid that helps to combat anemia. These nutriments, especially folic acid, are very important for women who want to have a child. Folic acid reduces the risk of having a baby with Spina bifida.
Caution: Broccoli reduces iodine absorption. If you eat it more than 3 times a week you should ensure your iodine intake. However, if your allergic to fish or fish iodine products...eat broccoli.
Six years ago, researchers found that men who ate two or more half-cup servings of broccoli per week had a 44 percent lower incidence of bladder cancer compared to men who ate less than one serving each week. Now researchers have isolated compounds from the vegetable that they believe are responsible for this effect.
They isolated compounds called glucosinolates from broccoli sprouts, which have been found to also fight breast cancer and ulcers. During chopping, chewing and digestion, these phytochemicals morph into nutritional powerhouses called isothiocyanates--compounds that are believed to play a role in inhibiting cancer.
In the experiments, the isothiocyanates hindered the growth of bladder cancer cells--and the most profound effect was on the most aggressive form of bladder cancer they studied.
While young sprouts naturally have higher concentrations of these phytochemicals than full-grown broccoli spears, eating the spears also provides health benefits.
This isn't the only broccoli compound that may have anti-cancer benefits; the researchers say there are at least a dozen other interesting compounds in broccoli that could affect various types of cancer. Not a broccoli fan? Broccoli isn't the only cruciferous veggie with health benefits, the plant's kin, which include cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and kale, may all contain similar disease-fighting phytochemicals.
Food For Thought:
*Did you know fiber is a natural yeast inhibitor?
*If they have to advertise it...it's a bad food.
