Broccoli has great benefits, and cooked with Coconut Oil, Even Better!

Broccoli is a member of the cruciferous family of vegetables which contain phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and fiber.  Eating broccoli is said to lower our risk of cancer and may help protect us against cardiovascular disease.  Michelle’s family enjoys this recipe because of the browning effect from the broiler, it gives it an enhanced flavor and richer dimensions.  This cooking method is also great for cauliflower.  Enjoy!
