In the Cretan Diet, Broccoli (L.Brassica oleracea var. italica ) has built up such a strong reputation in recent times for being economic to consume, yet it is full of all-natural anti-oxidants to cleanse the body. Broccoli really is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, chromium, and folate. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorus, choline, vitamin B1, vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), potassium, and copper. In fact, broccoli is brimming full of anti-oxidants. Best uncooked, but if you have to... really have to, then steam it to retain its goodness. It is so high in enzymes, it is these that do wonders for your digestive system as well as to cleanse it. Broccoli is plentiful across Greece and Cyprus as a locally grown produce when in season. Look out for this member of the cabbage family in virtually every Greek and Cypriot market.
