Our top seven broccoli recipes

We all know we should eat more greens, but did you know how good vegetables such as broccoli can be for your gut? Recent scientific studies have found the reason why food like broccoli are so good for you and particularly how they can reduce the risk of developing bowel cancer. 

Broccoli contains the chemical indole-3-carbinol which can benefit the lining of the bowel. When tested on mice, the study showed diets high in indole-3-carbinol protected the mice from cancer, even those whose genes put them at very high risk of the disease.

To get more broccoli into your diet and benefit your gut, here are our favourite broccoli recipes.
