Did you know that Cruciferous vegetables detoxify your body?  Consuming a variety of these on a daily basis (along with other healthy choices) gives you a huge boost and protection against infection and cancer.   (Dr. Fuhrman, Super Immunity)

It is best to eat around 2 servings per day of these veggies - 1 raw (chew really well), 1 cooked (but don't over cook).  



Experiment with these.  You may be surprised that they taste great!   

I love to combine rutabaga and turnips with carrots, onions, garlic, and potatoes and roast them covered in the oven.  
Cut into small pieces, pour in vegetable broth to about an inch.  Sprinkle with sea salt, onion powder, and oregano.  (You can use oregano vitality oil instead of dried for a more robust flavor, but remember 1-2 drops is enough)  350 for 1 hr 30 min.

Most of these are great steamed with a little salt, or raw in a salad.  There are a lot of creative recipes, but watch out for those that add in foods that are not healthy!

Happy eating!
