Cruciferous Vegetables’ Weight Loss Benefits

May 21, 2021

Despite its rather "intimidating" tone yet somewhat interesting, cruciferous vegetables are actually good for you. They help promote weight loss, among others.

Vegetables – you may hate them as a kid, but now that you're an adult, you should know how important they are. When it comes to vegetables, there are varieties, including leafy greens, root and cruciferous ones.

Despite its rather "intimidating" tone yet somewhat interesting, cruciferous vegetables are actually good for you. They help promote weight loss, among others. You'd be surprised that you may, in fact, know many of them already.

Cabbage

It's high in fibre, low in fat, and a cup of cooked Cabbage contains only 33 kcal, ideal for weight loss, you have to agree. It's also good for the brain as it contains Vitamin K and anthocyanins. Commonly, it's prepared in soup form, but there are plenty of cabbage recipes to stir that appetite and light the imagination!

Bok Choy

Bok choy is a vegetable that most would be familiar with. It's a common fare on dinner tables in many parts of the world these days as well. It contains nutrients like iron and zinc, which are crucial in the production and growth of collagen. It also has Vitamins K, C and E, to name a few. Apart from stir-frying, there are other ways to enjoy your bok choy!

Broccoli

Broccoli, the bane of most children and some adults. Maybe it's the appearance, but the maxim that an appearance can be deceiving definitely applies to the broccoli. It is packed with nutrients, including soluble fibre that can help reduce cholesterol, which conjointly is good for the heart. You can make it visually palatable for yourself or the kids as well.

Kale

If you want healthy skin, hair and bones, then Kale is your answer. Regarded as one of the world's most nutritious foods, kale is also a good source of iron and Vitamin C. Kale can be had as a smoothie and not forgetting, in several appetite-stimulating ways.

Brussels Sprouts

Another vegetable that's high in nutrients and rich in antioxidants is Brussels sprouts. Antioxidants can help reduce the risk of chronic disease, which should make this vegetable a staple on your plate. It's also high in fibre, and that, among other things, helps to promote digestive health. You don't have to scratch your head when it comes to brussels sprouts recipes, for there are heaps!

There are other vegetables of the cruciferous variety equally worth mentioning, like radish, turnips and watercress being some examples. But, of course, one of the reasons behind the demand for cruciferous vegetables is their apparent cancer-fighting properties. Still, in general, eating vegetables is generally good for you, and when something is good, there's no reason to hate it, right? So, finish your greens.
