Cleansing Broccoli Caesar Salad

Broccoli, like other popular cruciferous relatives (kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts) is a key ingredient in all detox diets. Its sulphur compounds activate both phases of detoxification via the liver, supporting its function as a metabolizer and neutralizer of toxins. Cooking diminishes the amount of sulphur compounds, and especially in detox diets broccoli is best consumed raw. This Caesar detox salad comes with a crunchy texture, rich dressing, and loads of nutrients to nourish your body.
