Want to get their cancer fighting benefits but don't love the way broccoli and others veggies taste?
Well scientists say that if you eat just three servings of broccoli (or any cruciferous vegetables) per month then you could be reducing your chances of developing bladder cancer by up to 40 percent. Here's the catch: The study was only done using raw vegetables, as their cooked counterparts lose 60 to 90 percent of cancer fighting properties.
Fit's Tip: Veggie plates loaded with raw cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower are always present at holiday parties, so fill up. What's more? If you fill up on veggies, you'll be less likely to fill up on desserts later.
