I find I have taken to including some dried cranberries for breakfast.
They are high in lipid soluble antioxidants. In my thinking this
different from taking supplements even if the thinking is similar.
Today's superfood in the news is broccoli - or rather the sulphur
compounds it contains.
Yes I saw that on the BBC site and immediately thought of you.
Then I smugly thought of the fridge (we had some with the pheasant
casserole this evening)
Envy is a healthy emotion. Well I hope it is. IMHO all emotions have
a positive purpose. Envy encourages us to do things for ourselves.
The last time I had pheasant was for a birthday years ago. It was a
very special occasion.
It is amazing how broccoli re-emerges as the super food when it comes
to reducing the risk of those cancers that are diet related. Several
things stand out as not often mentioned. The wild forms of broccoli
had five maybe ten times as much of these sulphur containing
compounds. Quite why they were bred out isn't at all clear. While
some beneficial compounds are bitter tasting apparently this isn't the
case here. They are tasteless and odourless.
Probably they got eliminated by mistake while they were trying to
breed out the stinky ones
Yes. I believe that is about what happened. The usual things they
breed out are the bitter things and other things get bred out along
with the bitter substances.
