Wondering how to start following the alkaline diet? Along with cutting out processed foods, sugar, alcohol, dairy, and meat, you can also try eating the right types of produce to make the most of this plan. Since the foundation of any good diet relies on eating plenty of fresh vegetables, the next time you are making a big salad or looking for the perfect side dish, choose from the five veggies below.
Full of vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber, folate, and phytonutrients, broccoli is a super hero vegetable. If you enjoy the taste of broccoli in its natural state, you can snack on it raw, or you can bake it in the oven until it gets crispy and flavorful, and top it with cheese, seasonings, and spices. If you are looking for broccoli with the highest amount of carotenoids, look for deeper and richer colors when inspecting the florets.
