Broccolini is part of the cruciferous vegetable family and is ideal in an anti-cancer diet due to a component called sulphoraphane. This compound is known to inhibit cancer cells and flush toxic substances from the body which may be linked to the development of cancer. Garlic and onions also contain sulphoraphanes as well as provide cardiovascular, digestive and immune system support.
This grain free, gluten free, dairy free pad thai is a tasty way to boost your diet with cancer fighting cruciferous vegetables. This dish is full of colour which means lots of antioxidants. Don’t forget that ginger is another cancer fighting root and great for digestion. When cooked, the cabbage becomes soft like noodles and makes up for rice noodles. Vegetarians can omit the chicken and add rice or buckwheat noodles.
