Taking daily doses of high quality multi-vitamins and multi-minerals is certainly worthwhile, but don’t overlook the importance of real food to ensure your body is getting the nutrients you need. Here are 5 veggies that can have tremendous benefits to your health that should be consumed at least several times a week:

 

Broccoli

Broccoli is one of the veggies that should be eaten every day, or at least several times a week to provide a valuable intake of calcium, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and iron, as well as vitamins A, C, K and other essential nutrients. Studies have shown broccoli to have powerful cancer fighting properties. Broccoli can be rinsed and eaten raw in salads, steamed and eaten as a side dish or baked into casseroles.
