When it comes to eating healthy, we’re always on the hunt for lesser-known powerhouse veggies to incorporate into our diets. We asked neurologist and mbg Collective member David Perlmutter, M.D., what food he wants us all to eat in 2020, and he answered with a resounding (and fairly surprising) vegetable.
“We’ve known for a long time that broccoli is good food for us,” Perlmutter said in an Instagram post. “It helps out the body’s antioxidant function; it helps us reduce inflammation; it helps with detoxification.”
But he’s not pushing regular old broccoli. Rather, Perlmutter wants us to be eating broccoli sprouts.
