Let’s talk a little about the benefits of broccoli:
Broccoli is an all-star food with many health benefits. While low in calories, broccoli is rich in essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to fiber. A cup of cooked broccoli offers as much vitamin C as an orange, and is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc too.
Broccoli is a great source of vitamins K and C, a good source of folate (folic acid) and also provides potassium and fiber (extracted from healthyeating.org)
Vitamin K – essential for the functioning of many proteins involved in blood clotting
Vitamin C – builds collagen, which forms body tissue and bone, and helps cuts and wounds heal. It’s a powerful antioxidant and protects the body from damaging free radicals.
Fiber – diets high in fiber promote digestive health. A high fiber intake can also help lower cholesterol.
Potassium – a mineral and electrolyte that is essential for the function of nerves and heart contraction.
Folate – is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in the body.
The benefits of cauliflower are also outstanding (extracted from draxe.com):
Cauliflower is one of the healthiest foods on Earth, and there is good reason why. With its rich supply of health-promoting phytochemicals, high level of anti-inflammatory compounds, and ability to ward off cancer, heart disease, brain disease and even weight gain, it seems there isn’t much cauliflower is unable to do.
Cauliflower is so beneficial due to its special combination of phytochemicals called carotenoids, tocopherols and ascorbic acid — all forms of antioxidants currently being extensively researched in order to understand more about how they keep the body healthy.
Due to recent search, cauliflower is now highly correlated with preventing chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders and various forms of cancers, just to name a few.

Green peas are a popular vegetable. They are also quite nutritious and contain a fair amount of fibre and antioxidants. Additionally, research shows they may help protect against some chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and cancer.
Green peas are one of the best plant-based sources of protein, which is a major reason why they are so filling, along with their high amount of fibre. Eating protein increases the levels of certain hormones in your body that reduce appetite. Protein works together with fibre to slow digestion and promote feelings of fullness.
Green peas have an impressive nutrition profile. Their calorie content is fairly low, with only 62 calories per 1/2-cup (170-gram) serving. About 70% of those calories come from carbs and the rest are provided by protein and a small amount of fat. Furthermore, peas contain just about every vitamin and mineral you need, in addition to a significant amount of fibre. (Extracted from healthline.com)
Beans are a super healthy, super versatile and super affordable food. They are high in antioxidants, fiber, protein, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper and zinc.

The sesame seeds in tahini contain two beneficial types of lignans, sesamin and sesamolin, which are polyphenols found in plants. These lignans can be converted by bacteria in the gut to form mammalian lignans, which may have protective effects against hormone-related diseases such as breast cancer, according to a 2006 study.Sesame seed’s lignanas promote heart health, too. Sesamin and sesamolin can also protect against acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and cardiovascular death, according to this 2011 study. (extracted from organicauthority.com)
