Detox Broccoli Bread
Daily detoxification processes happen throughout your body at the cellular level. And it all starts with adequate nutrients intake.
– A 50 grams serve of pepitas provides close to the daily requirement for magnesium, together with a significant contribution to the requirement for iron, zinc and manganese.
– Broccoli is rich in sulforaphane, fiber as well as bioavailable folate that further enhance the natural detoxification processes.
– The broccoli bread is a low glycaemic index recipe. While avoiding blood glucose spikes, you manage the redox reactions by-product of detoxification.
