Luckily, it’s very easy to include broccoli in your diet. If you want a super healthy preparation, you can make detox spinach and broccoli soup, but you can go for a richer preparation as a cheese broccoli creamy soup. You can also replace unhealthy snacks with broccoli bites or include them in a vegetarian lasagna.
