    Cruciferous vegetables (sometimes referred to as cole crops in the USA) are vegetables which belong to the brassicaceae/mustard family.

    Documented Benefits:
    These vegetables have been shown to be of benefit in cancer prevention, immune stimulation, blood sugar regulation and hormone balance (specifically estrogen) [1].

    Some of the more popular vegetables from this family include:

    • Broccoli
    • Brussels sprouts
    • Cabbage (green and red)
    • Cauliflower
    • Bok choy
    • Collards
    • Kale
    • Kohlrabi

    Ideas for Integration:
    From my experience the easiest way to consistently eat several portions of cruciferous vegetables is to buy pre-washed coleslaw. Bags of pre-washed coleslaw are sold at most super markets and are fairly inexpensive. However, this may not be an option in all countries.
