Nutrition trends expert Max Lugavere is back with The Doctors to introduced them to three new food finds that he says "have the potential to be true game changers in your health!"
If you were wondering, this is what baby broccoli looks like. We know broccoli is a vegetable with lots of nutritional benefits but these baby sprouts knock it out of the park. They are incredibly high in a powerful potential cancer-fighter, found in all cruciferous vegetables, but it is concentrated up to one hundred times in broccoli sprouts. One pound of this equals one hundred pounds of broccoli in terms of its anti-cancer potential.
Max describes the sprouts as having a sharp radish flavor and suggests adding them to salads or sprinkling on top of omelets. They are found in most supermarkets in the produce section or easy to grow at home! Max says to just add some broccoli seeds to a jar, rinse and store, and you will have sprouts in about three days! ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says these may be one of his favorite things Max has ever brought onto the show! Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon agrees and OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry comments on these alfalfa sprout lookalikes, "I don't know what alfalfa sprouts taste like but this is good!"
Mustard Seed Powder
Cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts, all contain some of that cancer-fighting chemical found in the broccoli sprouts, but when these veggies are cooked they lose their ability to produce it. Mustard seed powder is the magic dust that allows these vegetables to regain the ability to create that chemical! Not only does it create it, but the bioavailability increases by fourfold!
Sprinkle mustard seed powder onto cruciferous veggies after they are cooked. Max says it adds some spiciness, but it's not going to taste like you are dunking your vegetables into mustard. Mustard seed powder also is a great source of trace minerals like magnesium and zinc. Did you know that mustard itself is a cruciferous vegetable? Look for mustard greens, a great source of fiber, in the produce section.
Bil-what?! This is a healthier take on beef jerky, popular in southern African countries. Beef jerky is typically smoked and full of added sugar but biltong is airdried and made with just coriander, salt and pepper. Vinegar is also used to cure the meat. Dr. Ordon likes it more than expected and even Dr. Nita is pleasantly surprised! "You did good, Max," she says!
