I'm Diane Hoch, and this is why is broccoli good for the thyroid. It is true that broccoli contains natural chemicals called goitrogens that can negatively effect your thyroid. Fortunately, the goitrogens in broccoli are inactivated by cooking, so steam, saute or roast your broccoli to continue to get the valuable benefits which is cancer fighting and fantastic antioxidant power of this green vegetable. So let's get started. So what we're going to do is take our broccoli and just cut the top off and you can really leave it in a whole section. If pieces fall off or they are small, you can just break them off nicely and for here, we're going to have a nice head of broccoli and all I have is some water that's steaming. It's so simple. So I've just put some water to boil and I'm going to take the broccoli, place it right in the steamer, close the top and literally wait for not even a minute. So here we are and we just lift the lid and literally you see it's such as short amount of time and we can take our broccoli out and you notice. So here is a beautiful steamed broccoli and you can see the difference of the color and right there is a beautiful piece of broccoli, inactivated goitrogens and a wonderful vegetable for you. So we've all heard of the health benefits of broccoli, cancer fighting, antioxidant power, fiber and vitamin K and A, wonderful for you. So go ahead and eat your vegetables. Yes, broccoli is good for the thyroid.
