This is a fabulous recipe for Broccoli Cheddar Bites. They are easy to pull together and loaded with all kinds of good nutrition. And, even better they taste delicious. So try this recipe tonight. Broccoli is a member of the cabbage family, a group of vegetables that offer a broad range of really important health benefits. Keep this group of foods in your family’s eating plan, and try to eat something from this group several times each week. What this group of foods has to offer is glucosinolate phytonutrients, a real mouthful to say, but of great help and support to our good health.

These phyto-nutrients can help lower cholesterol, and more importantly, detoxify our bodies of the many toxins that we take in each day. As well, of course, broccoli includes plenty of vitamins and minerals. The combination of vitamin A and C found in broccoli may be of extra importance to people suffering low levels of vitamin D. The vitamins, A and C, help vitamin D to work better in our bodies. So if you are supplementing with vitamin D for any reason, consider lots of broccoli in your diet.

Broccoli is also a good anti-inflammatory and appears to have some positive impacts on allergies, although research is light in this area. But it may be that, in the future, broccoli is found to play a role in helping alleviate allergies of various kinds. The broccoli in this recipe is paired with a great cheese. A few other ingredients are added, and the whole recipe gets split up and baked as muffins. That makes it an easy meal to hand out to the kids or to let them grab as they race out of the door for the day. But you can feel glad that they have something nutritious and delicious in their hand for the morning. Enjoy this dish soon, won’t you?
