Ever wonder how to get in yourCruciferousveggies without cooking them? I know I have.Why would I want to do this? Well ,with so much talk of how great Cruciferous veggies are for us especially in their ability to protect us from cancer as well as get rid of the excess estrogen in the body it makes sense. We won’t get too deep here but basically these veggies carry in them a metabolite, known as DIM and a compound knonwn as I3c or Indole 3 carbinol. These are the key players in protecting and repairing the DNA.However, how do we intake these amazing cancer fighting vegetables without cooking out their vital nutrients and enzymes? Some people have a challenge with raw cruciferous veggies b/c of a thyroid condition but what if we could keep these veggies in there raw state as much as possible and break them down enough to not effect the thyroid adversely we might be onto something?
Be generous with adding your dressings and massage into the veggies. Next, let this sit for at least 4-6 hours. Then you can just continue to toss and massage the veggies to saturate them well thru out this time.Turn on the Dehydrator to about 115 and allow them to dehydrate at least 6 hours or longer depending on how you love your veggies.Serve these as a side dish or enjoy these any time of the day.
