It’s the anti-inflammatory benefits of sulfur compounds in broccoli and curcumin in turmeric that make this recipe super anti-inflammaging. “Inflammaging” is the new buzzword in wellness circles describing the long-term, low-grade inflammation that comes with aging, which is where we all seem to be headed and what we are seeking to suppress as much as we can. We cannot stop aging, but we can certainly slow it down and enjoy the ride when it is under our control.

I often make a double batch of this recipe and keep leftovers in the fridge to use as toppings on a salad or a bowl of black bean spaghetti. While I am on a 21 day hormone reset, I love to include this recipe once a week, which puts me on a great path to metabolize my food more efficiently, clear up my skin and give me an extra bounce in my step.

Because the health benefits of all colorful vegetables are so high, I like to keep my plate 80% vegetables and 20% protein. Most people I know and restaurants I frequent turn this formula upside down as well as include a lot of simple carbs (rice, pasta and bread) leaving vegetables as a side dish or garnish. I can’t tell you how many times I see people clear their plates and leave the greens. It drives me CRAZY! I certainly hope this will turn around one day, so I can stop ordering 3 – 4 side dishes or doubling up on salad, just to keep hacking my age while dining out!
