Sulforaphane. Pharmaceutical companies have studied it for years because of its very positive effects on cancer. You get it when you chew raw broccoli because then two compounds in the broccoli come together and create this new compound. Even better if you chew the raw broccoli with mustard. Broccoli sprouts have 10x the amount of sulforaphane as the mature plant. Grind up a small amount of the sprouts as the first ingredient in your smoothie, but not too much because the taste is terrible.
I take Tahini and vegetable broth and blend in a blender. Then put the solution in a large bowl with a little nutmeg and allspice, cut up the sweet potato into bite-sized pieces with the skin left on (the skin has a lot of the potato’s nutrition), and tumble all the sweet potato pieces so that they are coated with the solution. Then I put in a large amount of cinnamon so that the sweet potato pieces are heavily coated with the cinnamon.

Make a small change for better health outcomes in your diet each day. Can be even a very tiny change, but is nevertheless a clear improvement health-wise. But do it every single day without fail. Use some kind of reminder in the morning in order to decide from the get-go what the small change will be for that day. If you miss a day, make 2 small changes the next day to catch up.
In 12 months, your overall diet will be transformed almost completely for vastly better health.
Like the age-old saying goes, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. So it is with diet, also.
