Interestingly, even though doctors will not specifically say what diet to follow when you are living with Multiple Sclerosis, one thing that I have heard quite frequently is that there is some evidence that cruciferous vegetables are beneficial. So, the same doctor that was pointing me to the donut store was also telling me to eat more Brussels sprouts…talk about mixed messages!
Cruciferous vegetables include things in the cabbage family like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale. I don’t know about you, but I get really tired of eating just steamed broccoli or cauliflower and to be honest I am not such a fan of kale salads (if you are by all means go for it!). To ensure I eat these types of vegetables, I will use them as a base for a sauce, which yields a very creamy, nutritious, and delicious alternative. If this sounds interesting, I have added three of my favorites to my recipe site: Cauliflower Alfredo, Broccoli Pesto, and Kale Chips.
