The Nutrition Professor's Prep Smart, Eat Smart Tips:

• To maximize the disease-fighting benefits of garlic, be sure to crush, mince or press it and let it sit for about 10 minutes before exposing it to heat.

• Adding powdered mustard to a cooked cruciferous vegetable like mustard greens provides a needed enzyme for the production of cancer-fighting sulforaphane.  

Serves 1 to 2
