We talk about the dangers of plastic all the time.  But, let’s face it…it’s everywhere! We’re exposed to phthalates (a dangerous compound in plastic) on a daily basis. Sadly, it’s in the lotions we use, water we drink and the air we breathe.  What’s equally important as educating on how to avoid plastic, is how to detoxify from it!   According to the Institute of Functional Medicine, consuming 2+ servings of cruciferous vegetables a day will speed up the detoxification process of dangerous phthalates in the body.  Vegetables in the cruciferous family include cabbage, broccoli, kale, collard greens and brussels sprouts to name a few!  One serving equals 1/2 cup of cooked vegetables.  This dish will make it super easy for you to do that, it’s so hard to stop eating this delicious mix of brussels sprouts, butternuts squash, pecans and dried cranberries!
