How to tell if broccoli is cooked
Current nutritional labeling only indicates the macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals) contained in foods, leaving out a group of enormous relevance for our health: polyphenols, among which we find flavonoids (which give fruits and vegetables their characteristic colors: red, blue, orange, purple, yellow…) and other non-flavonoid polyphenols such as resveratrol and lignans.
Polyphenols do not provide us with calories, nor can their absence cause a deficiency, as is the case with vitamins and minerals, but this does not mean that we should do without them, since their effects are very beneficial for our organism. These compounds have a great antioxidant power and are, in general, protectors of the cardiovascular system, anti-inflammatory, immune system boosters, anticarcinogenic, antihypertensive and cholesterol reducers, among many other things.
For example, you’ve probably heard that eating carrots improves eyesight. This is due to the flavonoids beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are also present in foods such as pumpkin and sweet potatoes, and even in other foods that are not yellow or orange, such as peas. These flavonoids protect against UV exposure and reduce age-related macular degeneration, improving the health of our eyes.
What happens if I eat yellow broccoli?
Keep yellow broccoli as far away as possible. If you see that the florets have a yellowish tint -sometimes caused by mold-, it means it has spoiled. The perfect color is dark green, when it is fresh and fit for consumption. In addition to the color, the stem can tell us if the vegetable is good.
When is broccoli no longer useful?
The color of broccoli says a lot about its freshness, always choose those with a deep dark green color. In case of having a light green tone in some parts indicates that it is not yet ready to eat or if it shows a yellow color indicates that it is a broccoli that is no longer fresh.
What happens if I eat bad broccoli?
First of all, it should be noted that canaries are granivores, that is, their diet will be based mainly on grains. Although it is also true that they should eat other elements such as fruits and vegetables.
The birdseed should be the fundamental food of the canaries, a seed rich in carbohydrates that will have to be mixed with other seeds that provide a good supply of proteins and the rest of nutrients for our canary.
On the other hand, it is necessary that the canary eats vegetables and fruits to complete its diet, since they will provide basic vitamins and minerals for its health. You can give your canary: lettuce, cabbage, carrots, spinach, apples, oranges, bananas…

I love brightly colored foods that get their vibrancy naturally, and one of my favorites is orange. Not only because of the beauty of its tones, but because many of my favorite foods are orange, such as oranges and tangerines, pumpkin, carrots or sweet potatoes. At home we have always enjoyed a constant supply of citrus fruits thanks to the family orchards, so I indulged my passion for them without any restraint. Until one day I realized that my skin had turned slightly orange, I had carotenemia.
Being white-skinned, I probably would never have noticed it on my own. It was at a doctor’s office, where I was for other, unrelated reasons, when he suddenly stared at me, cupped my palms and asked, “Do you eat a lot of oranges?” Surprised, I nodded: “Well, slow down a bit because you are turning orange”. And indeed, an excess intake of beta-carotene can also be harmful.
Vitamin C deficiency is associated with feather-destroying behaviors such as chewing the ends of feathers, excessive preening, feather plucking, and other forms of self-mutilation.If our parrot engages in any of these behaviors, we should assess both its diet and environment: the causes could be boredom, fatigue, or another health problem. If the cause of the problem is an unbalanced diet, we should supplement our parrot in vitamin C with broccoli, peppers of all kinds, kiwi and cherry.Be careful that fresh fruit does not represent more than 15 percent of its total diet.

Hello Elizabeth, we believe that the most appropriate thing to do is to visit a veterinarian specialized in exotic animals to examine him, determine why he does not want to eat and what food is the most appropriate. Best regards
