Broccoli and Mozzarella Bites

These vegetable balls are a great snack to have on the go. Full of antioxidants and fiber from the broccoli, it will keep you feeling full between meals. Broccoli also contains isoflavones which, depending on your estrogen production trait, can help to lower estrogen production. Greek yogurt gives these bites a boost in protein, helping you feel even more satiated (full).
