Behold the WONDER-VEG: Broccoli

Field GoodsOut of the BagLeave a Comment

Broccoli has some serious super powers. Amongst all of the commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables, these heads stands out as the most concentrated source of vitamin C. PLUS: 250 calories of this green stuff (about 12% of a 2,000-calorie diet) will give you the full daily requirement of fiber. Broc is very easy to overcook. Once it’s bright green, STOP COOKING! It’ll turn to mush and you’ll start losing all those great nutrients. Your florets should have a lil’ crunch to it. Enjoy!
