Broccoli has some serious super powers. Among all of the commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables, these heads stand 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.
FYI broccoli 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, unless you’re making broccoli mash.
