Super Broccoli

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.

Portabella Party

Are they portobellos or portabellas? That’s the question of the week. The names were invented in the 1980s to make this rather ungainly mushroom seem glamorous. Which is correct? If mushrooms are male or female, would that determine an “A” or an “O”? And therein lies the problem, because mushrooms can have as many as 36,000 sexes. The supreme court of mushroomland, The Mushroom Council, has ruled that the double “A” version of portabella is the winner.

We’ve got three reasons why you should party with your portabellas:

  1. They’re full of antioxidants, which stimulate and regulate the body’s immune system and fight free radicals in the body.
  2. They’re (surprisingly) the only source of Vitamin D in the produce category, and they also happen to provide Calcium.
  3. They’re deliciously umami and have fantastic texture (subjective). Umami is often described as the savory or meaty ‘mouth-filling’ taste, which a lot of foods in the plant world are missing.
