Broccoli, which is low in calories but rich in nutrients like dietary fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C, is a nutrition powerhouse! Choose bunches that are dark green. Good color indicates high-nutrient value. Florets that are dark green, purplish, or bluish green contain more beta-carotene and vitamin C than paler or yellowing ones. Choose bunches with stalks that are very firm. Add to your next salad, pizza, lasagna, pasta dish, omelet, stir-fry, soup or casserole.
