germogli-di-broccoli.jpgToday must be broccoli for health day! Having just posted a broccoli smoothie recipe, I came across this article by Kat Gal of extolling the health benefits of broccoli, and how to best enjoy it. I love broccoli properly prepared, but it was news to me that it brought so much goodness.

Too many of us were introduced to a version of broccoli which gave it an unfair bad reputation. As Kat Gal says…

… a lot of people don’t think of broccoli as a “cool” vegetable. Besides its bad reputation, many people only know the overcooked broccoli in college cafeterias. Others only use it as a quick side dish, microwaving cheap, frozen bags. Both versions are mushy and flavorless.

But believe me, eating fresh broccoli is absolutely delicious when it’s served cooked or raw.
