Broccoli Florets for a Healthy Snack
florets are a quick and healthy snack that contains vital nutrients
for your body. Broccoli is an excellent source of the vitamins K,
C, and A, as well as folate and fiber. Broccoli is a very good source
of phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and the vitamins B6 and E.
You can either choose pre-cut broccoli florets or regular stalks.
When choosing broccoli, look for fresh-looking, light green stalks.
The heads should be compact and dark green with some purple tinge.
Wash each cluster with cold water and store in the refrigerator
in a plastic container or bag for up to four days. You can even
get adventurous and try one of the new varieties of broccoli such
as broccolini, a smaller, milder, sweeter variety.
Broccoli florets are perfect for dipping. However, make sure to
choose healthy dipping sauces that are low in fat, sugar and calories.
My favorite dipping sauces are made by Walden Farms. They are made
from the worlds finest aged vinegars, dozens of fresh ground
herbs and spices, natural flavors and ice cold, triple filtered
water. They are all calorie free, sugar free and fat free!
