Broccoli

This fantastic food is a great source of fiber while detoxing and restoring the body. It is best to enjoy slightly steamed.

Brilliant Broccoli

How to Choose and Keep

Choose the florets that are closely fitting together with no yellow. Keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks. It is best to not wash until you are ready to use.

Preparation

Make sure to disconnect the florets and clean well. Steaming is the best way to cook. It only takes about 5 minutes to cook. I do not recommend to do in the microwave because of the micro “waves”.
