Broccoli and cauliflower

Why add broccoli to your plate? Well, it’s a nutrition powerhouse: broccoli is low in calories and rich in essential vitamins and minerals, including fiber. One cup of cooked broccoli offers as much vitamin C as an orange, and is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.

Cauliflower is a perfect side kick! Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. It is a very good source of choline, dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, phosphorus, and biotin. Eat up!
