Broccoli is always high on healthy grocery food list. The delicate taste of broccoli is similar to cauliflower, making it an excellent side dish for those who love to eat vegetables.

Broccoli is very rich in vitamin C. Eating 100 g of broccoli provides 30 mg of vitamin C, which is well over your daily needs.

It is also high in dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin E, folate and beta-carotene (a compound that our body converts to vitamin A). Broccoli also contains a compound called sulforaphane (which helps fight cancer in humans). When choosing broccoli, choose those that have bright blue-green heads and tightly closed clusters of florets. The stalk and stems should be firm and not woody or soft to the touch. Don’t buy broccoli with yellow or damaged florets.
