Fruits and Vegetables to Eat During the Winter Months

Your guide to great produce for the season – and preparation tips to please kids

(page 2 of 9)

Broccoli

Good Body Benefits: Here's a superfood for you! Low in calories but high in nutrients, broccoli contains an alphabet of vitamins. It's known to aid in cancer prevention and to reduce cholesterol. It also seems to have another added benefit to your nervous system: The high potassium level keeps your brain going strong.

How to Prepare: Broccoli can be deceptively difficult to cook. Overcooking means mushy veggies. Undercook, and it becomes a bit too crunchy. But you can easily steam broccoli in the microwave. Cut into small pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Add in 1/4 cup water and cover the bowl with a plate. Cook on high for 3-4 minutes. Remove the plate carefully (it'll be hot!). Mudge likes to add broccoli to omelets.
