Broccoli recipes do not normally make an appearance in the summer outside of broccoli salad, but we want to offer you a fresh way to include this vitamin-packed food into your diet. Did you know that broccoli is a great source of dietary fiber, which can be cholesterol lowering, weight reducing, and helps control blood sugar? Broccoli has a low glycemic index which is great for those concerned with glucose control. While it's not the traditional color you think of when you are considering Vitamin C food sources, this green vegetable provides over 100 percent of the daily recommended intake of this vitamin! Vitamin C is a great at preventing sickness by boosting your immune system and no one wants to be sick during grilling season!
