Go whole with your veggies
The best way to preserve nutrients in your foods is to eat the entire thing, says Ilana Muhlstein, RDN, a registered dietitian in Los Angeles. “People frequently cut the broccoli florets off the stalk and discard the rest,” she says. “The broccoli stalk is like eating pure fiber, essential for keeping you full, regular, and heart healthy.”
Tip: Consider shredding broccoli stalks raw into a salad or soup.
