I just had fresh brocolli for the first time.
lol I bought a stalk at the store and cut off the florettes and steamed them. SOOO GOOD! After abandoning my old eating habits, I've been trying all these new foods and I feel wonderful! I never even tried brocolli until last year, and it was frozen. Fresh is so much better. I love my new lifestyle. No turning back!

Steamed broccoli is ****, you've gotta eat it raw.

I like steamed broccoli, but I agree that it is WAY more awesome raw! Although I prefer most vegetables raw...

Anyhow, congratulations on branching out. There are tons of wonderful, nutritious foods out there!

Thanks, AddieB! I love trying new foods now. I used to live on junk food, NOT anymore!

My favourite way to prepare brussels sprouts is to cut them in half/quarters lightly coat them in olive oil with a little salt and pepper and roast them in the oven until they are slightly browned. So tasty!

I love broccoli in almost any form. Steaming or roasting veggies is a great way to enjoy them while still keeping them pretty healthy and unadulterated. Really brings out some nice flavours.

Yes! You must try them this way. You'll love it, I promise. Isn't it fun to try new things and discover how much you love them?

My preferred way of eating broccoli is cutting up the florets and sauteeing them in a pan with rice, fresh parsley (vital!), chopped onion, some vegan margarine, salt, pepper; then toss all that into a bell pepper and put it in the oven for half an hour. YUMMY. This is how I got my granny to eat broccoli, and she HATES broccoli usually.
