Steamed broccoli is a staple in the vegan diet, and it’s super fast and easy to make. Each serving of this recipe has only 64 calories, but packs in 5 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein and a whopping 275% of your RDV for Vitamin C. A lot of that comes from the lemon juice, which is very high in Vitamin C.
Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable along with kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, cabbage, collard greens, rutabaga and turnips. These veggies are packed with nutrition but low on calories. If you’re trying to lose weight, stock up on these veggies and eat them as much as you can.
