Recipe For The Best & Easisest Broccoli Ever

I’ve talked about vegetables before, and how important it is to eat them.  Not only because of all the vitamins and minerals you get from them, but also because of the thermic effect they have. ……….  When you eat vegetables, you burn a ton of calories.

Yeahhhh!  Isn’t that awesome?  You can burn calories by eating!

The thing is that most people don’t like vegetables, or “don’t know they like vegetables”.  

Most people don’t know how to prepare them so that they actually taste great.

And I get it!  Its a pain sometimes to cook vegetables every day.  Its a lot easier to just throw some rice and chicken on a plate.  But then you aren’t getting all the benefits from eating.

So here is what you do!

You make all your vegetables on 2 days.  That’s what I do.  I make a ton of vegetables on Mondays and then I cook again on Wednesday or Thursday.  One of my favorites is my Garlicky Squash & Zucchini.  The recipe is on My Pinterest Board, along with the rest of my recipes.  So make sure to get there now and click on “FOLLOW ALL” so you never miss one of my recipes.

Today I am sharing with you one of my other favorite vegetable dishes.  Actually, my hubby requested this for Valentines Day.  How about them apples?  LOL

Check it out, yes, thats a sippy cup there….. Real romantic, with our 3 year old!  Its ok, we enjoyed it anyways.  And we also enjoyed having some steak along with the broccoli mid week πŸ™‚

It takes about 15 minutes to make and I usually make about 3 bouquets of broccoli at a time so that it lasts me for a few meals.  I tend to spice them up for different meals with other ingredients, just to switch it up.

If you add a few spices, herbs, nuts, drizzles, it can completely change the taste.  

I have a ton of VIDEOS on My YouTube Channel that show and tell you how to use all those ingredients and more to make healthy meals without excess calories.  You will love them all.

Ok, here is this divine and super easy to make healthy recipe for broccoli.  And you should also try my “Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad” from My Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipe Book (over 300 healthy recipes). Its so good, Im telling you, my hubby is very picky and hates veggies and he likes both of these.
