Broccoli is just good stuff, why worry about slightly different nutritional values of a food that is super healthy?
I just tried those zip lock steam bags today for the first time, pretty awesome. Throw in your broccoli, some shrimps, black olives and sun dried tomatos, 3 minutes and you have a great meal. I do wonder about the plastic thing though…[/quote]
Agreed. I don’t typically even count the calories from Broccoli. It’s not really worth noting or worrying about. Just eat it already.
I love those steamer bags. They work so well and are just too darned convenient. I’m sold on them. I believe one of the authors wrote in an article that there isn’t much of a concern about the plastic from those bags because they are heat tempered or something like that.
EDIT: Here’s the article where Shugart mentioned them.
