And for fibers on tougher stems, you just ‘maneuver’ them out of your mouth while eating, like one would with some seeds when eating cherries, for example.

I’ve been enjoying the stalks since I’ve been out of high school, out of the family house. Grow up.

My kids like the florets, not the stems –yeah, more for me!

Ha ha, no really…I would have (and just washed it off).

I think it’s good for people to experience poverty, more or less, so that they can be grateful and not wasteful. We are so used to our modern conveniences that we take everything for granted.

As a side note to everyone, that’s not real olive oil! None of those major brands are. Go to truthinoliveoil.com.

But then I was watching my future mother in law make broccoli and SHE THREW THE WHOLE THING AWAY! I was horrified. My parents raised me always peeling it and cutting “broccoli pennies”.

I NEVER throw it away.

Trim off the outer layer. Large dice the inner part. Toss chunks into the chili as it is cooking.
