A serving of steamed broccoli offers more than a day’s worth of vitamin C, as well as 15 percent of your daily fiber needs, vitamin A, and heart-healthy folate and potassium, all in a low-calorie package. A similar-sized serving of cauliflower offers a bit less nutrition but still supplies fiber and 14 percent of daily folate needs, plus nearly a day’s worth of vitamin C. Choose orange-hued cauliflower for about 25 times more vitamin A than the familiar white variety.
