“Broccoli has gotten a bad rap in the diet world. People are just so sick of eating steamed broccoli. Instead of steaming, roast it with some garlic and Parmesan, which give it a new life and take eating it from a chore to a delight. From The Most Decadent Diet Ever cookbook by Devin Alexander, author of The Biggest Loser Cookbook.”
