Quick Bite

Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamins C and K. In just one cup of the raw veggie you get 135 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C and 116 percent of your daily intake of vitamin K. It’s also a good source of folate, with 14 percent of your recommended daily intake. 

Don’t feel guilty about dipping your broccoli into ranch dressing. Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, meaning it won’t get absorbed unless it’s consumed with fat. Eating your veggies raw may mean you’re not getting all the nutrients you could be. Other fat-soluble vitamins include vitamins A, D and E. Don’t overdo it on the ranch dressing, however: One serving of ranch dressing is two tablespoons.
