This means families are losing up to 40 percent of their food as it travels from farm to table. While it may not be possible for your family to eliminate food waste entirely, there are simple hacks your family can use to reduce its food waste footprint—one of these being to “go further with food” and make the most of your produce. Broccoli is one of those foods you can use all of instead of throwing scraps in the trash.
This healthier broccoli cheese soup still tastes just as rich and comforting as the higher calorie classic version. Broccoli can help prevent many types of cancer, improve our digestive system, lower cholesterol detoxifies the body and maximize vitamin and mineral intake.
