Orange juice has 3 times as many calories and 6 TIMES as many carbs than broccoli (assuming you only drink one cup of OJ). Yet, which food do most people rave about for vitamin C? What other myths are you buying into about what you NEED for weight loss and fitness?
Down with a cold or a flu? Stay away from the orange juice and grab the broccoli. That is, IF you’re interested in getting the nutrition you need, losing weight, controlling diabetes and general health. The nutritional data says it all. 1 cup of Broccoli has over 100% of your daily requirement for Vitamin C, and all of 31 calories and 4 net carbs. 1 Cup of OJ checks in similar vitamin C (both are over 100%) but also has about 120 calories, and a whopping 26 net carbs!
Did you know broccoli was an incredible source of vitamin C? How about all of these?:
Did you know drinking lots of orange juice is a great way to get fat and ramp up your blood sugar? Basically, to get that Vitamin C you’re after, you’re eating a candy bar’s worth of carbs every time you grab a “healthy” glass of OJ. Personally, I’ll take a cup of broccoli and a Reese’s Fast Break Bar, but hey, that’s just me. 🙂
This sort of info is critical to build meals that are satisfying and can truly save your diet.
