  • Broccoli Rice Casserole

    Published on October 7, 2015
    Michigan-grown broccoli is available July through October. Broccoli chosen for freezing is processed at its peak ripeness, a time when it is most nutrient packed and most delicious. Frozen broccoli may be even more healthful than some of the fresh produce sold in grocery stores since the product will degrade over time. Americans typically eat only one-third of the recommended daily intake (three servings instead of nine) of fruits and vegetables due to availability and cost. Preserving broccoli and other fruits and vegetables by freezing them when they are at their nutritional peak allows people to use them throughout the year.

  • Broccoli Salad

  • Honey Fruit Spread

    Published on September 9, 2016
    Honey is a great natural sweetener to add to any of your favorite dishes. It contains throat-soothing properties and nutrients that give you energy. Michigan State University Extension provides education that helps people buy and prepare healthy, budget-friendly foods as well as live a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Because honey is sweeter than sugar, use less of it for the same sweet taste. Honey is full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making it not only a great natural source of energy but also a boost for your immune system. Pollination occurs when bees fly from flower to flower, helping fruits and vegetables to reproduce. Farmers markets often obtain honey from bees that pollinate local crops. Much of the honey you buy from the supermarket is highly filtered to give it a clear appearance. Read the label to find out where the honey comes from and whether it is 100 percent pure honey.

Add them to your meals in a variety of ways – top off cereal or pancakes, add them to muffins or waffles, or just enjoy them one at a time.
