1. Broccoli

Save it: Broccoli stalks
Peeled broccoli stalks have a wonderful, tender texture similar to asparagus. Best of all, they’re packed with vitamin C, an antioxidant needed for proper eye function.

Eat it: Peel away the tough outer layer, thinly slice and add to stir-fries, scrambled eggs or pasta dishes. You can also slice peeled stalks into matchsticks and add them to a crudité platter, or shave and toss into salad or slaw.
