There’s A New Superfood in Town.
Broccoli leaves, the young, tender leaves of the broccoli plant picked before the florets are ready for harvest, could be this year’s new superfood. At least that’s what its California grower, Foxy Organic, claims. Dubbed BroccoLeaf, it has twice the calcium of kale, yields more liquid for juicing, and, some say, tastes sweeter. The green is being considered for sale at area Wegmans and Whole Foods. —Stefanie Gans
