Vitamin C galore.

Despite all our protesting, it seems that summer might be coming to an end. That means you can expect a plethora of horrible things in the near future, including cold season. You are probably thinking it’s a good time to increase your morning orange juice intake, but we have another suggestion.

Because of a trending post on the TIL (today I learned) subreddit, we’ve learned that broccoli has nearly twice the vitamin C of oranges by weight. For this reason, we’re recommending you avoid citrus overload and just eat a ton of broccoli this cold season.

Here, seven delicious recipes that could, theoretically, help you avoid catching a cold this year. Ready, set, broccoli diet.
