Healthy Baked Garlic Broccoli

Taylor watching football – and eating fresh, baked broccoli!

When you think of football – you usually associate it with hot wings, potato chips, pretzels and beer. I bet you never picture broccoli. However, you should! It’s not good to feed our bodies junk.

You feel like what you eat. That statement is basically a truth. Believe it.  So, if you eat junk, you will feel like junk. Plain and simple.

Last weekend, instead of baking potato skins or packaged French fries, I dared to cook something different. Something healthy – and it was delicious. Hints of salt, broccoli and pepper, this oven broccoli was mouth watering good!

It’s so simple to make these little food parcels of goodness. I’ve been missing out – and you are too, if you have yet to try this roasted broccoli. Gluten free, healthy and yummy – a threefold score! Image

You will need: broccoli, 3 tbsp of olive oil, 2 tbsp. of garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste! You can adjust these ingredients to your taste as well. You may want to add a little more oil – go right ahead!

First, place your broccoli florets in big mixing bowl. Pour in the olive oil and garlic powder. I generally mix the broccoli with the olive oil (make sure it is coated) and then mix in the garlic – making sure every little green tree gets hit with garlic goodness.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of your broccoli – and preheat the oven to 375.

I lined a cookie sheet with foil and dumped out my seasoned broccoli on the tray, and just popped them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. Leave in longer, if you want a crunchier texture.

This is heaven-sent and so good for you. Replace those football snacks with this healthy alternative. Your body will be cheering you on!
