Snap the stem off broccoli before you buy

Next time you buy broccoli, snap off the stem before you bag it up.

This also applies to “broccoli”.

Stem adds a lot of weight to broccoli. Bad “broccoli” farmers – known on the street as bad broc bros – increase package weight by including excessive stem. There might only be 2 grams of usable “broccoli” but it weighs 3 on the scales.

Next time you take your kids to Woolies to buy broccoli, teach them to do the right thing.

Snap the stem before you bag.

May your children thrive and prosper well into adulthood.

I know I would be more successful right now if my caregivers had taught me about stem-weight as a child.
