According to "Eating on the Wild Side" by Jo Robinson, broccoli loses 80% of it's nutrients after one week. She highly recommends eating broccoli within 24 hrs. to get it's nutrient goodness. OTOH - she writes the cauliflower hardly loses any nutrients after one week. So, eat broccoli right away, and save the cauliflower for another day. For best nutrition, the author recommends cooking broccoli by steaming for just 3 min. I've done that, and it is really good. Fresh broccoli cooked right after harvest is very sweet and flavorful.
