Is it true that all the nutrition in broccoli is only contained in the florets and that the stalks are nutritionally equivalent to iceberg lettuce?

Insert loud buzzer sound HERE.
That is 100 percent incorrect.
Although broccoli florets house most of the vegetable's phytochemicals and antioxidants, the stalks make their fair share of contributions.
That's where you'll find higher concentrations of vitamin C, fiber, and folate.
Always aim to use as much of a fruit or vegetable as you can. This means eating apple peels, sweet potato skins, and broccoli stalks!
