I love Broccoli! It was one vegetable in my garden that I did NOT give away...Mine, mine, all mine! You should love broccoli too, and I'll tell you why.

Broccoli is full of nutrients and phytochemicals thought to reduce cancer risk. Broccoli helps maintain bone structure, boosts the immune system and supports the digestive system.

Broccoli is an excellent vegetable to eat if you are fighting a cold or flu bug due to its high vitamin C content. A bowl of steamed or cup of juiced broccoli may be more potent than orange juice.

Broccoli is rich in folate and carotenoids, including betacarotene and luten (great for the eyes). It is also rich in vitamin K and has adequate amounts of zinc, manganese, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, sulforaphane and indole-carbinol.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can.
