This is the one that inspired them all.
“Choose Broccoli” was the first topic I thought of when I was getting the inspiration for the 40 day political health journey. I thought, “how funny would it be to see a political sign in the front of someone’s house that said Choose Broccoli?”
Just enough to make someone laugh and hopefully wonder what it was all about.
Broccoli – the vegetable you either grew up to love or hate! Some like the florets some like the stems. Even if you didn’t love them your mom always made you take at least 1 bite.
But why was she so adamant about you eating that treelike green thing? Not only because broccoli is easy to make and a relatively cheap vegetable to buy, but also because it’s packed with nutrients! Fiber, protein, vitamin C, B-6, A, potsssium, iron, calcium, and magnesium. Not to mention it is a cruciferous vegetable.
This group of veggies has been getting more research lately for having nutrients that aid in fighting cancer! You would be hard pressed to find a better bang for your buck than what you get with broccoli!
Eat it, love it, and enjoy the benefits!
