    Great post! I always knew that broccoli was good for you, but I had no idea of how beneficially it actually is. Another good way to get the benefits from broccoli without having to make it part of your meals; is by blending them up in your smoothies so that you can mask the taste of it with the other ingredients!

    WOW the beet sounds like a wonder food, it appears to full of vitamins, minerals and has a huge range of health benefits. You don’t mention in your post where these claims are proven. Is there any clinical studies proving these.
    If these are facts the I will be eating beets by the bucket load. Not sure about the hair dye idea, what colour would it be? Purple? Thanks for sharing. Cheers Kev
