|By far, broccoli is my favorite veggie!|
1. Broccoli contains potassium and magnesium, both helpful in controlling blood pressure. The potassium also helps maintain a healthy nervous system and brain functions, as well as helps muscle growth!

3. Your bones will benefit from the calcium and vitamin k found in broccoli. They'll stay strong and healthy and will have a lessened chance of developing osteoporosis.
4. Trying to lose weight? Look no further than broccoli! It has a high fiber content so it can help prevent constipation (and helps keep your system cleaned out!), helps digestion, lower blood sugar, and curbs overeating. Bonus: a cup of broc has almost half the amount of protein as a cup of rice or corn and half the calories!

Who knew something so pretty could be so good for you?!
Enjoy your Hulk Trees! (as Boy Lego calls his broccoli, ha ha!)
