Friday Food Focus- Broccoli

Morning All,

So.... I've decided that there is just too much good food out there with lots of hidden benefits and a lot of us, including me take this for granted and half the time don't know what we are actually eating and just eat it because we have been told it is good for us. Am I right?? So every Friday I am going to write a post 'Friday Food Focus' to explain to you why you should be eating that type of food (If you aren't already) and post recipe ideas to help spice up your meals.
