If You Hate Vegetables, Here’s the Only One You Need to Eat

Everyone knows vegetables are good for you.  But if you HATE them, a doctor in the U.K. claims you can get away with only eating ONE TYPE.

A doctor on the BBC in England recently suggested that if you only eat one vegetable . . . it should be BROCCOLI.

It’s largely because it promotes healthy gut bacteria, which helps your immune system.  And healthy gut bacteria has even been linked to a lower risk of mental-health issues.

Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable.  (kroo-SIFF-er-us)  It’s in the same family as kale, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts.  And those types of vegetables have also been linked to lower rates of cancer.  Especially colon cancer and lung cancer.

It might have to do with a compound called sulforaphane.  (sulfur-AFF-ane)  Researchers have found evidence that it can stop a certain enzyme that helps cancer cells grow.

And broccoli also has a ton of vitamin K in it, which helps you absorb calcium and makes your bones stronger.

So if you hate vegetables, maybe just try to choke down some broccoli.  And if you LOVE broccoli, keep doing what you’re doing.  But obviously mixing in a few other vegetables is even better.


Hummus Shakes Are Now a Thing?


I’m just not sure how someone could be sitting around one day, drinking a delicious milkshake, and say to themselves, “Yeah, this Oreo shake is good, but you know what flavor I REALLY want?  Hummus.”

A small fast food chain called The Hummus & Pita Company just added HUMMUS SHAKES to their menu.

They’re not made with ice cream . . . they’re made with hummus ingredients like chickpeas and tahini, plus frozen bananas, dates, almond milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.

And you can get them in flavors like chocolate, butter pecan, and strawberry too.

We searched for people’s reviews online, but we couldn’t really find any . . . so maybe no one’s ordered one yet?

I don’t know, man.  I don’t invent the stuff, I just tell you about it.
