|The answer is no - I could NOT fit the whole thing in my mouth.|
A while ago, a couple of commercials came out in Canada (not sure about the US of A) promoting the miracle that is broccoli. They make me giggle and not just 'cause the florets are tickling my nostrils.
According to Wikipedia, the knowers of all things everywhere, broccoli is a member of the cabbage family and "Since the Roman Empire, broccoli has been considered a uniquely valuable food among Italians". I don't know if that last part is true but I like it. However, I'm not Italian so I can't speak on behalf of an entire nation of people. This green delight is full of Vitamin Cm which is not just found in oranges! It also contains much needed fibre (healthy colons are a must!) and calcium - you don't have to drink tons of milk to get calcium; it's found in plant sources too! And Mommikins and the cats can certainly attest to the statement "Broccoli consumption is also associated with malodorous flatulence". I'm sorry but its true.
