Wait, who doesn’t like broccoli? Broccoli has flavor, unlike some of the vegetables people tried to force down our throats as kids. I mean, I tried Brussels sprouts once as an adult, and I was like, “Wait a minute,…A few years ago, a guy told me the most interesting reason why broccoli is good for you. You see, broccoli does not want to be eaten. It wants to go on being broccoli. Thus it has evolved to contain a very mild toxin - sufficient to deter many plant-eating animals, but not enough to harm humans. HOWEVER. When you eat broccoli, your body has to gear up to fight off that toxin. You can do it, but it still means your system has to pump you up a bit. This pumping up gets your immune system going like gangbusters. (The reflex/kickback a lot of people have to broccoli is your body picking up on the fact that this toxin is in there.) I never ate broccoli a whole lot before that, but afterward I was like, I can respect a vegetable that’s trying to kill me. Broccoli plants are like the Borgias of the produce section. So now I eat it all the time. It’s like, hahahaha, trying to murder me? FUCK YOU, BROCCOLI! ::chomp chomp chomp chomp:: Those who have been turned off by casseroles, etc. - try just roasting or grilling it, with lemon juice and/or olive oil and/or garlic, plus salt and pepper. You may be pleasantly surprised.
One thing to also consider is your bitterness sensitivity (this can sort of be tested with PTC paper if anyone’s familiar with it. It tastes absolutely nasty to me, but some of my friends say it just tastes like paper to them.) People have different bitterness (PTC) sensitivities depending on the bitterness gene variants they have. Broccoli is one of those veggies that tastes more awful if you have a certain variant/mutation (though it’s not one of the most bitter ones). I personally don’t gag at broccoli, but I strongly prefer it cooked/steamed than raw.
you are so right, the show became so dark lately. It pisses me off regarding gif making stuff.
So it’s not just me then? or my tv? or my monitor? and it’s definitely darker than last season? damn. yeah works for the show not for giffing *whine* this would go perfectly under your “first world problems” tag haaaaHA
