Broccoli Delight


Nor: N Tre: T Yu: Y

At the start of the class…

T: Nor, thank you for the gift that you sent me last time.
N: You are welcome. I hope you like the broccoli.
Y: Broccoli? The vegetable…?
T: Indeed. I think it was harvested in Nor's backyard garden.
Y: Really? I couldn't believe Nor has a green thumb!
N: Thank you for the compliments but I am not expert in farming.
Last month, I planted approximately 150 seeds of broccoli.
T: That's a lot. Let me guess… broccoli is one of your
favorite vegetables.
N: Certainly!
Y: (Hesitantly asked…) May I know why you like broccoli?
N: It is delicious and undoubtedly a healthy food. I think
it is the food that has kept me out from catching colds for
almost six years now since I regularly included broccoli in
my diet.
Y: Really? That's amazing!
T: Well, there is a concrete scientific explanation for that.
Broccoli is rich in vitamin C, A, K and other phytonutrients
that boost the immune system and assist the body's
detoxification system.
N: It is also a good source of dietary fiber to keep me fit
and trim (winking his eyes)!
Y: Hmmm... (listening with all ears)
T: Wow! A good idea to reduce the number of my spare tires…
hahaha! So, Yu do like to gobble up some broccoli?
Y: I am not into it. I have a preference for meat over
  vegetables…but on second thought, I might give it a try.
N: Just remember this old adage, health is wealth…
T & Y: Right!
