I like sprouts!:) No, seriously, they look so cute and are very healthy. Just think about how they contribute to cancer protection, cells detoxification, healthy skin and immune function (http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=10)

BTW, I scored 680;)

I really do, no kidding, but the game was fun anyway. I got 370 on the first try.

Thanks, Nicole!

Maybe the Marmite-syndrom, either you adore Brussels spine-chilling sprouts or you really hate them.
I cannot even visit the website without fearing that typical scary sprout smell (in Dutch: spruitjeslucht). Yuk!
