Broccoli leaves are edible... so into my green smoothie they go!

I just harvested a beautiful head of broccoli from my garden... and got to thinking... I wonder if I can use those broccoli leaves in my Green Smoothie this morning.

Now, I've NEVER used broccoli greens before...  so I wondered if you could even eat them.  So I googled it... and found this very helpful list of what's edible from the University of Florida, agriculture department.

And..  YES, the broccoli leaves are indeed edible!  So into my green smoothie they go!
