When I initially named my blog I had trouble coming up with a phrase that characterized me and my thoughts-- hence, the unfamiliar, confusing, and temporary title of "enigmatic variant." I wasn't satisfied, and was slightly perturbed at the homonymity between "variant" and "deviant." Yikes!
This morning, while packing my lunch, I realized that one of the fundamental elements of my existence was staring up at me from the cutting board. Broccoli. It's true. I am something of a broccoli addict. No meal seems complete without the nutrient-packed, true green goodness of a broccoli spear. Which is not to say that I am a nutrition freak, though I do find the subjects of food, diet and health fascinating. I just feel that each time I eat a sprig of broccoli, I may become a slightly better person. Or at least, my colon thinks so.
Therefore, welcome to my improved blog entitled "it's better with broccoli." Because it really is.
