Harvest of the Month: Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts have a bad rep, but trust me after reading this you’ll want to give them a chance! Besides being one of nature’s best super foods, Brussels Sprouts provide you with:

  • 20 essential vitamins and minerals 
  • Folate
  • Vitamin K
  • dietary fiber
  • Magnesium.
That’s all good news, but what does it really mean?

Well it means that a 1/2 cup serving you’ll get about 48mg of Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that keeps your body’s cells operating at tip top shape. Plus the Vitamin A supports your healthy eyesight, and 247mg of Potassium can help regulate your blood pressure and fluid balance. If that wasn’t enough Brussels Sprouts are rich in Carotenoids , Isothiocyanates, and Inoles.

“What are those?” you might ask…

well they are phytochemicals that may help prevent cancer by promoting the elimination of potential carcinogens from the body and may also reduce your risk of heart attack!

Phew!  That’s a lot of benefits packed into this little vegetable! Check out my recipe for cooking Brussels Sprouts for my family!
