Food of The Week: Brussels Sprouts

23 Apr

Brussels sprouts are one of the most healing vegetables. They are full of cancer fighting, immune-boosting pytonutrients. Rich in vitamins K, C, A, folate, potassium, iron and fiber.

Like most cruciferous vegetables, brussels sprouts contain sulforaphane which has been found to reduce cancer cell proliferation. Isothiocyanates and sinigrin are other cancer fighting phytonutrients present in them.

They also protect against heart disease and inflammatory polyarthritis.

I love to bake them in the oven with olive oil, garlic, sea salt and rosemary. Cut them vertically in half, cook them for about 40 minutes and enjoy!

Remember… Eat Healthy, be Happy!
