What’s Fresh? Brussels Sprouts!
Did you know that the same compounds (called glucosinolates) that give Brussels sprouts their bitterness have also been shown to help prevent cancer? The fiber in steamed Brussels sprouts can help lower your cholesterol. (You can avoid the sulfurous smell by not overcooking them.) Brussels sprouts are also loaded with vitamin K (important for blood clotting) and vitamin C (important for blood, bone, and skin health). Look in the cooler for local, organic Brussels sprouts from Hermit Creek Farm in Highbridge, Wisconsin.
