#thursdaythrive Brussel Sprouts










All about Brussel Sprouts!
- Sprouts contain high levels of vitamins A and C, folic acid and dietary fiber, and can help protect against colon and stomach cancer.
- An 80g serving of sprouts contains four times more vitamin C than an orange, and a cup of cooked Brussels sprouts contains only about 60 calories.
-  Last year, a team of scientists and local schoolchildren used the energy from 1,000 Brussels sprouts to light a Christmas tree on London's Southbank.
- The freshest sprouts are green with a white base. If they are slightly yellow or brown it means they’re getting old.
