CRUCIFEROUS VEG

Love them or hate them, they are the superheroes of the vegetable aisles.
Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, bok choi, cabbage, radish, turnips, broccoli and arugula some of the verb you should try and incorporate into your diet.

They are high in antioxidants, low in calorie meaning you get more bang for your buck.  They are high in folate, vitamins K, C and E.  They are also very high in fibre which means they keep you fuller longer, great when you are trying to lose weight.  They are also high in phytonutrients which are said to help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of developing cancer.  Another little known fact is that contain indole-3-carbinole which can reduce oestrogen levels in men, a key factor in staying building muscle and getting lean.

I will post some quick and easy recipes using some of these veggies over the next few weeks.
