Brussel Sprout salad
Brussel sprouts are back in season.
Most people generally have a love or hate relationship with the old Brussel Sprout and we believe that all comes down to the preparation of them. We have made a Brussel sprout salad this week and it is delicious so if you are a fan or want to convert you can give this a try! Brussel sprouts are extremely high in vitamin K and vitamin C. They also contain folate, manganese, fibre, vitamin B6, choline, vitamin B1, copper, potassium, phosphorus, omega 3 fatty acids, iron, vitamin B2, magnesium, vitamin A, calcium and zinc. They support detoxification, contain many antioxidants, have an anti-inflammatory effect and support cardiovascular and digestive function!
