Brussels sprouts have the same cancer-inhibiting potential as cabbage and other Cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli and cauliflower) because they contain the nitrogen compounds called indoles and a significant amount of Vitamin C. This vitamin acts as an antioxidant to fight off the free radicals, as well as an immune booster. In addition, one cup of brussel sprouts only has 38 calories!

    And it speeds up your metabolism! Of course it makes your stomach… behave “different” but if you eat a cup of these every day for some time (and cut down on sugar & carbs), you’ll surely see some results :) Besides, eating seasonally is good for you!
