Posted By AARP Illinois On January 11, 2013 @ 5:55 pm In Health Talk | No Comments
Hello again from Lenise. I wanted to share something special with you today…
Becoming more health-conscious and trying to eat the recommended daily allowances of 3 to 5 servings of vegetables and 2 to 3 servings of fruits per day can be pretty cumbersome. One smart way to achieve this is to juice the fruit and soup the veggies.
Brussels sprouts (yuck, who eats those?) are actually super healthy. At just 8 calories per serving, they’re low in cholesterol and saturated fat while being a good nutritional source of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, high Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Potassium – and it is packed with Manganese. Looking a little yummier now, aren’t they? So let’s go ahead and make some soup!
