Brussels Sprout Salad

Brussels Sprouts are packed with tons of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Here are some benefits from just 1/2 cup serving!
  • Contains 20 essential vitamins
  • Rich in glucosinolates, which help to kill cancer cells and eliminate potential carcinogens from the body
  • High in fiber - 2 grams per serving
  • Relatively high in protein - 2 grams, accounting for more than 25% of the calories
  • Rich in vitamin C, another anti-cancer agent
  • Contains Zea-xanthin, and important dietary carotenoid, which can help prevent retinal damage from UV rays
  • Rich in minerals such as copper, calcium, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.
Boiling Brussels Sprouts for just 9-15 minutes decreases their total glucosinolate content by 18-59 percent! It also kills the life-giving enzymes. 

Most people have never tried RAW Brussels Sprouts - even if you don't like them cooked, try this salad! It is tasty - and great for you!
