Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts contain functional compounds called glucosinolates that assist with detoxification of cancer-causing substances and inflammation reduction. High in lutein and zeaxanthin, these tiny balls hold promise for eye health. The cruciferous veggies also hold several important vitamins and minerals. One cup contains almost 2x the daily value of vitamin K and well over 100% of the DV of vitamin C. Folate, fiber, iron, and calcium are also listed as key nutrients. Place Brussels sprouts in a bowl of fresh water to remove any dirt or bacteria, then toss them into the NutriBullet cup as the 50% leafy green component or as an additional cruciferous veggie boost!

Selection Process

Quality Brussels sprouts are firm, compact and bright green. If the leaves are wilted or the body is puffy or soft in texture or if there are tiny holes in the leaves, then avoid.
