What’s good for me in this dish?
Brussels sprouts top the charts in vitamins K and C. They also contain folate, vitamin A, manganese, and lots of fiber. They provide cancer protection in the form of sulfur containing phytonutrients called “sulforaphane.” Brussels sprouts lower your risk of bladder, prostate, colorectal and lung cancer.
