24th December

Our last stop on the vegetable tour today! It’s Christmas tomorrow! Make sure you have this one in your trolley today, it’s tradition after all. But don’t forget about these after Christmas, if they are cooked fresh and not for too long (preferably steamed), they don’t need to have quite a strong a taste. One magazine tried to convince me a couple of years ago to stir fry them but I think we just need to remember to steam them and have them. Have you guessed yet?

Brussells Sprouts

These contain lots of vitamin K (for good blood health) and C (for a healthy immune system), folate (for healthy brain function) as well as lutein and zeaxanthin (for healthy sight. They are little balls of goodness 🙂

I am not going to suggest a recipe today but suggest you don’t overcook your sprouts tomorrow and you continue to have them throughout 2018.


I hope you have managed to try some new veg this advent and been reminded of some you have not had for a while.

I would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and best wishes for a healthy 2018.
