Parsnips

  • Improved Heart Health: parsnip contains a generous amount of potassium, which acts as a vasodilator (a compound that prevents arteries and veins from tightening), thereby reducing blood pressure and stress on your heart.

  • Give the Immune System a Boost: parsnip contains vitamins C and E, which can help rid your body of free radicals that can potentially cause various diseases. Vitamin C can also help produce white blood cells to boost your immune system and ward off foreign microbes.

  • Bone Health: Parsnips provide a decent amount of magnesium and calcium, two crucial minerals for bone development.

Carrots

  • Remember when you were a kid and believed that carrots help you to see in the dark? Turns out there are actually eye health benefits that can be linked to eating carrots. The carrot gets its colour partly from beta-carotene, in the carotenoid family of antioxidants. Beta-carotene shows to help prevent against age-related eye diseases, like macular degeneration.

  • Aids Weight Loss: carrots contain both soluble and insoluble fibres. Fibre takes the longest to digest and thus promotes a feeling of fullness and prevents you from bingeing on other fattening foods.

  • Lowers Blood Pressure: Carrots are packed with potassium. Potassium helps relax the tension in your blood vessels & arteries which enhances the blood flow circulation and brings down your elevated blood pressure.

Sprouts

  • Brussels sprouts are an excellent source of protein, and just 1 cup of raw Brussels sprouts meets the National Institutes of Health’s recommended daily requirements for vitamin C and vitamin K.

  • Vitamin K helps the blood to clot and vitamin C is used for growth and repair

  • Brussels sprouts also contain a high amount of the antioxidant, Kaempferol, famous for its health-promoting properties such as reducing cancer growth, ease inflammation and promote a healthy heart.
