Turnips

Lately when I have been shopping at the market , I have been seeing turnips all over the place  . I am not a fan but when I found out the benefits of this vegetables I had to make an effort to include it in my meals . Turnips are from the same family as  broccoli, Brussel sprouts , collards and kale .  Turnips contain a phytonutrient called indoles . Indoles may reduce your risk for lung and colorectal cancer . Turnips are anti-bacterial, anti parasitic, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory.  So if you can add this amazing vegetable to your salads , stir fry or in juicing.  Note: If you have issues with your thyroid avoid turnips and consult with your doctor first.
