Brussels sprouts are part of the Brassica family of vegetables, which includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale. The brassicas are wonderful to include in your diet anytime, and especially when you are doing a detox. They are rich in phytochemicals, and are celebrated for supporting liver detoxification and their anticarcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Brussels sprouts in particular are full of fiber and vitamins C, E, A and K. They have chemicals that are believed to play a role in keeping the body’s DNA intact and functioning properly. In the cookbook Brassicas, they are referred to as “the emeralds of the food world.”
