Flu-fighting Veg

Supercharge for winter! Which vegetable superfoods are the best choices to ward off colds and flu?

Obviously all veg is good, but to maximise nutrient intake in simple ways, some are better all rounders than others.

Cabbage is a good choice, containing cancer-fighting glucosinolates, though a better choice would be watercress. This is a powerhouse of iron, antioxidant vitamins A and C, folic acid and even calcium as well as cancer-fighting compounds. The best choice, however, has to be kale – still the cabbage family but higher in vitamins, minerals and active compounds. Studies have also linked kale consumption with lower breast cancer rates.

Whichever you choose, don’t forget the orange juice to optimise iron absorption!
