Good for you! I can't stand the flavour or the after-taste... I'm grimacing just thinking about it.
To answer your question -- yes, they're good for you. Usually, the sharpest-tasting vegetables contain the most phytochemicals, which are supposed to be protective against heart disease and cancer. Brussel sprouts are a great source of vitamins A and C.
Hello, I second the motion and not because I love them too. I checked out the USDA's free nutrient database and here is what I found......
36 mg. Calcium, 1.2 mg. iron, 20 mg. magnesium, 317 mg. potassium, 62 mg. vitamin C, 775 IU vitamin A, and 465 mcg. beta carotene. Talk about a cool vegie!
