Legumes are one of the best sources of vegetable protein and are far more than just a simple ingredient on the winter menu.
For far too long, dishes with legumes have been considered simple or “just” for vegetarians. But after a number of star chefs showed creative ways to use peas, lentils, and beans, legumes started gaining popularity. The United Nations even named 2016 the International Year of Pulses (Legumes) to raise awareness about the sustainability, affordability, and versatility of this food group.
Since the legume group encompasses everything from quinoa to beans (there are over 12,000 different types of legumes), there are thousands of recipes to explore.
Brussels sprouts are walnut-sized and light to dark green – actually grape-like arranged buds of this cabbage plant. Like green cabbage, brussels sprouts taste best after the first frost, when their sugar content moderates their bitter taste and makes their cell structure more delicate. Usually brussels sprouts are cooked and tossed in butter as a side dish, but they also taste good in casseroles, as soup or very thinly sliced even raw. Brussels sprouts have 4.7 percent of valuable plant protein with amino acids that the body can easily utilize. It is also an excellent vitamin C donor in winter and also provides the vitamins B1, B2, B6, folic acid, iron, potassium and plenty of fiber. Brussels sprouts are also used in folk medicine to reduce both weakness and tension, to facilitate weight loss, to eliminate constipation and acidification, and to prevent atherosclerosis. With a glucosinolate content of 237 mg per 100 g of vegetables, it is also associated with cancer prevention!

Organic apples are great for so many reasons!
Did you know that an apple contains more than one million bacteria? This is what scientists at Graz University of Technology found out in a 2019 study. Eating apples is therefore not only beneficial because they contain an abundance of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, fiber but also because they contain microbes. The bacteria found in the seeds and flesh, can have beneficial effects on the microbiota in your intestine. In this study, it was also examined whether there is a difference between apples from conventional cultivation vs organic apples. The result was clear: the organic apples showed significantly more diverse bacterial communities. So enjoy your organic apples and stay healthy!
