Do you think for a second that your grandma and grandpa ate chia seeds? Seriously, the concept of “clean eating” wasn’t even in their vocabulary. And when nana made a Sunday family dinner, she never even thought to use coconut oil instead of whole fat dairy in her cookies, cakes, and pies. However, back in the day, granny did served up some pretty dope super foods without realizing it.
We’re going old school with seven super foods that grandma is bringing back…
1. Brussel’s Sprouts
You probably turned your nose up at grandma’s Brussel’s sprouts (or what Popeye called “muscle sprouts”) at family dinners. However, a study in the Carcinogenesis journal, found that these mini cabbages are literally pack with some serious nutrients, and can even help prevent cancer!
In fact, a mere cup of the smelly cruciferous veggies packs 240-percent of your recommended daily amount of vitamin K1 and an amazing 130-percent of your daily vitamin C quota, plus admirable potassium, fibre, manganese, and B vitamins to boot. The antioxidant-potent Brussel sprout can be cut in half and sautéed in a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a healthy, cancer-fighting side dish.
