Winter Veggies
By Prerna Gauba
 
 
TOMATO
A fruit or vegetable? The opinion may be divided but there is no debate on the health benefits of tomatoes. Full of lycopene, vitamin A and vitamin K, tomatoes are known to have cancer-fighting capabilities. They also keep your blood pressure in check, are rich in antioxidants and help to reduce the number of free radicals in the body. Relish the veggie in the form of steamy hot tomato soup in winters.

RED BELL PEPPERS
Red bell peppers not only have a bit more nutritional value to them but also have a sweeter crisp taste that goes well in any meal. Containing phytonutrients, these have powerful antioxidants that help fight cancer. These also help treat and prevent inflammation in the body as well as eye disease. Snack on red bell peppers to keep stress and fatigue at bay.
 
BROCCOLI
It’s yummy and helps you lose weight too! High in fibre, broccoli aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating. A disease-fighting vegetable, it is rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C and folate, which boost immunity level. Also, broccoli is packed with antioxidants that reduce risk of stomach, lung and rectal cancers.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Brussels sprouts are enriched with vitamin C and K as well as fibre, potassium and Omega-3 fatty acids. If you have haemoglobin problems or are pregnant, then these small green vegetables will prove to be the best for you as they are rich in folic acid and vitamin B, which prevents neural tube defects.
 
SPINACH
Popeye’s favourite, this chlorophyll-packed type of produce is an excellent source of almost every vitamin and nutrient that your body needs. Scientists are of the view that a diet heavy in spinach may be able to prevent everything from heart disease to colon cancer, arthritis to osteoporosis.

CARROT
Want lustrous hair, perfect eyesight and a glowing skin? Make this orange vegetable your favourite! Carrots are the richest source of some important antioxidants, like vitamin A. What’s more, with a regular intake, you can say goodbye to anti-ageing creams, as this veggie takes care of that too – its high level of betacarotene slows down the ageing of cells.
 
SQUASH
If you are suffering from asthma or arthritis, squashes are the best intakes. Used often in salad or to make vegetable sandwiches, this vegetable is also rich in potassium, magnesium and fiber, anti-inflammatory nutrients like vitamin C and beta-carotene.
 
ASPARAGUS
Revered by ancient Greek and Romans as a prized delicacy, asparagus is one of the oldest recorded vegetables. Low in sodium and high in potassium content, it is excellent for expecting mothers.
 
SWEET POTATO
A good source of fibre and iron, sweet potatoes give energy to the and also help regulate your digestive system. It has many anti-cancer nutrients like vitamin A, C and manganese. Boil and have this root vegetable or add it as an ingredient while cooking different cuisines.
 
EGGPLANT
Presence of nasunin in eggplant helps protect your brain cells from damage. And because eggplants are loaded with fibre and potassium, researchers believe they may reduce your risk of stroke, hypertension and dementia.
