Winter Veggie Superstars

Stock up on these amazing superfoods this winter

Winter Veggie Superstars

Scientists at Cornell University are working on developing a "better" broccoli, bolstering its levels of cancer-fighting compounds while also giving it a fresher (less rubbery) texture. Since super-broccoli may not hit stores for a while, stock up on these super-foods.

Cabbage: Stacked with vitamins B and C, zinc, calcium, and magnesium, cabbage also contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties. But it has a smelly reputation, too-the sulfurous scent is a result of being overcooked, so grate or slice it thinly and then sauté until just tender.

Winter Squash: This hearty veggie contains potassium, fiber, and vitamins B1, C, and folic acid. Tip: The richer the color, the richer the nutrients!

Artichokes: They're bursting with magnesium and folate. Clip off the sharp leaves before you steam, broil, or bake them. If canned artichokes are easier, buy them packed in water rather than oil and rinse well to lower sodium levels.
