What you need to eat: Chinese cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale, collards
Why you need to eat them: If anything deserves the term superfoods, it’s cruciferous vegetables. They’re packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and sulfuric compounds called glucosinolates, which have shown promise in reducing lung and colorectal cancer risk. They can be eaten raw or cooked. Try using Chinese cabbage (aka napa cabbage and bok choy) or brussels sprouts in place of regular cabbage in coleslaw.
