Eat Swede Rave Repeat



The lowly swede is one of the hardiest root veg to harvest (which is why it's so cheap) and is so much more than a side dish for a Sunday Roast. And ifYotam Ottolenghi's all over it, who are we to argue?


Why is it important in our diet?


Immunity: Full of Vitamins and minerals (100g gives you 41% of daily vitamin C dose- so perfect for winter).


Gut Health: Full of fibre


Weight Loss & Diabetes: The Keto dieters favourite root, less starch than potatoes, take longer to digest while boosting metabolism.


Cardiovascular Health & Blood Pressure: Full of potassium which helps to regulate stress and mitigate the effects of sodium.


Prevents Premature Ageing: vitamin C also boosts collagen production, improves eyesight and stimulates the regeneration of cells in your cells and tissues.
