Brussels sprouts aren’t to everyone’s liking, but they’re teeming with wellbeing wins. These brilliant brassicas are full of antioxidants, helping to reduce oxidative stress in our cells. One study found that brassica vegetables have particularly helpful anti-inflammatory effects for our bodies.

What’s more, sprouts are also full of fibre, helping to maintain the health of our digestive system.

Getting enough protein is essential for good midlife health, and prawns are a delicious way to help us reach our daily intake. Along with protein, prawns also contain a number of helpful vitamins and minerals, including iodine. We need iodine for proper thyroid function and brain health, yet many of us are deficient.

Once this Brussels sprouts and prawn curry recipe is done, serve with brown rice, coriander and a handful of almond flakes for added crunch!
