Fresh Turnips.

Turnips are a root vegetable and member of the cruciferous family, along with other vegetables like bok choy, Brussels sprouts, and kale.

Both their roots and leaves, also known as turnip greens, are safe to eat, and like most cruciferous vegetables, they’re praised for their health-promoting effects.

Turnips have an excellent nutritional profile.

Like other cruciferous vegetables, they’re low in calories but pack plenty of vitamins and minerals.
