Low in calories and loaded with nutrients, it is no wonder that this humble veggie has been in a spotlight of my autumn season dishes, both savoury and sweet.

On top of that, this one cup contains over 50% of vitamin C RDI (anti-age, cell repair, immune boost), as well as abundance of magnesium, potassium and other vital minerals for a strong and healthy body.* Now, how cool is that?
