Benefits of Turnips
High In Fiber
Fiber helps regulate the metabolism, controls body weight and supports a healthy, active colon. Turnip greens offer about 20% the DV of fiber. Both root and top greens are used for cooking. Wash roots in cold running water in order to remove soil and any fungicide residues from the surface. Trim the top and bottom ends of the vegetable. Peeling may not be necessary if roots are young; however, over matured turnips will have tough skin that should be removed.
