Parsnips area major source of folate. Brussels sprouts are high in Vitamin C as well as cancer-preventing glutathione. Carrots provide beta carotene. Potatoes, like chestnuts, are gluten free and a great source of VitamIn C. So Christmas dinner, traditionally made, offers benefits especially for winter health and for women of childbearing are who need a folate-rich diet.
