Not only the well-known citrus fruits can give you a vitamin C boost, vegetables can also help with that. Brussels sprouts, broccoli and spinach also contain a lot of vitamin C. So it's time for stews and salads with these delicious veggies. The good thing about these vegetables? You can also use them while meal prepping, for example by storing them in mason jars in the fridge. So you have a quick lunch or an easy side dish for busy days!
