PARSNIPS Can Help You Lose Weight
Parsnips are the essential ingredient in pasties, but very few commercial pasties contain this distinctive flavoured starch vegetable.

The potassium content (541mg) of parsnips exceeds the banana (370mg) and potato (407mg). Potassium is the foundation mineral of all muscular tissues. In addition, potassium and phosphorus (77mg) combined are vital for the transportation of oxygen into the brain. Be smart, don’t forget the parsnip next shopping trip. The only problem is that potassium is fairly heat sensitive, over 30% can be destroyed by excess cooking, therefore you are back to bananas for pure potassium power.
