Juliette's nutrition tip : Be aware of 'windy' veg

It's not just an old wives' tale: some veg like onions, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, beans and sprouts naturally create more internal wind than other veg. This is because they contain naturally occurring sugars and starches that are fermented by bacteria in the lower intestine to produce gases like carbon dioxide and methane. That's not to say you should avoid them as they are very nutritious – it's just that being forewarned is being forearmed!
