Having trouble getting in your daily serving of veggies? Know you should be eating them, but you don’t know how to prepare them?
These are problems I had too when I began eating healthy. Then I realized if your food is fresh and nutritious, it doesn’t require much work to make it taste good.
As a 10 year old you wouldn’t see me touch a green vegetable, especially not a BRUSSEL SPROUT. Now I can’t believe I missed out for so long. I feel that brussels have a bad rap in the taste department, but now they’re in my top 3 favorite veggies! They pack so much delicious flavors in a small bite and are SO good for you. This isn’t a fancy recipe but more of a How do I make and eat brussels? I’m always looking for easy ways to cook things when I’m busy and hungry. This brussel sprouts recipe is simple, and I can cook them as I’m cooking my protein for the night. Brussel sprouts go great with tuna steak or with simple shrimp.
What are some health benefits of brussel sprouts?
- Their phytochemicals may protect against cancer
- They are high in Vitamin C, another anti-cancer agent
- They contain glucosinolates, which help the body detox
- 1 ½ lbs of brussel sprouts
- 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Garlic, minced (optional)
- Pull off top layers of brussels, trim the ends, and cut the brussels in half.
- Coat skillet (cast-iron) with olive oil and put on medium-high heat.
- Place brussels facing down and cook for 5-8 minutes or until browned.
- Add salt & pepper & garlic if you desire.
- Flip brussels and cook for 5-8 minutes.
- This is best served warm right after cooking. It's not the best leftovers unfortunately; so make it fresh!

You can also do them in the oven. Makes it just a little bit easier while you’re preparing the other courses. And yes I knew you at 10 and know that brussel sprouts never crossed your lips. LOL
