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.
