First, it is brussels sprouts- yes, with an s.
If you haven't tried roasted brussels sprouts go right now to your grocery store and get some for tonight's dinner. They are too easy, yummy and nutritious to not make a frequent appearance in your family's dinners. Brussels are packed with nutrition too. Per 1 cup there is 38 calories, 3.3 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein! 1 cup will also give you 124% of your daily value of Vitamin C.
Few people know or even care about what the plant of the brussels looks like, but for your educational enjoyment here it is:
One of my favorite ways to season brussels is with oil, salt and pepper, crushed red pepper and powdered parmesan cheese, but the other night I went for a slightly sweeter version with apples and honey.
I tossed these brussels and pink lady apples with olive oil, salt, pepper and honey and roasted at 425 for about 25 mins. I think next time I'll try it with a little balsamic vinegar too.
Easy Brussels Side:
My apologies for vague measurements, but it's usually how I roll in the kitchen.
Brussels Sprouts, halved lengthwise
Pink Lady apples, large chop
Extra Virgin Olive oil
Sea salt and pepper
Toss together in a large bowl, spread on pan and roast at 425 for about 25 mins.
I love movement and habits that promote health and lifetime wellness. I also like stretchy pants, being outside and good-for-you food! Follow me on Instagram @DawnBrownCoaching for more frequent updates.
