I'm currently in love with brussel sprouts. When I was a little girl, I'd call them baby cabbages. They're one of those vegetables that you either loved or tried to run from the table when you knew they'd be on the dinner plate. I always liked them. Getting vitamins and natural nutrients is a part of my daily lifestyle and I encourage it to others - take care of yourself from the inside out. Lately I haven't been able to get enough of them. Low cholesterol, low in calories, protects against cancer due to the high amount of glucosinolates, greater than broccoli.
I get fresh brussel sprouts or pick up packages of them at Trader Joe's, they are so easy to prepare and also filling because of the fiber content. Steam, drizzle with a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice, olive oil then top with a touch of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Additionally, adding indian spices like a sprinkle of curry powder or Garam Masala as well as garlic are also great compliments to your servings. Yum!
knowing that you're taking care of yourself and eating healthy as must as possible should bring a smile to your face everyday.
