Crunchy Brussel Sprouts

Brussel Sprouts rule. 

Like broccoli, kale, cauliflower and cabbage, brussel sporuts are part of the cruciferous vegetable family. This is a family with a reputation for being rich in the phytonutrient glucosinolates... well known cancer protectors. Brussel sprouts are known to have the highest amounts of these amazing nutrients along with handfuls of other antioxidants making them a super powerful addition to any meal. They are an anti-inflammatory food, packed with lots of fiber to help support digestion and reduce cholesterol. 

Crucifeous veggies are great for helping support your liver detox pathways, so eating them regularly can help support your body's natural detoxification process. 

Incorporate them into your weekly routine with this simple recipe:

Crunchy Brussel Sprouts

Simply wash, trim and saute them in coconut oil with healing spices like turmeric, cumin, cayenne and sea salt. 

Or simply coat them in sesame or olive oil, salt and pepper and then bake them until they are nice and crunchy! 

I like to sprinkle seeds on top to make the crunchy aspect a little more dynamic. If you like bacon that could be another delicious component to throw into the mix. 

Make lots and pack some for lunch the next day.
