What Is So Great About Brussels Sprouts?

Sautéed or baked Brussel Sprouts are packed full of healthy nutrition and super delicious.

Brussel sprouts have made a comeback and are an effortless side dish for quick family dinners.

Brussels Sprouts belong to the Brassicaceae family, close relatives of kale, cabbage, cauliflower, and mustard greens, thus offering similar taste and a wide range of health benefits, which makes them a great addition to your diet. Mainly cut, cleaned, and cooked to be served as either a side dish or a main course, these mini looking cabbages provide everything from taste to power-packed nutrients.

Health Benefits of Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are known to be packed with several essential, power-packed nutrients that help the body’s various organs function properly. This superfood contains a high amount of kaempferol, a powerful antioxidant that prevents cancer cells’ growth, reduces inflammation, and promotes better heart health. Furthermore, they are rich in fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, and Vitamin C & K, which together support digestive health, reduce the risk of diabetes, stabilizes blood pressure, and promote immune health. 

How To Prepare Brussels Sprouts

Most of you probably do not like Brussels Sprouts. But that is only because you haven’t had their best recipes yet, or you need to practice the skill of preparing them right. Unlike most vegetables, no boiling for Brussels Sprouts. They should be roasted or steamed with seasoning to enjoy those crispy looking, delicious green mini cabbages.  Follow the steps below to prepare roasted Brussels Sprouts for your next meal.

  • Preheat the oven and trim the hanging or yellow yellows off the veggie. 
  • Add oil and seasoning to your oven tray and add Brussels Sprouts to it. 
  • Roast for at least 30-35 minutes to get golden and crispy sprouts ready to munch on. 
  • You can add roasted nuts and oats, turkey bacon, or breadcrumbs to it to add more taste and texture.

I’m Felicity Nicole, and I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. A tomboy at heart, I can be found hair up, favorite sweatshirt on, cooking up something yummy for my family. I am remarried to a wonderful man who totally gets me (woohoo!)., It turns out God does give us second chances! I am now a stepmom to two adult children who are super beautiful and a nonstop blessing in my life. Watching my son play baseball is by far my greatest joy. I am a transformational coach and Reiki Practitioner on a mission to help women redesign their lives. This mission comes directly from my own personal experience with self-discovery. From an abusive marriage to a healthy, fulfilling relationship, through multiple careers and a lifetime of coaching the women in my own life, what I realized is that I have always had power and tenacity deep within me…I just needed to let it thrive again. My courage and determination to walk away into the unknown and redesign my own story is a shining example that where there’s a will there’s a way. On the lighter side, I like my pizza thick and layered in meat and cheese (remember, I’m from Chicago). I spent 22 years in the veterinary field, where I brought home WAY too many fur babies. And if I had one thing to bring with me to a desert island, it would be coffee.
