Great things come in small packages

I’m talking about Brussels sprouts.

I LOVE Brussels sprouts! But sadly, they get a very bad wrap on being one of the most hated vegetables. Sad.
I admit that I didn’t eat them when I was a kid. And not until I was in my twenties is when I started to steam them and gobble them up. Today, it is one of our (my husband and I) most loved veggies! Small, cute, compact and full of great flavor! I enjoy them steamed and plain- nothing else. They also pack a full punch of vitamin K and C, as well as other important nutrients that we need on a daily basis. Check them out!

In honor of my sprout love, I featured them in today’s lunch.

I also made a chicken, spinach wrap.

  • Flatout wrap
  • hummus
  • feta
  • spinach leaves
  • red bell pepper
  • chicken breast chunks
  • s & p

Healthy eating!

    Roasting is totally my favorite way to eat them. I LOVE brussels as well.Cut in half, tossed with Olive oil and lots of salt and pepper and roasted at 425 until brown. So delicious!
