Hi Everyone!

Have you tried Brussel Sprouts lately? A lot of people have been scared of this delicious veggie since childhood! Maybe you just haven’t had it prepared quite the right way!

I am a big fan of Brussel Sprouts. They are full of Vitamins C & K, potassium, dietary fiber and more! Consuming Brussel Sprouts (and other cruciferous vegetables) has been linked to lower rates of cancer. Vitamin C helps improve skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Are you willing to try it yet?

My husband hates brussel sprouts. He can’t even stand the smell of them. Until I tried this recipe.

He walked into the kitchen raving about how good whatever I was cooking smelled. Knowing that he hates brussel sprouts I wasn’t expecting to have to share. I want to keep my husband healthy so we can have a long & happy life together, so I let him have some. Even though I could have gladly eaten them all by myself.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did! If you have another variation of brussel sprouts that you love feel free to post it in the comments below!

About 12-16 oz. Brussel Sprouts
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
1 Tablespoon Honey
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to Taste

You can choose to bake your brussels or cook them on the stove.

*Hint: If you are in a hurry, use a bag of frozen steamable brussel sprouts. Pre-cook in the microwave according to directions on the bag. Decrease cooking time on stovetop.

*If you are using fresh brussels, trim the ends and remove any old leaves from the outside. Cut in half for faster cooking.

-Heat Olive Oil and garlic in pan until garlic is lightly browned.
