Brussel Sprouts Beneficial
Growing up my mom MADE me eat brussel sprouts. Back then, I thought they were disgusting! In order to choke them down, I would drench them in ranch dressing. Not exactly healthy and I definitely can’t afford to be drenching anything in ranch dressing these days. I am on a quest to lose the last few baby lbs. Now that I am older and able to try things when I want to try them, I have found a new love for brussel sprouts. My two favorite ways of cooking them are by roasting them and just adding different toppings to them.
Brussel sprouts are a super food. They help fight off certain cancers, help you to lose weight, and they help lower your cholesterol. These tiny cabbages are low in calories but help fill you up. Perfect!!! These little guys are a yes in my book!
