Are you tempted to quit reading because of the name of this recipe?  I know I would have been several years ago!  I wouldn’t have touched a Brussels sprout.  Growing up and well into my adult life, if it wasn’t sweet, I wasn’t eating it.  And I was always on a diet too, although I could never seem to lose any weight.  After changing my life years ago in order to start healing, I started eating a diet primarily of vegetables, and to my surprise, I feel better and weight fell off without having to diet.  It only makes sense to eat foods packed with nutrients yet low in calories.  My body is satisfied because its needs are met, and my tummy is full because veggies have so much fiber.  Although there are many benefits to eating raw foods, cooking your vegetables can be easier to digest.  Now, I love Brussels sprouts and can make a whole meal out of them.  Brussels sprouts actually have a lot of protein in addition to the fiber and micronutrients, which help our bodies to naturally detox.  Try preparing Brussels sprouts this simple and flavorful way, and see if you like them!
