Green veggies have a bad rap.
No, seriously. Kids don’t like them and adults wont eat them. Smother them in cheese sauce and maybe they’ll make the dinner menu. Sigh, it’s not easy being green.
Green veggies are a powerful nutrient for your body. The leafy green veggies are the greatest source of nutrients where veggies are concerned. This is the reason why we ask you to eat them so often, why we eat them daily and why we incorporate them into our 6-Week Shape Up, Go-Fit 21 and 3 Day Reset Plans . The beautiful thing about veggies is they are low in calories and high in nutrients. This leaves your body feeling great, and looking great.
Brussel Sprouts are one of our favourite comfort foods and if you don’t like them, you haven’t tried them our way yet! Brussel Sprouts are nearly half protein and loaded with nutrients. They are high in Vitamin A & C, folic acid and fibre as well as containing iron, potassium, calcium, sulfur, phosphorus and magnesium. Umm, hello!
Here are a couple of tips for cooking Brussel Sprouts:
a) buy them all the same size so they cook evenly
b) either cut them in half or score the bottom with an “x” so they steam from the inside
c) never bake your veggies until burnt, that kills the nutrients. Cook them until bright in colour and slightly softened
