It seems like every kid is predisposed to hating brussel sprouts but personally, I loved them growing up, which probably had something due to the fact they were covered in butter.
This week I am featuring brussel sprouts because they are truly a powerhouse cruciferous vegetable! They help with inflammation, provide antioxidant support and support detoxification and heart health, and also cancer prevention among other benefits.
They are also super high in key nutrients like:
-Vitamin K and C which actually exceed the daily recommended intake for just one cup
-They are also high in fibre

How should you cook them?
There are a few cooking methods you can follow depending on the type of dish you are making. Here are some ideas:
-Bake in the oven with olive oil and seasoning
-Shred then bake or pan fry to get them nice and crispy
-Boil or steam however steaming in better in terms of keeping nutrients intact
-Sauté with other vegetables
