Maybe you already have, but I thoroughly recommend you get on the brussel sprouts band wagon. These green gems are delicious, healthy and can be whipped up in a variety of ways. As I have shared before I am all about adding a dash of quick flavor.

Brussels sprouts are rich in many valuable nutrients!
They are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. Also a valuable source of numerous nutrients including folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids.
- 1 and ½ Pounds of Brussels Sprouts
- 2 Tablespoons of Grape Seed Oil
- 1 Tablespoon of Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 Teaspoon of Dried Rosemary
- Pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.
- Prepare the brussels sprouts by cleaning, dry and cutting them into bite-size pieces.
- Add to a bowl and mix in oil, vinegar and spices.
- Place brussels sprouts on a cooling rack on top the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.
Beauty in the Brussels
Brussels sprouts are good for you, but the main thing to remember when preparing them is not to overcook them. There are some really yummy recipes starring this little super-food, but if they’re not tasty, it doesn’t matter! No one will get the true benefit. That’s simply the truth – am I right?
My favorite way to get them to roast evenly is to add a cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. The brussels sprouts go on top of the rack and you’re all set.
Meal Prep Tip
If you are a busy babe on the go these are perfect to make ahead of time. I will often put together a batch on the weekend and then enjoy them cold on a salad or as a dinner side. When I come home from the gym they are waiting for me in the refrigerator. Nothing beats a meal that is ready to serve. Especially when it is delicious brussels sprouts!
