🥗 FOOD OF THE WEEK – BRUSSELS SPROUTS 🥗

❓Did you know this fun fact?! …

🤓 Brussels sprouts didn’t actually originate in Belgium! They are native to the Mediterranean (along with other types of cabbage). 

💡But in the 1200s they were grown near Brussels, Belgium, which is where they got their name.

✅ If you turned up your nose at Brussels sprouts as a kid, definitely give them a try again – their nutrition power makes them a great addition to your regular rotation.

🔥 Low in calories and high in anti-inflammatory compounds, Brussels sprouts contain kaempferol, which appears to promote heart health and cut cancer risk. 

💪 They also are a rich source of vitamin K, which helps with blood clotting and bone health.

PLUS … they promote stable blood sugar and are a good source of ALA omega-3 fatty acids, which supports brain health, fights insulin resistance, and may improve triglyceride levels.

👨🏾‍🍳 Tip: Try them roasted. So delicious! Toss them on salads, eat them as a side dish, or add them to casseroles.
