Brussels Sprouts: The Health Benefits of These Little Cabbage Heads! by Beth Aldrich, CHC, AADP, CNT
Remember when you used to feed the dog the brussels sprouts your mom made you for dinner? As a mom now yourself, it's time to realize that you mother was right – they're really good for you! Brussels sprouts are:
- super-low in calories
- loaded with cancer-preventing phyto-nutrients
- high in fiber
These veggies, sometimes called little cabbage heads, get a bad flavor rap, but they taste great with a sweet or tangy sauce or a simple sprinkle of sea salt. Just saute them in olive oil, add a dash of sea salt and enjoy the health benefits!
