How many of you are cooking at home more in 2022? Eating more home-cooked meals, and VEGETABLES in particular, is the key to good health! It keeps your immune system strong and reduces inflammation in the body.
How many of you like Brussels sprouts? They are a superfood in the cruciferous vegetable family, and a rich source of anti-cancer compounds. They have sulforaphane, which helps your body make more of the master antioxidant, glutathione! They also have I3C and DIM which helps your body metabolizeestrogens properly. Brussels sprouts are an excellent source of fiber to feed all the good bacteria in your gut microbiome.
For those who are sensitive and find it hard to digest Brussels sprouts, try taking Digestive Enzyme Pro before the meal to help reduce symptoms of gas or bloating.
The key is figuring out how to make this cruciferous superfood taste amazing! Getting that perfect balance between savory, sweet, tart, and bitter is key! Believe it or not, this recipe is kid-approved! My son gobbled up his serving! :) Enjoy this quick video with the recipe in the description section of the video.
Cheers to “Food is Medicine!”
