Loaded Brussel Sprouts

The best way to improve your health is to increase the amount of green veg you eat. It’s a simple tip, but not always the easiest. Green veg doesn’t have to be boring or boiling. This is a fantastic, festive recipe that works well in tandem with evening meals. I find this is a great option for accompanying roast dinners.

Additional Info

If you’re interested in gut health, nutrition and overall well being, I would recommend listening to my podcast with Steve Grant. In this episode, Steve and I discuss the foundations of gut health and what you can do to ensure you’re as health as possible. This is not one to be missed if you’ve ever suffered from any type of gut issues in the past. Sprouts are an especially good source of vitamin C and K as well as providing an excellent source of dietary fibre.
