Brussel Sprouts Three Ways

Brussel Sprouts have a terrible reputation but actually I think if you get the method right, they can be pretty good. Also they are pretty good for you so I thought why not share this post for cooking brussel sprouts three ways. Tis the season and all that. My absolute fave has to be the dry fried indian version. My husband doesn’t do brussel sprouts and I would love to lie and say he gobbled these up but no, he just doesn’t like sprouts and that totally didn’t happen. People like what they like. I can’t change his taste buds.

So about Sprouts. Brussel Sprouts are considered a ‘bitter’ food. Bitter foods contain liver boosting nutrients, along with fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). These aid with digestion and liver function. Sprouts contain all of that and a significant amount of protein and dietary fibre so they are a really good choice for good ‘gut’ health.

My mum also makes awesome sprouts at this time of year which makes me sad because she is away at the moment. Boohoo. Such a baby. I know.

It’s been a while since I have written on the blog. No excuses here. I have just felt a little overwhelmed and I wanted to give myself the grace to go with how I felt and take a little break. Blogging is unbelievably competitive and I have to keep reminding myself about why I started. My love for food and making a living whilst at home were definitely important but the main reason was that I wanted to help people and so I prayed that the blog would open up ways for me to help people, just like me who have struggled with all this eating well and holistic health stuff. I continue to pray that I am able to be of benefit to our readers. The end of our first year is fast approaching (I count from January because the blogs before then were very few). The first year was all about building up the site as much as possible. This year will be all about transitioning to showing you my healing journey and making the website about holistic healing. I also have a few other things up my sleeve that I am excited and nervous about. 

Anyway, do enjoy the recipes and try at least one! Go on!
