Fresh Brussel Sprouts roasted with a little bit of seasoning are a simple and tasty way to consume a lot of nutrients.  If you are new to a plant based diet and haven’t quite transitioned your tastebuds from processed and refined foods they may seem a bit bitter.  Don’t abandon them forever but come back to them as your taste buds have transitioned.  I never thought I would crave them let alone eat them and now I grow them in my garden because I can’t get enough of them.  Brussel Sprouts offer 10%+ percent of your daily intake of 10 vitamins and minerals and they have complete daily intake needs of Vitamin C and K.  Find a way to transition your taste buds so you can include Brussel Sprouts as an option from the list of foods to consume 3+ servings of per day.  Serving size = 1 cup with data from Chronometer
