Brussel Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

I am not sure about you, but when I was younger I absolutely despised Brussel sprouts. It was just something about them that made me yell out YUCK!! It wasn’t until I got older that I found out they are so many different ways to prepare and season foods that you can enjoy, when normally you would shy away.

I can now either have Brussel spouts but they HAVE to be steamed or baked with the right seasonings for me to have it on my plate.

Got this recipe from none other than Registered Dietitian, Molly Linek. Check it out!
