brussels sprouts nutrition

Let's talk brussels sprouts and why you should give them a try - again.

Just like a child needs to be introduced to a food 10-15 times before they will willingly eat it, adults can be similar. That was me.

I could never understand why my mom loved them when I was little.

I thought they were horrible.

I can't remember what changed. I don't remember how many times I had to try them. I don't remember the turning point or dish where I decided to give them a try again. But I'm glad I did. Now I love them.

Brussels sprouts health benefits are another reason to love them.


  • They may protect against cancer
  • Support the respiratory system against viruses- hello cold season. 
  • They may help protect against intestinal pathogens
  • support intestinal immune function

And that's just a couple of the benefits. If you've only tried them 9 times, maybe go for the tenth😊... With bacon!
