Brussel Up On Your Sprouts

I remember a few years back my dad and I had this bonding moment over a certain food, brussels sprouts.  We talked about our love for them, how great they are for you and on and on.  My mother was in the other room making gagging noises.  Today we have converted her 100%.  Thank GOD!  The health benefits from these little green balls are amazing. 
Brussels Sprouts are rich in protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which work wonders to get rid of many health problems.  Brussels are an excellent source of vitamin A, C and E.  A serving of these savory sprouts supplies nearly a day’s worth of vitamin C.
