BRUSSELS SPROUTS - my most very favorite veggie! Never thought I would say that about these mini cabbages, but there is something about them that I simply love. I also love that they are so good for you. (This food is very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Riboflavin, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese) Not only tasty, but healthy!
