One of my food goals this year is to eat more vegetables. It isn’t so much that I don’t like vegetables, because I do enjoy all of the vegetables I eat. The problem is that I don’t include enough variety in my vegetable choices. I love spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, and bell peppers, but I rarely venture beyond these common vegetable varieties.
Until just recently, I had never even tasted Brussels Sprouts. Now, having finally, after 30 years of living, eaten a few good helpings, my enlightened assessment is that Brussels Sprouts have an undeserved bad rap. Brussels Sprouts are really, yes really very good!
So far, I feel like the year is off to a good start. I’ve been trying to incorporate more chard and more kale into our meals and I’ve met with a lot of success. I am also feeling really good about branching out to try new-to-me vegetables like Brussels Sprouts. After my good experience with Brussels Sprouts, I think I may be ready for Turnips, Bok Choy, and maybe even Kohlrabi.
