The benefits of brussel sprouts
- They are a good source of protein, iron, potassium, vitamin C which will keep that immune system strong!
- Good source of fiber, which will help keep you regular, and reduce cholesterol. 1/2 cup =2gr fiber.
- Contains Folate which helps prevent birth defects and reduces the risk for heart disease.
- Contains the antioxidants Glucosinolate, and Isothiocyanates which can reduce your risk for cancer.
What about the beets!
- A good source of fiber, Vitamin C, potassium, manganese, and folate.
- Beets will boost your stamina due to their high nitrate content.
- They contain betaine which fights inflammation, enhances performance, and helps the body's detoxification process.
As you can see this dish is not only a great recovery meal but a great meal in general! So lets get started!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1 Bag of frozen brussel sprouts. Its winter, so its going to be frozen.
4-5 Medium sized beets diced into 1/2inch cubes. My CSA is still dishing these out!
2 Tablespoons olive oil.
1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder.
1/2 Teaspoon of onion powder.
1/8 Teaspoon of cayenne (Or however hot you like it)
1 Teaspoon salt.
Put everything into a big bowl and toss it around a bit. Put it on a roasting pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 30 Minutes. Yum!
Sometimes when I have some leftovers I'll reheat them and toss into a salad....very good.
