brussel sprouts

One of our favorite ways to eat vegetables like Brussels sprouts, potato, green beans, broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower is by chopping them up and roasting them in the oven! Eating healthy shouldn’t be something dreaded. It should add joy to your life, as well as keep your body functioning at its best! And roasted veggies is an easy way to do that!

ALSO. If you are not eating Brussels sprouts this way…what are you doing with your life?? No wonder you don’t like them!

It’s hard to come up with an excuse to not eat well when it tastes this good. Your taste buds will be happy, your tummy will be happy, and your body will thank you.

All you need for this roasted veggies recipe are three ingredients, plus your veggies of choice! Today I used fresh Brussel sprouts, green beans and potato.

The Importance of Vegetables

Eating veggies isn’t just good—it’s like giving your body a VIP pass to wellness! Packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, veggies are the superheroes of nutrition, supporting everything from a strong immune system to smooth digestion and optimal organ function.

Why bother? Well, here’s the scoop: Veggies bring a diverse range of essential vitamins and minerals to your plate, essential for keeping your body ticking. Micronutrients like these are the unsung heroes behind cellular processes, metabolism, and keeping your tissues in tiptop shape. Plus, the fiber in veggies is like a superhero for your gut, preventing constipation and promoting a healthy gut microbiome.

And guess what? Veggies are low in calories, high in water content, and your BFF for weight management. The fiber keeps you feeling full, curbing overeating and supporting your goals, whether it’s shedding a few pounds or maintaining your current glow. Plus, tossing a colorful mix of veggies into your meals doesn’t just amp up the nutrition; it adds a burst of flavor, texture, and visual delight to your culinary adventures.

So, there you have it—eating veggies isn’t just a health strategy; it’s the secret sauce for a vibrant and joyful life!

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time30 minutes
Course: Side Dish
Servings: 4 people

Equipment

  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Cookie Sheet

Ingredients

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 cups brussels sprouts
  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 3 cups fresh green beans

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 385° F
  • Chop the potatoes and brussels sprouts into cubes. The smaller the brussels sprouts are the better they cook!
  • Keep all the vegetables in separate piles. Dump the potatoes in a bowl and drizzle enough olive oil to cover. Mix it thoroughly. Put the potatoes on one side of the cookie sheet.
  • Do the same thing with the brussel sprouts and green beans, keeping them all separate so you can add them to the cookie sheet in sections. (This makes it easier to remove them if they cook faster than the other.)
  • Once everything is on the cookie sheet, sprinkle salt and garlic powder on top.
  • Cook in the oven for 15-30 minutes. Sometimes the brussels sprouts will cook faster than the green beans and potatoes, so make sure to keep an eye on them.
  • When golden and crisped to perfection, enjoy! They go amazing with steak or chicken!

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
