Dr Jockers Comments:
Brussels sprouts are a fantastic food for our bodies. They are loaded with powerful anti-cancer nutrients such as phenyl isothiocyanates, sulfuraphane and indole-3-carbonyl. This super powered SuperFood is also rich in various trace minerals and anti-oxidants.
Like most cruciferous veggies, these have a very hard outer fiber that digests best when it is lightly steamed or roasted. This process breaks down these outer fibers and makes the nutrients more bioavailable.
Adding in the grass-fed butter or ghee is a fantastic way to make this taste incredible and it has tons of good fats in it. Grass-fed butter/ghee is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, CLA and vitamin A & E. It is also a great source of the anti-inflammatory compound butyric acid.
We cannot get enough of brussels sprouts here at DrJockers.com. Delicious, nutritious, anti-inflammatory and a superfood to believe in, brussels sprouts will never let you down!
This is a great companion with a good protein source like grass-fed beef, pastured poultry, wild game or wild-caught salmon. Your family will absolutely love this Roasted Buttery Brussels Sprouts recipe. As always, please leave your comments and feedback below!
