Finally getting back into the swing of things after Cabo, I have attempted to feed my belly something other than chips, guac and margaritas. I needed to make something easy and healthy, since it was a little tough to wean off of the glorious Mexican food and drink, and I’m pretty sure that I am still in vacation mode.

Roasted brussels sprouts did just the trick. They are simple to make and they are also a healthy, substantial side. Sometimes, I just pound the Brussels and then eat a fried egg on the side for some added protein and other nutrients.

The secrets out, kids. Quick and healthy dinner. Boom.

Mustard Apple Cider Vinegar Brussels_LYK1Brussels sprouts are also such a great side to pretty much any meat, so this kind of recipe is a good one to remember.

Mustard Apple Cider Vinegar Brussels_LYK3If you don’t have all of these particular ingredients on hand, you can easily swap different oils and vinegars in this recipe, but this combo is a tasty one, so we encourage you all to try it out.

Here’s the how to:

Clean, trim ends and quarter brussels sprouts.

Add the whole grain mustard. You can use regular dijon, but whole grain has such great flavor and texture.
