healthy Brussels sprouts and carrots

Many of my clients tell me that they don’t have too much trouble staying on course when it comes to exercise. The area that gives them the most frustration is their eating. Sometimes it’s not how much you’re eating, but what you’re eating that makes you stumble. In that spirit, I am posting one of my favorite healthy recipes for roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots.

This one is a side dish that comes from Home Chef.  It’s a home delivery company that sends fresh ingredients and recipes to your doorstep each week for about $9.99 per meal.  These meals are restaurant quality and portioned so that you don’t overeat.  Genius! I love roasted veggies because they taste great and roasting adds flavor without adding many calories. I used to hate Brussels sprouts. Now that I know how to roast them, I think they are delicious! This recipe feeds two people so adjust accordingly.
