Brussels Sprouts Salad

IMG_7915.jpg

Brussels sprouts have to (most certainly) be amongst the T O P 20 things that make me H A P P Y. Like actually, genuinely + sincerely, happy from the inside out. Is that weird?Either way, lol, they make me + my insides happy little bees! Not to mention the nutritional value that they're packing, always, especially when kept R A W. It's packed with protein, digestive-regulating fiber, and 20 essential vitamins and minerals! Talk about a little superfood packed dish, woo! Brussels contain (just to name a few) vitamin A, C, E, K + folate, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, selenium and manganese.

Holy bundle of B E A U T I F U L nutrition. I'm so in love with this delicious little joyful vegetable because, although some may protest, it's simply a nutrition powerhouse. #FactsOnly

Here's a quick + scrumptious little *raw recipe that I've been making so much lately!
