If this blog doesn't persuade you to go Paleo, I've lost all hope. And if you still aren't convinced, I will help you become a badass chef with my non-paleo recipes and cooking tips
Money sucks. And I’ll tell you why.
Well, because it does. Rent, bills, gas, food, the list goes on. EVERYTHING costs money and it infuriates me, as I’m sure it does for the rest of you. I work, but not a lot. I make money, but not a lot. And I eat, a lot. So the combination of the three causes problems because I can’t cook and experiment as much as I like which limits my grocery list to frozen veggies, sometimes fresh, chicken breast or ground turkey, eggs, and bacon (it’s a splurge, leave me alone). This is what cause my experimentation to come to a halt. Or I can make things interesting with the mundane ingredients I already have in my house. Which in this case was Brussels sprouts. In New Jersey, I would buy a small cup of them that probably held 15 Brussels sprouts and it would cost me $3.99. Here in Colorado, I can buy 1.5 pounds of Brussels sprouts and spend $2.oo. Let’s take a moment to hail Sprouts!
So today I decided to get down with my funky side and experiment with my Brussels sprouts and my roommate chose to be adventurous and try it with me. And we both agreed, compared to my favorite method of roasting them with bacon, this wasn’t bad at all. I also wouldn’t put a mediocre recipe up on this blog (or would I?) It’s so simple, the worst chef in the world really couldn’t mess this up.
Makes 2 servings or 1.5 cups cooked Brussels sprouts.
