Thanksgiving-Style Brussels Sprouts

Hey there strong people!

First off, my apologies for not posting a recipe last week. While I would love to spend all my time creating wonderful recipes for you, I am also at 3 other places throughout the week. I go from teaching P.E. at St. John’s Elementary School, to my Personal Training clients at HealthQuest Fitness Center to covering the strength & conditioning for the girls Volleyball and Basketball at Napa High School. I love that all my platforms give me the opportunity to impact the lives of so many people.

Now, on to the recipe! I LOVE brussels sprouts and I LOVE thanksgiving flavors. This recipe has a perfect combo of sweet, salty, and smoky. To make this recipe extra healthy and Whole30 compliant (sugar-free), use sugar-free bacon and cranberries.

We enjoyed this side-dish with a wonderful steak and mashed (or smashed?) potatoes!

Have a great day!
