Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Kimchi - Paleo + Whole30 Recipe! A delicious way to add more fermented food to your meals!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Kimchi

Brussels sprouts have a bad rep. They don’t have to be the overcooked stink bombs of previous generations. It’s a new generation of brussels sprouts – a roasted, crispy, creamy era for this tiniest of sprouts. If you haven’t tried roasted brussels sprouts, now is the time! Then add kimchi and a quick rice wine vinaigrette and you’re in sprout heaven. Seriously though, roasted brussels sprouts with kimchi are the hands-down favourite roasted veg side dish in our house.  Read more

Hi, I’m Leslie-Anne – A chef and former carb addict sharing my “paleo-ish” lifestyle through my love of cooking!

I know what it’s like to struggle with healthy eating. In 2013, after completing the Whole30, I lost about 60 lbs, completely changed my relationship with food and discovered that the paleo style of eating really worked for me. I realized that making small dietary changes could improve my health fairly easily and I couldn’t stop preaching the paleo-love to all my friends.

I like to think of my paleo approach as paleo-ish. I am not a zealot – I love an occasional crusty slice of sourdough bread as much as I can get down with a bowl of zoodles and meatballs. For me, this paleo-ish thing is all about moderation and eating in a style that makes me feel vibrant and healthy.

Clean eating is a daunting task for any food-enthusiast such as myself. I can honestly say From Pasta to Paleo has inspired me to make clean eating one of my daily objectives, and the guidance offered through Leslie’s posts have allowed me to complete Whole 30 and to continue indulging in a Paleo diet. The pictures of her food hook you, and the honesty, warmth and encouragement in her words gives you that gentle push to accomplish it for yourself. I eagerly try every new recipe she posts – none have been short of awesome!
