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!

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.
