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!

When I'm on the Whole30, I find it easy to get enough protein and healthy fats (avocado alllllll day, everrrryday, am I right?) but struggle to get in enough veggies, especially when the thought of eating one more salad makes me want to run and hide. My solution is this Broccoli and Kale Green Soup - it's simple and easy and gives me a veggie boost when my meals are lacking.
Chances are if you invite me to a BBQ, I'll bring these potatoes. Chances are if I invite you over for a BBQ, you'll eat these potatoes. Summer fresh potato salad with herb vinaigrette is a BBQ staple in our house.
