Brussels Sprouts have a reputation for being bitter. And no one wants to eat bitter food, no matter how nutritious it is.

Well, my Brussels Sprouts are here to change that. They’re actually sweet – not bitter.

That’s because you’re sauteing them. This causes your Brussels Sprouts to get caramelized.

So they actually taste sweet. You’re also mixing your Brussels Sprouts with date syrup.

But don’t worry about this dish being too sweet. You’re sauteing your Brussels Sprouts in Bacon Grease.

And they’re covered in a creamy sauce with garlicky and tangy notes. Your partner will think you’re cheating – on your diet.

Are you missing your morning Avocado Toast? I have a fix for that – my Avocado Egg Bakes.

You have eggs baked in avocados – all topped with salsa. So you have this ooey-gooey mass of deliciousness.

To make the Avocado Bake, cut your avocado in half. Then scoop out the seeds and a bit of the flesh.

This is so there’s enough room for the egg. Then crack an egg into the avocado half.

Place your avocado half in a small baking dish. Then sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Bake for about 15 minutes. Top with scallions and Whole30-friendly salsa like this.
