Brussels sprouts are the food that every kid loves to hate. You should love them. Because Brussels sprouts have a similar plant origin to broccoli and cabbage, they share many of the same health promoting nutrients, including being high in fiber. 10 sprouts contain 7 grams of fiber. To prepare them, cut them in half, toss in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast them, flat side down at 400-450 degrees until the bottoms being to crisp up (about 20 minutes). Cooking them this way will caramelize some of their carbohydrates giving you a simple and irresistible way to prepare Brussels sprouts that are a far cry from the boiled ones you were forced to eat as a kid.
These fiber-filled foods aid weight loss by helping you feel full longer and monitoring digestion.
