So, I HATED Brussels sprouts as a kid. Most kids do, right? But I think that's because way back when, Moms & Dads were not that creative with veggies - sorry Mom.  Brussels were boiled and slimy w/ no flavor.

Not anymore - these are my fav! The "Muscle Brussel" - Great veggie for muscle gain and hunger satiation.  This is my go-to recipe that's easy-peasy.


  • 1 lb Brussels Sprouts
  • 2 cloves, Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 2-4 TBSP Olive Oil (just depends on your preference and macros for the day)
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • Salt to Taste



Preheat oven to 400 F and bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, add the Brussels sprouts and cook for two minutes. Drain well and place the Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Add the minced garlic, cayenne pepper and olive oil and gently toss to coat. Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 15-20 minutes, shaking pan occasionally, until sprouts are quite brown and crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Adjust the taste with more salt if necessary, drizzle with lemon juice, toss to combine and serve.
