Why Brussels Sprouts?

Brussels Sprouts and other members of the Brassica, or cruciferous are your friends for so many reasons, including they help your body manage excess estrogen. ⠀

Why might that be?  Because these veggies di-indole methane known as DIM.

DIM has been shown to favor the production of protective estrogens and reduce bad estrogens. Overall, DIM lowers your excess estrogen.

Yes you have to eat lots of cruciferous veggies to benefit your estrogen balance.  So I hope this recipe helps you eat lots of Brussels Sprouts.♥♥♥
