My friend Aruna had posted this recipe on her blog and I customized it a tiny bit to suit us MS fighters. Thanks to Aruna for allowing me to use her recipe here!

Brussels Sprouts belong to the Brassica family of vegetables like cabbage or Kale. This therefore fights cancer. It also helps in eliminating toxins from our bodies by producing enzymes that cleanse our system. This vegetable is good for the bodies with auto-immune disorders like MS due to the high concentration of vitamin C. So, why wait? Enjoy another variation of brussels sprouts.
