Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Pear and Bacon Recipe

Key Notes: Paleo, Keto, Diabetic-friendly brussel sprouts


Careful, this side dish could accidentally be all you want to eat! Slightly charred and nutty organic brussel sprouts, caramelized organic pears, and salty, smokey nitrate free organic bacon come together in a scrumptious tray. A perfect companion for lunch and dinner, or that snack you’re constantly sneaking bites from out of the fridge, it’s additive in the best way. Nitrates/nitrites are terrible for the body, so organic bacon is a must. Organic brussel sprouts are a safe and healthy way to get some leafy vegetables, and getting your bartlett pears organic means you don’t have to worry about pesticides or herbicides hiding amongst your food. You can easily double or triple the amounts for a party, and it reheats well as leftovers.
