Brussels sprouts are a vegetable and you should always eat your veggies. But there are a few reasons why these little “cabbages” make for a particularly great choice.

They’re also low in calories, which makes them ideal for anyone trying to lose weight while maintain a diet with a high protein content.
Brussels sprouts are also packed with amino acids and are delicious when paired with nuts, or even bacon for a healthy dose of amino acids. Mark Sisson provides several reasons to include Brussels sprouts in your diet here.
