Roasted Garlic and Balsamic Brussel Sprout Recipe!


Hello everyone! My name is Peggy Exume, also known as VeggiePeggy, and I am so excited to be contributing to Jillian’s blog again! I received so much wonderful feedback about my Sticky Sesame Cauliflower, the last recipe I contributed, and it brought me so much joy.

I have another delicious recipe for you all that I hope you’ll enjoy. You can probably guess by my AKA “VeggiePeggy” that I am a lover of all things vegetables! Learning to implement a variety of vegetables into our daily meals is so important, yet can be a struggle for some. That is why I love making fun, easy, and delicious vegetable recipes to share with others. A diet rich in vegetables can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, lower blood pressure, lower risk of digestive issues, and they provide essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, such as antioxidants and fibre. I will never not be in awe of the power of fruits and vegetables and the benefits they provide us! If you read my last contributing blog, you know my personal story of how switching to a plant-based diet has changed my life. This is why I am very passionate about helping others to add more plants to their meals.
