BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH CHESTNUTS, PANCETTA AND PARSLEY The sprout recipe below is really only a slight detour from the traditional route.

There is a lot of parsley, I know, but think of it as another vegetable ingredient rather than a garnish.
Low Carb Vegetables - nutrition per 100g. What are the best choices for a low carb (LCHF) diet? These vegetables are some of the most nutrient-dense yet lowest in carbs. Well, 19 of them anyway.... parsnips are there mainly because of how good they taste!
Whilst the cold weather tends to conjure up the desire for carbs and slow-cooked stews, such a change in diet isn’t great news for our waistlines. If you’re keen to keep it healthy, opt for a warm salad instead; these satisfying recipes are substantial enough to curb winter cravings, simply switch raw ingredients for cooked quinoa or roasted veg and enjoy the nutritional benefits of fresh food with a heartier feel.
Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Garlic - Apart from being ridiculously cheap and oh-so-pretty, brussels sprouts are very healthy too. If you like to eat them, you’re one of the luckiest people in the world.
