(MEATLESS MONDAYS/VEGAN RECIPES) Brussels sprouts are back in season, so why not try this delicious seasonal side dish or light lunch for this week’s meatless meal? While Brussels sprouts are often eaten cooked, they are equally delicious raw like in this Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Hazelnuts and Dried Cranberries.

The mighty sprout is proven to help lower cholesterol, prevent cancer, and help with digestion. Besides being nutritious, shaved Brussels sprouts are a tasty option when you’re craving a hearty salad and don’t want to use your usual lettuce. As always, happy eating! — Global Animal
