new year kick off

So Bozz and I have decided to do a 3-4 week detox... starting yesterday.  So, it's not too late to join us!   Katie went to the Dekalb farmer's market to stock up on fruits and veggies.  No caffeine. no alcohol. no gluten. no added sugar. no dairy. and no processed foods. What will we eat? Lots of fruits and veggies and nuts. mmmmm... we'll be adding back foods as we go along.

Today's recipe to share: braised brussel sprouts. {Katie's been bugging me to get a recipe together, so here it is!}

brussel sprouts
dijon mustard or combination of mustards
dry white wine
salt and pepper

Trim and cut brussel sprouts in half. Heat oil and/or butter [olive oil/coconut oil combo in out case] in a large skillet at mediumish heat.  arrange sprouts cut side down. {If there is not enough room for all of them at once, do multiple batches. Just be sure all are face-side down}  Heat for 5 minutes or so–until the underside is a brownish color.  Then add broth and a dry white wine [enough to cover the sprouts], cover, and bring to a simmer. Simmer until you can stick a fork in them.  Once soft, but not too soft, take out sprouts. Add mustard and cream [aka almond milk for us] to the remaining liquid and reduce.  Once it's reached desired consistency, pour over the cooked brussel sprouts. Voila!
