Keto Garlic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe
Get all of your misconceptions about bland, boring vegetables out of your head. This keto garlic-roasted Brussels sprouts recipe is rich and flavorful.
While I enjoy Brussels sprouts just about any way you can make them – roasted, steamed, fried, you name it – the garlic and bacon in this recipe will win over tougher customers that prefer a livelier recipe.
Garlic on a Keto Diet
Many people are used to using sauces and condiments containing sugar and gluten for cooking. On a keto diet, however, all of those carbohydrates are problematic.
Truthfully, sugar and gluten aren’t great for anyone, whether they’re following a ketogenic diet or not.
The great thing about using garlic on a keto diet is that it adds a ton of flavor to your meals without jeopardizing your ketosis and spiking your blood sugar.
On the contrary, garlic is pretty darn nutritious. It’s a good source of manganese, vitamin B6, and vitamin C, as well as lesser amounts of other nutrients.
Some studies have shown that garlic supplementation benefits the immune system.
