Berry Nutty Brussels Sprout SaladIt seems like every year I make a resolution to eat a healthier, more balanced diet, but somehow by February, I’m back to the quick and easy meals in exchange for the things I know I should be eating.

I feel like salads would be a good way to eat healthier, but sometimes it’s hard to get excited about a salad. They don’t sound very filling or fulfilling.

Also, on cold, winter days, I want something warm and comforting. Not a crisp, cool salad.

Not to mention that in winter, the produce section is a little lacking.

Berry Nutty Brussels Sprout SaladThis salad takes away all of my excuses. It’s warm, it’s in season, and totally fulfilling. Brussels sprouts have 3g of protein per serving and 3.3g of dietary fiber. Add in the protein and fiber from the Berry Nutty bars and I promise, you won’t feel hungry after you finish this up.
