Coming from a Standard American Diet (SAD) background, Brussels sprouts have not been a regular part of my diet. Now I understand the importance of them, in part because of websites such as http://www.WHFoods.com, where they write about the benefits in great detail. People with existing and untreated thyroid problems should read the Safety section. Their peak season is autumn through early spring. So far, this is my favorite way to eat Brussels sprouts. I adapted the recipe from a produce section recipe rack card.
