I have invited my talented husband Brandon Reader to share his recipes with you!

Brandon has been so supportive to me and Vitalized Body. The revamped website you are witnessing is mainly due to his professional and creative efforts. Thanks, Brandon! Bonus points – He has a passionate flair for cooking healthy dishes that are scrumptious. His first recipe that he will be showcasing is his “Brandon’s Brussels Sprouts”! And, yes they are Extra!

Sorry Bobby Flay, Brandon’s cooking is on fire these days!

It started out innocently enough, when we first started dating I walked into Brandon’s apartment and was pleasantly surprised to see an assortment of cookbooks in his kitchen. He quickly began to steal my heart with his culinary skills and passion for combining flavors… the wine helped out too. As we moved forward with our relationship our friendship and love grew, and his flair for cooking erupted. Here we are nine years later and I just had to ask him to share his recipes with you! Without further ado, here we are!

Brandon’s Brussels Sprouts is a simple, yet delicious Brussels Sprouts recipe that is vegan and gluten-free. Easy to prepare and a breeze to make. Read about the health benefit of Brussels Sprouts here.
