Slow Cooker Pot Roast and Brussels Sprouts Recipe
By: Julie Hand
Bring on the beef with this perfect-for-winter pot roast recipe. With 26 grams of protein per serving, grass-fed beef is one of the best sources of protein on the Bulletproof Diet. To make sure you’re getting 100% grass-fed meat, request grass-fed and grass-finished when you purchase. Animals are often grain-fed for 30 days before slaughter to fatten them up, which removes their health benefits.
Brussels sprouts pack a powerful punch — high in potassium, folate, vitamin C, calcium, fiber, and iron. They’re low in calories as well as carbs, and have a low toxin load. Like all cruciferous vegetables though, they’re not adequate raw. This is due to the antinutrient called oxalates, which inhibits nutrient absorption and can wreak havoc if you’re prone to kidney stones. However, cooking these veggies does cut down on oxalates, so it’s best to eat them that way. Oh, and by the way, all of that grass-fed butter the recipe calls for…that’s good for you and tasty too.
Keep in mind, you’ll need a slow cooker for this recipe, which is on the Suspect list due to the fact that people tend to use it to overcook food. However, as long as you avoid that, it’s a great kitchen appliance to use because you can make a variety of dishes with minimal effort.
