I wanted to share one of my favorite Thanksgiving sides! Confession, I tend to enjoy this as an entree 😇 Because, bacon! I love the savory”ness” of the Brussels Sprouts and natural sweetness of the dried cranberries together. It’s just as delicious without the Almonds if you are in elimination phase of AIP!

•1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
