Okay—this one needs no introduction: Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon!
You can’t go wrong with bacon and Brussels sprouts. It’s not just about combining smoky, crispy bacon and nutty, caramelized Brussels sprouts—we’re also adding the sweetness of aged balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of freshly cracked black pepper. Plus, my Roasted Brussels Sprouts + Bacon recipe is ridiculously easy to prepare—you pretty much just toss Brussels sprouts and bacon onto a pan and roast it off in the oven. Follow my step-by-step instructions, and even a total kitchen noob could make this perfectly!
It’s no wonder this is one of the most popular Nom Nom Paleo recipes of ALL TIME. Just remember to use Whole30-friendly sugar-free bacon, like Wellshire Farms’ Sugar Free Paleo Dry Rubbed Bacon. It’s not hard to find; just stroll over to the bacon section at your local Whole Foods Market, and look for the little Nom Nom Paleo sign. As part of my month-long January partnership with Whole Foods Market, all stores will feature “Nom Nom Paleo Picks”—including my selection for compliant bacon!
So what are you waiting for? Check out my recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon here!
P.S. If you have a few extra minutes and don’t mind cooking up the bacon separately, check out my Version 2.0 of this recipe—it’s exclusive to my 2018 Ready or Not! wall calendar! (If you have it hanging on your wall, simply flip ahead to November!)
The new version requires an additional step, but it results in even crispier bacon. And face it: you need a new calendar anyway—and this one comes with a sheet of cute little Nom Nom Paleo stickers!
A note to my Nomsters: This is one of a series of daily blog posts I’m writing in the month of January 2018 to help those doing a Whole30 to kick off the New Year.

And remember: Throughout January 2018, I’m partnering with Whole Foods Market nationwide!
