Root vegetables are to fall as asparagus is to spring. And yes, you know a true foodie when their season’s are marked by the changes in produce not the changes in weather. And I know, Brussels Sprouts aren’t root vegetables, but the name of this recipe was so catchy I couldn’t help myself!

Deconstructed Paleo Chicken Egg Roll Bowl

My boyfriend doesn’t follow diets of any kind, typically considering himself a meat-and-potatoes kind of man. I offered him a big bowl of this as soon as I took it off the stove and I couldn’t believe how much he liked it!
