Wellness Tip
Your refrigerator - How long is food safe?
Food safety experts recommend that you eventually discard opened containers of food, even if stored in the refrigerator. For example: discard juice in 7-10 days, olives in 2 weeks, salsa in 1 month, mayo in 2 months, and ketchup, jam and jelly after 6 months. Even in the refrigerator, bacteria can grow and multiply. Play it safe. Regularly clean out your refrigerator. Keep the thermostat set at 40 degrees or below.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS GRATIN (Gluten Free / 3 points)
Category: Side Dishes
Description: Brussels Sprouts Gratin are the perfect Holiday side dish! The brussels sprouts are roasted until crisp, then topped with a light cheese sauce made with Gruyere and Parmesan, and baked until brown and bubbling. If you are as obsessed with brussels sprouts as I am, you’ll love these.
This recipe can be made the night before and heated on the day.
Brussels sprouts are available year round; however, they are at their best from autumn through early spring when they are at the peak of their growing season.
Plant phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts enhance the activity of the body's natural defense systems to protect against disease, including cancer.
