Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries, Walnuts and Feta Cheese

Hello! Just a quick check-in on this beautiful Saturday morning…. yes, it’s really beautiful. The high is 68 today and 72 tomorrow! I might just be able to get in some outside runs. Yippee! Today, I’m starting my first day of the Conscious Cleanse. So, of course, I’m chugging the lemon water like crazy this morning.

It’s something that I’ve never really gotten into, but tea that’s a different story. I went to Starbucks yesterday and tried the China brewed green tea {not bad, but mine’s just as good} and then I went to Target and stocked up on some different flavors to try.

    • I think the maple syrup in this recipe would help with the bitterness that you taste. Hope you get a chance to try them!
